AMD Radeon HD 7950 Crossfire
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The Radeon HD 7950 Crossfire is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system 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 2023 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 297.

A Radeon HD 7950 Crossfire card at 1080p is seeing a playable frame rate when running Forza Horizon 5 on Ultra - 33 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 looked at Forza Horizon 5 where it was playable. The frame rates it scored for the game presets were - Low: 65 FPS, Medium: 52 FPS, High: 35 FPS and Ultra: 25 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 not powerful enough to deal with the increased resolution.

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

Alternatively a good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB.
