10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed
The FirePro S9150 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.
Lets look at the FirePro S9150 game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2021. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 202 games in the list.
A FirePro S9150 card at 1080p is seeing a weak frame rate when running Resident Evil 8 on Ultra - 0 FPS. Lets look at the predicted performance it will get on Battlefield 2042 which is 0 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Star Citizen is predicted to perform on this hardware, which gets a playable 29 FPS.
We move on to 1440p, and tested Resident Evil 8 which delivered weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Next we have Battlefield 2042 running on FirePro S9150 which is predicted to get L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Star Citizen is predicted to get L: 57FPS, M: 45FPS, H: 30FPS, U: 22FPS at 1440p. 1440p gaming on the FirePro S9150 is not powerful enough to deal with the increased resolution.How many years will the FirePro S9150 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the FirePro S9150 in your PC?
