How well can the Radeon HD 7950 Crossfire run games
AMD Radeon HD 7950 Crossfire
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

This Radeon HD 7950 Crossfire graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements.

Radeon HD 7950 Crossfire is capable of DirectX 11 gaming requirements.

What FPS performance can the Radeon HD 7950 Crossfire 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 comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 309.

A Radeon HD 7950 Crossfire card at 1080p is predicted to see a reasonable frame rate when running Forza Horizon 5 on Ultra - 51 FPS. Lets look at the predicted performance it will get on Grand Theft Auto VI which is 7 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Resident Evil 8 performs on this hardware, which gets a weak 7 FPS.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the Radeon HD 7950 Crossfire to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have researched Forza Horizon 5 and predict it will be playable. The frame rates predicted for the game presets were - Low: 103 FPS, Medium: 81 FPS, High: 54 FPS and Ultra: 39 FPS. We added Grand Theft Auto VI to our research and predict it will be weak with a 5 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then tested Resident Evil 8 which got 5 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the Radeon HD 7950 Crossfire we get the impression that it is going to need to lower its graphics settings to medium on modern games.

How many years will the Radeon HD 7950 Crossfire graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon HD 7950 Crossfire in your PC? This Radeon HD 7950 Crossfire card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon HD 7950 Crossfire? A great upgrade graphics card would be a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, which has 25% better performance and can run 633 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today. Alternatively a good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 81% better and can meet 967 of their recommended requirements.

Crossfire relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, is up to 42% better than a single Radeon HD 7950 performing by itself it might be worse (depending on whether or not the 3D game supports crossfire or in the graphics driver) than a single Radeon HD 7950.
