Is HD 7970 Still Good In 2019? Is that enough to play Battlefield 5 and RDR2 at 1080p? Thanks.
Specs:I agree you would have to try. However what’s the rest of the pc spec? Those games require a strong modern cpu and ideally 16 go RAM.
When compared to RX 570 how much difference on performance? I've managed to play BF1 without issues. BF1 ran very well at 1080P ultra settings around 50-55 FPS. I'd say it could run BF5 at high-medium settings.A 7970GHz Edition was rebranded as a R9 280X and the 7950 became the R9 280.
The 7970 (non-GHz edition) sits right in between a 280 & 280X.
The card should still do around 40-50FPS average BattlefieldV at Medium settings 1080p..... When paired with an appropriate CPU.
However you are pairing it with a Xeon that pre-dates the entire Core-I series CPUs... Albeit overclocked.
I would imagine that is more likely to be where you'll see issues, opposed to the GPU itself.
No sir it is not. I had a R9 380 up until last year, played games like Witcher, Tomb Raider etc with mid to low settings at 1080p with ease (40-60fps). But when I tried to play AC Odyssey, even at low it gave me headache. At that moment I realized, I needed an upgrade (1660 Ti). It's almost 2020, some newer games might not even run on 7970.Is HD 7970 Still Good In 2019? Is that enough to play Battlefield 5 and RDR2 at 1080p? Thanks.
Might not run particularly well, but a 7970 supports DX12 etc, and you won't find a single game that'll fail to at least 'run' on a 7970 for a good while yet.It's almost 2020, some newer games might not even run on 7970.
I would not 'upgrade' to a 290 or 390 from a 7970.you should be able to get a R9 290 4Gb for about the same money, give or take and I also have one of them and its about the same performance as the RX 570. I would however suggest the R9 390 8Gb?? but you will find its double the cost of the HD7970 but its about half its age.
