How well can the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Toxic 6GB Edition run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The Radeon HD 7970 GHz Toxic 6GB Edition 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. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

Game performance for the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Toxic 6GB Edition where we look at the bigger games played in 2019. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 351 games in the list.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Toxic 6GB Edition performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Cyberpunk 2077 and predict it will deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 8 FPS, Medium: 6 FPS, High: 4 FPS and Ultra: 3 FPS. We proceeded to look at Diablo 4 to see how that compared and predict that it will return a weak 5 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We predict the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Toxic 6GB Edition will run the upcoming game Cyberpunk 2077 to a weak performance level. Predictions across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 6 FPS, Medium: 5 FPS, High: 3 FPS and Ultra: 2 FPS. Another game researched was Diablo 4 with predictions of L: 10FPS, M: 8FPS, H: 5FPS, U: 4FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which returned L: 65FPS, M: 52FPS, H: 35FPS, U: 25FPS at 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Toxic 6GB Edition we get the impression that it is not the best choice to run modern games.

How many years will the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Toxic 6GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Toxic 6GB Edition in your PC? 12-18 months of top end gaming is still left in this graphics card

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Toxic 6GB Edition? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB which is 77% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 897 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which is 33% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 685 games from the most demanding games today.

7990 and 690 are about the same in performance, at the same price and near same performance, 690 is better as 7990 is major power hog.
