How well can the Radeon HD 6990 Asus Edition run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The Radeon HD 6990 Asus 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. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 11.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2019. In particular we focus on how well the Radeon HD 6990 Asus Edition runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 334 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the Radeon HD 6990 Asus 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: 49 FPS, Medium: 38 FPS, High: 26 FPS and Ultra: 19 FPS. We proceeded to look at Death Stranding to see how that compared and predict that it will return a weak 0 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the Radeon HD 6990 Asus Edition performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Borderlands 3 and saw it deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 37 FPS, Medium: 29 FPS, High: 20 FPS and Ultra: 14 FPS. We then checked the performance on Death Stranding to predict if that will run well. It is predicted to be weak with a 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. In summary we feel the Radeon HD 6990 Asus Edition running at 1440p is not the best choice to run modern games.

How many years will the Radeon HD 6990 Asus Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon HD 6990 Asus 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 6990 Asus Edition? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 88% better and can meet 897 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, as it can run 686 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 41% increased graphics performance.
