How well can the Radeon HD 7950 Double D Black Edition run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

Getting one of these Radeon HD 7950 Double D Black 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.

This PC hardware performance game review for the Radeon HD 7950 Double D Black Edition graphics card, when running 2019 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 143 games in todays list.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the Radeon HD 7950 Double D Black Edition performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Borderlands 3 and saw it deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 3 FPS, Medium: 2 FPS, High: 1 FPS and Ultra: 1 FPS. We proceeded to look at Diablo 4 to see how that compared and predict that it will return a weak 0 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran Borderlands 3 on the Radeon HD 7950 Double D Black Edition to see that it got a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 2FPS, M: 2FPS, H: 1FPS, U: 1FPS. Another popular game to investigate at 1440p with this card was Diablo 4 which we predicted will be weak in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 0 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Planet Zoo where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were weak at 5 FPS. In summary we feel the Radeon HD 7950 Double D Black Edition running at 1440p is the wrong choice for PC gaming.

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

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon HD 7950 Double D Black Edition? Are you looking to upgrade a Radeon HD 7950 Double D Black Edition? Then we would suggest getting a 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB, as it can run 901 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 133% increased graphics performance. An alternative great upgrade graphics card would be a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, which has 72% better performance and can run 685 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.

Radeon HD 7950 Double D Black Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon HD 7950 Double D Black Edition is a special edition of the Radeon HD 7950.
The new features include a core-clock raise from 800MHz to 900MHz and memory clock increase from 1250MHz to 1375MHz, making it similar to Radeon HD 7970. A new cooling system called Double Dissipation was installed which should keep Radeon HD 7950's temperatures low under extreme loading.
The performance boost is around 5.5% when compared to the reference Radeon HD 7950.

What is the model of the PSU? It depends a lot on how much amperage it can really deliver through 12V

Is it the PSU that came within the Case, perchance? If so, opening your computer and taking a look at the PSU label should do. If you know the manufacturer or exact model, you can look it up in the official page

That's very low, and not capable of properly running this. Is it showing 12V1 and 12V2 or just one 12V value?

Oh, then it's not just 14A. If 12V2 is also around 14A, this should work but it's cutting it too short. You might want to consider upgrading your PSU too, since you're getting a High end card

Yeah, should survive a week, provided you don't stress much your system, it could crash/freeze because of low power.
Make sure you buy a branded 750W with decent efficiency ;)

Probably, but you should seriously stick to known manufacturers. The Amperage is a more direct way of finding out how much power a PSU can truly deliver. That 35$ 750W is of low efficiency, hence the relatively low price. Even a 520W unit such as this one is of better quality, even though the Capacity is lower, at first glance

Joel - I really doubt it's 80+, a 750W certified PSU should deliver around 50A at the very least

So would this be pretty much an overclocked version of the Double D 7950? If so, could I easily overclock the Double D without any extra ventilation to get to this level? Because the cards are pretty much the same, and if this one doesn't melt at that speed, then the normal Double D shouldn't either.
Any ideas?

it most probably has better cooling fans to keep up with the enhanced performance but if you want of course you can try. i would recommend checking hardware forums like tomshardware for people who already did it or make a post there yourself. you are most probably not the first guy to have that idea and these guys will be able to give you better, more detailed and more reliable advice than gd members. good luck! however do NOT try to set these clock speeds right away. increase a bit, test under full load, then increase again if stable and not too hot (shouldnt go over 70-80°C under full load)

Thanks for the info, gonna check in tomshardware.
Yeah, I didn't mean the minute I buy it that i'll make the overclock. I'm thinking in the future, like in 2-3 years, when the gfx can't run most games on high.
