AMD Radeon RX 5500M 4GB Performance Review

This Radeon RX 5500M 4GB graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements.

DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

What FPS performance can the Radeon RX 5500M 4GB get on latest AAA 2022 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. This graphics hardware can run 300 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the Radeon RX 5500M 4GB can run Star Citizen at 1080p and predict it will return playable frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 107 FPS, Medium: 84 FPS, High: 57 FPS and Ultra: 41 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Battlefield 2042 returns a weak 0 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the Radeon RX 5500M 4GB performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Star Citizen and predict it will deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 82 FPS, Medium: 64 FPS, High: 43 FPS and Ultra: 31 FPS. We then checked the performance on Battlefield 2042 to see if that runs well. It was weak with a 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a Radeon RX 5500M 4GB is going to underperform if you try and run modern games.

AMD Radeon HD 7970M Crossfire Performance Review

Based on current gaming requirements the Radeon HD 7970M Crossfire is considered one of the weakest cards and wont meet modern AAA game specs.

Radeon HD 7970M Crossfire is capable of DirectX 11 gaming requirements.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2022. In particular we focus on how well the Radeon HD 7970M Crossfire runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 187 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the Radeon HD 7970M Crossfire can run Resident Evil 8 at 1080p and saw it 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 FIFA 22 returns a good 62 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We discovered the Radeon HD 7970M Crossfire ran Resident Evil 8 to a weak performance level. Results across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Another game tested was FIFA 22, L: 124FPS, M: 98FPS, H: 66FPS, U: 47FPS. And then we researched potential graphics card performance on Star Citizen, wih estimates revealing L: 47FPS, M: 37FPS, H: 25FPS, U: 18FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the Radeon HD 7970M Crossfire running at 1440p is not a first choice gaming resolution. While this graphics card would likely be more suited to 1080p gaming, you may be able to make some graphical tweaks in the game options to improve your stability at 1440p.
