How well can the Radeon HD 6990 Asus Edition run games
AMD Radeon HD 6990 Asus Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The Radeon HD 6990 Asus Edition is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 11.

How well will the Radeon HD 6990 Asus Edition run 2021 games? We will take a look at the biggest releases and frames per second analysis on Ultra graphics settings. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 248 games in todays list.

Running at 1080p this card is predicted to get a weak frame rate from Battlefield 2042 with 0 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Back 4 Blood which is predicted to return a weak 19 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Grand Theft Auto VI which we predict will get a weak 0 FPS.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the Radeon HD 6990 Asus Edition at 1440p and researched how Battlefield 2042 might perform on it leading us to predict a weak set of FPS results. These were, Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We then checked out Back 4 Blood which we predict would have a set of graphics results as followed, L: 37FPS, M: 29FPS, H: 20FPS, U: 14FPS. And another popular game was Grand Theft Auto VI with predictions of L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS at 1440p. 1440p gaming on the Radeon HD 6990 Asus Edition is not going to be able to maintain a playable game at this resolution.

How many years will the Radeon HD 6990 Asus Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon HD 6990 Asus 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 6990 Asus Edition? A suitable upgrade choice for the Radeon HD 6990 Asus Edition is the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, which is 50% more powerful and can run 632 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the Radeon HD 6990 Asus Edition would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300 which meets 312 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 24% better performance.
