How well can the Radeon HD 6950 Crossfire run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

Getting one of these Radeon HD 6950 Crossfire 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 6950 Crossfire is capable of DirectX 11 gaming requirements.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2019. In particular we focus on how well the Radeon HD 6950 Crossfire runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 211.

Running at 1080p this card gets a weak frame rate from Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order with 0 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Diablo 4 which is predicted to return a weak 0 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Death Stranding which we predict will get a weak 0 FPS.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the Radeon HD 6950 Crossfire performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order and saw it deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We then checked the performance on Diablo 4 to predict if that will run well. It is predicted to be weak with a 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. 1440p gaming on the Radeon HD 6950 Crossfire is going to struggle at this higher gaming resolution.

How many years will the Radeon HD 6950 Crossfire graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon HD 6950 Crossfire 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 6950 Crossfire? Are you looking to upgrade a Radeon HD 6950 Crossfire? 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 117% increased graphics performance. Alternatively if you want an upgrade suggestion for the Radeon HD 6950 Crossfire then a good choice would be RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB as this is better than 685 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 60% better performance as well.

Radeon HD 6950 Crossfire Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon HD 6950 Crossfire is a solution of two Radeon HD 6950 put together using AMD'S Crossfire technology.
Check the page of Radeon HD 6950 to know more about its chip.
Crossfire relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, is up to x% better than a single Radeon HD 6950 performing by itself it might be worse (depending on whether or not the 3D game supports crossfire or in the graphics driver) than a single Radeon HD 6950. Expect this combination to draw up to 400 Watt though the average power consumption should be slightly lower.
Even the most demanding games will run at the highest settings.
