How well can the Radeon HD 7950 IceQ Turbo 3GB Edition run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

Getting one of these Radeon HD 7950 IceQ Turbo 3GB 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.

What FPS performance can the Radeon HD 7950 IceQ Turbo 3GB Edition get on latest AAA 2019 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. The Radeon HD 7950 IceQ Turbo 3GB Edition can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 129 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

A Radeon HD 7950 IceQ Turbo 3GB Edition card at 1080p is predicted to see a weak frame rate when running Death Stranding on Ultra - 0 FPS. Lets look at the predicted performance it will get on Diablo 4 which is 0 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Need For Speed Heat performs on this hardware, which gets a weak 12 FPS.

We move on to 1440p, and predict that Death Stranding will deliver weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Next we have Diablo 4 running on Radeon HD 7950 IceQ Turbo 3GB Edition which is predicted to get L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Need For Speed Heat gets L: 24FPS, M: 19FPS, H: 13FPS, U: 9FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the Radeon HD 7950 IceQ Turbo 3GB Edition is unable to perform adequately across modern games at this increased resolution.

How many years will the Radeon HD 7950 IceQ Turbo 3GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon HD 7950 IceQ Turbo 3GB Edition in your PC? We think this Radeon HD 7950 IceQ Turbo 3GB Edition has around 6-12 months until an upgrade should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon HD 7950 IceQ Turbo 3GB Edition? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 136% better and can meet 899 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively if you want an upgrade suggestion for the Radeon HD 7950 IceQ Turbo 3GB Edition then a good choice would be RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB as this is better than 683 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 73% better performance as well.
