All games with system requirements of DirectX 11 or lower are met by this card.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2020 popular games.

And another popular game was eFootball PES 2021 that returned L: 168FPS, M: 132FPS, H: 89FPS, U: 64FPS at 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a Radeon HD 7950 Boost Edition Crossfire is certainly a viable option for these higher gaming resolutions.
