How well can the Radeon HD 7950 VTX3D 3GB Boost X-Edition run games
31 Oct 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

Getting one of these Radeon HD 7950 VTX3D 3GB Boost X-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. Radeon HD 7950 VTX3D 3GB Boost X-Edition is capable of DirectX 11 gaming requirements.

What FPS performance can the Radeon HD 7950 VTX3D 3GB Boost X-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. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 177 games in the list.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the Radeon HD 7950 VTX3D 3GB Boost X-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: 5 FPS, Medium: 4 FPS, High: 3 FPS and Ultra: 2 FPS. We proceeded to look at Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to see how that compared and saw that it returned a weak 14 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the Radeon HD 7950 VTX3D 3GB Boost X-Edition by playing Borderlands 3 which yielded a weak performance. Its FPS results for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 4FPS, M: 3FPS, H: 2FPS, U: 2FPS. Another popular game we tested with this card was Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and that was weak. This graphics card delivered 11 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was FIFA 20 which gets good results with a 67FPS on Ultra 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the Radeon HD 7950 VTX3D 3GB Boost X-Edition, this is a reasonable performance fit for this resolution. Some of the more resource intensive games may well need a few graphical tweak to get the most out of the graphics card at this increased resolution.

How many years will the Radeon HD 7950 VTX3D 3GB Boost X-Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon HD 7950 VTX3D 3GB Boost X-Edition in your PC? Its time to start researching your next graphics card upgrade as the Radeon HD 7950 VTX3D 3GB Boost X-Edition is failing to meet modern day gaming system requirements. A gpu AAA lifespan of around 6-12 months.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon HD 7950 VTX3D 3GB Boost X-Edition? A great upgrade graphics card would be a 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB, which has 127% better performance and can run 900 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today. Alternatively we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, as it can run 692 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 70% increased graphics performance.
