Gaming PC build Radeon HD 6950 Crossfire, Core i7-2600K 4-Core 3.40GHz, 16GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a Core i7-2600K 4-Core 3.40GHz processor, a Radeon HD 6950 Crossfire graphics card and 16GB RAM is better performing than 124 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the Radeon HD 6950 Crossfire as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 337 at recommended requirement.

Lets see how well a gaming PC with these components performs on one of todays more popular games, Cyberpunk 2077. To summarise, the Radeon HD 6950 Crossfire fails to meet the very basic performance needs of the Cyberpunk 2077

2nd most popular game: Halo: Reach - In summary, if you are looking to play Halo: Reach in Ultra then you have come with the right graphics card. The Radeon HD 6950 Crossfire can chew through the graphical performance needs of the game with relative ease. 1080p Ultra will return 97 frames, then the larger screen resolution of 1440p can deliver 74 FPS, with the 4K resolution seeing 44 FPS in Ultra as well.

3rd most popular game: Red Dead Redemption 2 - In summary, while looking at Low vs Ultra settings this Radeon HD 6950 Crossfire should only play Red Dead Redemption 2 on a small laptop screen and probably at less than High settings.
