How well can the Radeon HD 7970 VTX3D 3GB Edition run games
28 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The Radeon HD 7970 VTX3D 3GB 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.

Lets look at the Radeon HD 7970 VTX3D 3GB 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. The Radeon HD 7970 VTX3D 3GB Edition can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 248 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

A Radeon HD 7970 VTX3D 3GB Edition card at 1080p is predicted to see a weak frame rate when running Cyberpunk 2077 on Ultra - 0 FPS. Lets look at the performance its getting on Borderlands 3 which is 12 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular The Outer Worlds performs on this hardware, which gets a playable 36 FPS.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the Radeon HD 7970 VTX3D 3GB Edition by researching Cyberpunk 2077 leading us to predict a weak performance. Its FPS predictions for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. Another popular game we tested with this card was Borderlands 3 and that was weak. This graphics card delivered 9 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was The Outer Worlds which gets playable results with a 27FPS on Ultra 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the Radeon HD 7970 VTX3D 3GB Edition is going to struggle at this higher gaming resolution.

How many years will the Radeon HD 7970 VTX3D 3GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon HD 7970 VTX3D 3GB Edition in your PC? This Radeon HD 7970 VTX3D 3GB Edition card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon HD 7970 VTX3D 3GB Edition? A great upgrade graphics card would be a 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB, which has 108% better performance and can run 898 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today. Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which is 53% more powerful.
