[Official] AMD Radeon HD 7950/7970/7990 Owners Thread - Page 1444

post #14431 of 38704
Don't worry general just giving you a hard time lol. I know u were talking about performance but scalability does play a roll as the 670 doesn't benefit nearly as much as the 7970 when overclocked. So even with the 670 120mhz over the 7970, it will not perform as well. Thus why I said what I did previously.

Well I answered it already that question using a bigger resolution, but with 1920x1080, it will play the Ultra preset with Avg frames around 45~55FPS with 1000mhz core, an overclock that many 7950/7970s can do on stock voltage. If you can bring it higher, you can do well over 60FPS.

I would go with the HD7970 simply because when at the same clocks it will outperform the gtx 670 in most games just a few are out there that it doesn't. The few games it manages to beat the hd7970 are games that are getting way over 60 FPS on stock which is negligable. You also have 3gb of VRAM and bus size that is better. Higher vram is beneficial especially if you decide to upgrade to a larger resolution, multi-monitor or multi-gpu setups.thumb.gif

same price here for 7970/670 and its a no brainer with a 7970.
Unless one dont OC at all which seems a nuance if one is on a overclock site.

Yeah, I'd easily take a 7970 over a 670 every time. Difference between a top tier card and a second tier one....

Hopefully mine will continue to work without issue. I noticed on newegg reviews some other brand 7950s were failing after 3 months. When I went with MSI there was maybe only 3 reviews on newegg all 5 star. I am sorry to hear about your ordeal I was hoping the 2nd card would work flawless for you. Hope mine doesn't give issues down the road.

I dunno, I've had two 580 lightnings and two 7970 lightnings and they all performed flawless....

Hehe. There were a lot of "my TF3 died, or my TF3 is DOA, or my TF2 is overheating" threads about 8 months ago. This is partially why I stick to AMD reference. wink.gif
