Muscle-Flexing: AMD Radeon HD 7970 3GB Graphics Card Review
Even if this card is too expensive, 7950, 78xx and 77xx are supposed to be GCN based, bringing similar benefits and performance scaled down accordingly.
That means AMD has done nothing to move the performance at <$249, which is were the bulk of the discrete GPU desktop sales are.
the GTX 500 series has ~5 but the HD 6000 has ~15 and the HD 7000 ~20
even Nvidia said it's cards would probably reach 8 (I think)
and most devs nowadays prefer Direct compute or openCL than CUDA
Multiplayer testing is way more reflective of a system as a whole when it comes to FPS in first person shooter games. Even on older systems, single player FPS are much higher than they are in MP. That is why I would rather see a MP test than a single player even though the scenarios/route will not be 100% accurate each time, but only close. If you feel MP is too inconsistent, then you can do a single player fraps run, like with scenes from Operation Swordbreaker. I don't mind seeing how the 7970 stack up vs other cards in that scenario either.
Best ever, pricey but you pay for performance I am very happy with my purchase.I had before sapphire 6990 and while performance was better it was little too much heat and noise from that card so I sold it and got one 6970 from his and it was very good but I missed my 6990 performance...not anymore!!!!!Get it you will not regreat your decision.
#) I think you meant HD6970 in the sentence "It is 39.6 and 43.9% ahead of the HD 7970 in the MSAA-less mode".
#) Please include Crysis Warhead numbers. We have lots of history with that engine so comparisons are easy.
If xbit had the sample as the many websites had it, this review is kinda late.
But thanks again.
Who cares about some of those old games that already run 100+ FPS on 2 gen old HW?
Hmmyeah, something to think about if you want to be taken serious by hardcore gamers (you know, the ones who are the target buyers for this card).
It's becoming increasingly relevant & is supposedly more of a focus with this specific architecture.
