How well can the Radeon HD 6990 run games
13 Dec 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The Radeon HD 6990 GPU could struggle if it was to try and run the most demanding games available today, but it meets a lot of game system requirements found in today’s games. Radeon HD 6990 is capable of DirectX 11 gaming requirements.

Lets look at the Radeon HD 6990 game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2019. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 299 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing Halo: Reach getting 111 FPS with the Radeon HD 6990, Red Dead Redemption 2 getting 29 FPS and Resident Evil 3 Remake predicted to get 29 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the Radeon HD 6990 at 1440p with Halo: Reach, which got a strong set of FPS results. These were, Low: 222 FPS, Medium: 175 FPS, High: 118 FPS and Ultra: 84 FPS. We then checked out Red Dead Redemption 2 which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 57FPS, M: 45FPS, H: 30FPS, U: 22FPS. And another popular game was Resident Evil 3 Remake with predictions of L: 57FPS, M: 45FPS, H: 30FPS, U: 22FPS at 1440p. 1440p gaming on the Radeon HD 6990 is capable of delivering a solid gaming experience across larger screen sized monitors. We expect to see High and Ultra graphics settings across most games at 1440p with this GPU.

How many years will the Radeon HD 6990 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon HD 6990 in your PC? Our current calculations suggest a graphics card upgrade will be required in around 12-18 months

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon HD 6990? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB which is 91% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 894 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, as it can run 765 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 50% increased graphics performance.

NOOO, it will cause micro-stuttering! DO NOT ever buy Dual GPUs, any single GPU is way better than this! Don't waste your money on it and/or on the PSU!

I don't much like current generations of AMD Graphics Cards, however, back when this came out I had a lot of respect for it. Fantastic card, and continues to be to this day.
