AMD Radeon Pro 5600M Performance Review

This Radeon Pro 5600M graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements.

Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

Lets look at the Radeon Pro 5600M game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2022. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 304 games in the list.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We predict that Star Citizen will get 44 FPS with the Radeon Pro 5600M, Battlefield 2042 getting 2 FPS and Dying Light 2 getting 21 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We predict the Radeon Pro 5600M will run the upcoming game Star Citizen to a playable performance level. Predictions across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 88 FPS, Medium: 69 FPS, High: 46 FPS and Ultra: 33 FPS. Another game tested was Battlefield 2042, L: 4FPS, M: 3FPS, H: 2FPS, U: 2FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on Dying Light 2, which returned L: 41FPS, M: 33FPS, H: 22FPS, U: 16FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the Radeon Pro 5600M is not the best resolution for this GPU, but if you adjust some graphics settings, perhaps lowering to medium or low at 1440p then this graphics card might be ok.

How many years will the Radeon Pro 5600M graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon Pro 5600M 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 Pro 5600M? A good choice when looking to upgrade the Radeon Pro 5600M would be the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q which meets 810 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 56% better performance.

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.

How many years will the Radeon HD 7970M Crossfire graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon HD 7970M Crossfire in your PC? We think this Radeon HD 7970M Crossfire has around 6-12 months until an upgrade should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon HD 7970M Crossfire? If you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q. This PC hardware upgrade performs 111% better and can run 810 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games.
