3DMark 2013 Graphics Cards Performance Review: AMD and Nvidia Based Products in the New Benchmark
1. AMD needs at least one sku between 7770 and 7850, if not two splitting the difference.
2. AMD needs a part similar to 680 (or the original 925/5500 7970) that uses less than 225w.
Interesting the powertune ratings of 7770 and 7850 are 80w and 130w. 7870 175w, and 7950 is 200 or 225; depending on it you count the original version or those with boost.
It's almost like there are VERY APPARENT holes (one or two between 80-130w/one at 150w/one at 200w or 225w) waiting to be filled. I bet AMD is completely clueless to this fact...and will in no possible way fill them any time next quarter.
Because the 7000 series is stable, you see...
I know for sure AMDis stronger in Fire-Strike, and suddenly comes the site xbitch-labs to say another thing... putting Nvidia in front lol.
which means my score is higher than xbitlabs on firestrike extreme because my gpu (zotac 680 amp!) (1240/7000) is faster... BUT only on that benchmark because the other benchmarks (cloud gate, icestorm ) the cpu affects the score.
my scores for the benchmarks are : (i am using the asus for comparasion because it is closest to my card... you will notice that all of the benchmarks except for firestrike extreme are faster than my setup (fx8350, zotac 680 amp!)
AMD icestorm xbitlabs :amd 7970 (166983) my 7970 (115926) http://www.3dmark.com/is/275520
NVIDIA icestorm xbitlabs gtx680 (165605) my gtx680 (124476)
AMD firestrike extreme xbitlabs :amd 7970 (3558) my 7970 (3592) http://www.3dmark.com/is/256103
NVIDIA firestrike extreme xbitlabs gtx680 (3363) my gtx680 (3588)
the point I am making is not that one is faster than the other but that the firestrike extreme compares graphics cards only (cpu does not affect the score) ... but does it mean anything?, well it is a benchmark...
