How well can the Radeon HD 7950 Asus DirectCU II TOP 3GB Edition run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

Getting one of these Radeon HD 7950 Asus DirectCU II TOP 3GB 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. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2019. In particular we focus on how well the Radeon HD 7950 Asus DirectCU II TOP 3GB Edition runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. 128 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the Radeon HD 7950 Asus DirectCU II TOP 3GB Edition can run Death Stranding at 1080p and predict it will return weak frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Need For Speed Heat returns a weak 12 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we researched the upcoming Death Stranding to predict how the Radeon HD 7950 Asus DirectCU II TOP 3GB Edition would deal with it. Our research revealed a weak series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Next we looked at Need For Speed Heat which was weak with a 9 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Cyberpunk 2077 that we predict will get an Ultra 1440p FPS of 0. Gaming at 1440p with the Radeon HD 7950 Asus DirectCU II TOP 3GB Edition is going to underperform if you try and run modern games.
