If you are already at 900 Mhz with the HIS Iceq HD 7950 Turbo just manually overclock to 1 - 1.05 Ghz with AMD CCC or higher speeds with voltage tweaking. You should run at 60 fps avg easily maxed out in BF3.

HD 7970(925) - 64.4
HD 7950 (1025 Mhz) - 69.7
GTX 680 - 71.8

Good to know, what does a 7870 run it like? smile.gif

Woah, I really do hope I get this..

It's ordered but as I ordered it went out of stock.. I don't know if this means I'll be getting the last card or I missed out.
I'll be checking my emails every hour or so tonight, but I posted on their wall on Facebook asking that if it's pending if I'll get it or not. I'll know for sure by tomorrow.

I'll be jumping on that MSI 7870 Hawk at $280 if I don't get it smile.gif
I might ring PCCG and see what they have to say, see if I can get a 7950 from another vendor at a discount or something. (Maybe pay like an exxtra $20 for a MSI one)

if your order was confirmed it means you grabbed the card before it went out of stock. thumb.gif yeah it would help if PCCG confirmed that your order is going to ship. About MSI HD 7870 Hawk performance

I hope the best for you, but try to go for the 7950 as much as you can. I just bought mine used for $280 and it's amazing.

The only problem is that your res is a fair bit less than mine (1920 x 1080), from the reviews (on older drivers) they're getting 44FPS absolutely MAXED on a 1920x1200? screen so if i turn the AA down a tad it should be a constant 60FPS.

My issue is I have the DC2 TOP, which I'm pretty sure is voltage locked. And it's already running at 1GHz, or is there another BIOS? I don't have much of a complaint running it at the 925/1300 since everything works, and with another card put with it I'm sure it'll be fine.

...now that I've committed OCN blasphemy, I think I'll look into it after work

Hey guys, I'm looking at getting a better card. I just want to know if a 7950 Windforce x3 will be able to OC to achieve the same performance of a Windforce x3 7970.

7950s at around 1ghz core will achieve 7970 (at 925mhz core) performance. 7950s need to get to about 1070+ to reach the 7970 Ghz Edition performance.

Actually at 1000 core, the 7950 is ever so slightly faster (not much, but just a tiny TINY bit) than a stock 7970 at 925.

But yes, a 7950 at 1100+ which is super easy will easily meet or beat a stock GHz 7970.

a HD 7950 needs atmost 75 Mhz more clock to match a HD 7970. So a 1 Ghz HD 7950 will match a HD 7970 (925). A HD 7950 (1125) will match a HD 7970 Ghz (1050 Mhz)

This shows how HD 7870 is limited by bus. But also shows how entire Tahiti chip is limited by its ROP number. AMD needs to increase ROP numbers ASAP.

But anyway HD 7870 is great card, i ordered one.
I will order second one for CFX soon.
