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

The Radeon HD 7970 GHz Vapor-X 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.

What FPS performance can the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Vapor-X 6GB Edition get on latest AAA 2021 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. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 258 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We predict that Battlefield 2042 will get 1 FPS with the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Vapor-X 6GB Edition, FIFA 22 predicted to get 68 FPS and Star Citizen predicted to get 36 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Vapor-X 6GB Edition to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have researched Battlefield 2042 and predict it will be weak. The frame rates predicted for the game presets were - Low: 1 FPS, Medium: 1 FPS, High: 1 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We added FIFA 22 to our research and predict it will be reasonable with a 52 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then researched Star Citizen leading us to predict 27 FPS at Ultra 1440p. In summary we feel the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Vapor-X 6GB Edition running at 1440p is a suitable graphics card for this larger screen res. In some cases we might expect some graphics option tweaks down from Ultra to High to help improve FPS stability when gaming at 1440p.

How many years will the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Vapor-X 6GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Vapor-X 6GB Edition 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 HD 7970 GHz Vapor-X 6GB Edition? A suitable upgrade choice for the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Vapor-X 6GB Edition is the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, which is 46% more powerful and can run 634 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements. Alternatively we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300, as it can run 312 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 20% increased graphics performance.

It comes with 2 modes: a default core-clock of 1000MHz that goes up to 1050MHz in Turbo or a default core-clock of 1050MHz that goes up to 1100MHz. It also features a new cooling system with 2 huge fans. The memory clock will also be raised to 1600MHz, if using the highest option (lethal Turbo mode).
