How well can the Radeon HD 7950 Gigabyte WindForce Edition run games
31 Oct 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

Getting one of these Radeon HD 7950 Gigabyte WindForce 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. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 11.

Lets look at the Radeon HD 7950 Gigabyte WindForce 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. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 127 games in todays list.

Running at 1080p this card is predicted to get a weak frame rate from Microsoft Flight Simulator with 0 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at The Outer Worlds which returns a playable 26 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular FIFA 20 which we saw getting a strong 85 FPS.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the Radeon HD 7950 Gigabyte WindForce Edition at 1440p and researched how Microsoft Flight Simulator might perform on it leading us to predict a weak set of FPS results. These were, Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We then checked out The Outer Worlds which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 52FPS, M: 41FPS, H: 28FPS, U: 20FPS. And another popular game was FIFA 20 that returned L: 146FPS, M: 121FPS, H: 89FPS, U: 65FPS at 1440p. 1440p Radeon HD 7950 Gigabyte WindForce Edition PC gaming is ok at playing most games but might need to have the graphics settings lowered to medium preset in some cases.

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

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon HD 7950 Gigabyte WindForce Edition? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB which is 134% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 900 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively a suitable upgrade choice for the Radeon HD 7950 Gigabyte WindForce Edition is the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, which is 75% more powerful and can run 692 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

I got this card for $90 on ebay with everything with the box, Display port adapter, Crossfire cable, Driver.
The seller made mistake on sending me a 7950 when I asked for a 7850. Lucky me.

Received a BIOS update awhile back. Its stock speed was raised to 900mhz. The newer revisions of the card have it by default.


Supposedly* has a boost speed of 1000mhz. That's what other people have said, but I've never seen it hit that without having to manually set it
