How well can the Radeon HD 7950 Vapor-X OC Edition run games
31 Oct 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

Getting one of these Radeon HD 7950 Vapor-X OC Edition graphics cards allows the gamer to run indie system requirements and some less demanding AAA titles. In today’s PC hardware terms these are considered middle range for gaming performance. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

Lets look at the Radeon HD 7950 Vapor-X OC Edition 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 graphics hardware can run 176 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the Radeon HD 7950 Vapor-X OC Edition is predicted to run Microsoft Flight Simulator with weak performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 0 frames per second. Comparing this to Cyberpunk 2077 which is predicted to get weak results, where it averages 0 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Red Dead Redemption 2, which is running at 14 frames per second.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the Radeon HD 7950 Vapor-X OC Edition performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Microsoft Flight Simulator and predict it will deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We then checked the performance on Cyberpunk 2077 to predict if that will run well. It is predicted to be weak with a 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. 1440p gaming on the Radeon HD 7950 Vapor-X OC Edition is not the best choice to run modern games.

How many years will the Radeon HD 7950 Vapor-X OC Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon HD 7950 Vapor-X OC Edition in your PC?

Radeon HD 7950 Vapor-X OC Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon HD 7950 Vapor-X OC Edition is a special edition of the Radeon HD 7950. See the standard's version page to know more about it.
The new features include a core-clock raise from 800MHz to 850MHz (900MHz in Turbo Boost) which can be of 950MHz in "lethal mode" (via BIOS). A new cooling system called Vapor-X was installed which should keep Radeon HD 7950's temperatures low under extreme loading.
The performance boost is around 4% and 7% when compared to standard Radeon HD 7950 in normal and lethal modes, respectively.

There are quite a few users who complain about this card, mostly about its OC capabilities. Sapphire lead us to believe that when pressing that little button near the Crossfire connectors, the card should OC itself from 850 to 950 Mhz in demanding apps. Mine doesn't. So I just manually took it to 1000 Mhz and also took the Power setting to 10%. Did this in CCC. 31 degrees in idle and 66 under load. In Crysis 3 it went up to 69, just like the CPU.

Could someone recommend me any AM3+ motherboard with reasonable price that could handle this graphics card? As you can see I am really not into computers that much. :)

any 990fx or 990x motherboard, I'd go with the sabertooth 990fx if you can afford it, a cheaper alternative would be the ga-990fxa-ud3

Sabertooth is a high end mobo, for multi GFX setups and very high OCing(only achievable with liquids)
He shouldn't get anything more expensive than the 990fxa ud3 unless he has more money than he can spend, LOL :D

Or he can get a MB like mine, pretty cheap and good enough if he's not into OC'ing, like me.
BTW, we're answering after 2 months from his post :P He might have already got what he was looking for…

So the overall overclock is 12,35% i think.
Because:
975-850=125
125/850x100=14.7%
and
1375-1250=125
125/1250x100=10%
and then 14.7%+10%= 24.7%/2= 12.35% i think thats all right :D

I check the 3dmark scores, search 3dmark-search on google, and you can enter the CPU and GPU and see other peoples results, if the difference is major get the 3570k
3570k+7950=gets around 13000-14000
3470+7950=gets around 10000-11000
