What does 6850 in xfire equal to?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've been thinking about buying another 6850 to xfire with the one I already have. What kind of performance would I be getting? Will it be equvilant to a 6970? or in between 6950 and the 6970?

Since I am talking about upgrades, I'll more than likely get a 2500k to prevent a cpu bottleneck in BF3. Or would my Athlon II x4 630 handle 2 6850 in xfire

CF 6850s is roughly equal to one GTX 580 that being said its only if the game supports CF. Your athlon II would likely bottleneck so 2500k or phenom II x4 would be better for CF.
