AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Toxic 6GB Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The Radeon HD 7970 GHz Toxic 6GB Edition is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Toxic 6GB Edition. In particular this is looking at the Ultra graphics settings to see what sort of FPS this graphics card can get across some of the more popular games played in 2022. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 247 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Toxic 6GB Edition is running Dying Light 2 and delivering weak performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 5 frames per second. Comparing this to Battlefield 2042 which is getting weak results, where it averages 0 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is FIFA 22, which is running at 70 frames per second.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Toxic 6GB Edition to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have looked at Dying Light 2 where it was weak. The frame rates it scored for the game presets were - Low: 10 FPS, Medium: 8 FPS, High: 5 FPS and Ultra: 4 FPS. We added Battlefield 2042 to our tests and saw it was weak with a 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then tested FIFA 22 which got 53 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Toxic 6GB Edition is going to struggle to keep a solid FPS, but a modern game could have a few options tweaked to get it playable at this res but on low graphics settings.
