15 Sep 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the Radeon HD 7950 Crossfire is only really challenged by the most demanding games released today, but normally it is more than capable of running games with a stable frame rate at 1080p. Radeon HD 7950 Crossfire is capable of DirectX 11 gaming requirements.

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the Radeon HD 7950 Crossfire. In particular this is looking at the Ultra graphics settings to see what sort of FPS this graphics card can get across some of the more popular games played in 2020. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 106.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the Radeon HD 7950 Crossfire is running Horizon: Zero Dawn and delivering playable performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 41 frames per second. Comparing this to Cyberpunk 2077 which is predicted to get playable results, where it averages 38 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, which is predicted to run at 33 frames per second.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the Radeon HD 7950 Crossfire at 1440p with Horizon: Zero Dawn, which got a playable set of FPS results. These were, Low: 83 FPS, Medium: 65 FPS, High: 44 FPS and Ultra: 31 FPS. We then checked out Cyberpunk 2077 which we predict would have a set of graphics results as followed, L: 77FPS, M: 60FPS, H: 41FPS, U: 29FPS. And another popular game was Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War with predictions of L: 65FPS, M: 52FPS, H: 35FPS, U: 25FPS at 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the Radeon HD 7950 Crossfire, this is ok at playing most games but might need to have the graphics settings lowered to medium preset in some cases.
