Gaming PC build Radeon HD 7970 GHz XFX Double D Edition, FX-6100, 8GB performance review

This gaming PC performance puts its 3 key components (8GB, FX-6100, Radeon HD 7970 GHz XFX Double D Edition) as better than 0 games from the top 1000 most demanding games of today. The hardware weak point in this gaming pc is FX-6100. If this bottleneck was upgraded, then the number of games (from the top 1000 games list) it could run would increase to 269 at recommended requirement.

This PC’s performance can be benchmarked against todays most popular game, Halo: Reach. To summarise, we are in the realms of who gives a crap, when looking at game hardware demands, because the Radeon HD 7970 GHz XFX Double D Edition card will play Halo: Reach at Ultra settings almost regardless of the screen resolutions. 4K Ultra will get 52 frame rate, 1440p can deliver 87 FPS, and the lower resolution of 1080p comes in at 114 frames per second. For interest the cost per frame rate would look like this - 1080p Ultra costs $0, 1440p costs $0 and 4K costs $0.

2nd most popular game: Cyberpunk 2077 - To summarise, the Radeon HD 7970 GHz XFX Double D Edition fails to meet the very basic performance needs of the Cyberpunk 2077

3rd most popular game: Red Dead Redemption 2 - In summary, go with a 1080p screen res setup for the Radeon HD 7970 GHz XFX Double D Edition. Then, when we look at the Red Dead Redemption 2 Low vs Ultra graphics settings, we think it is best run at Medium setting or a bit higher. For comparison, the returning frame rates would look a bit like this - 1080p Medium 63 FPS, 1080p High setting: 43 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 31 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 61 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 48 FPS.
