[Hexus] AMD HD 7950 vs. HD 7970 - at the same clocks - Page 7

post #61 of 144
At same clocks differences are negligible even with 300 less SP's.

79xx is ROP limited.

Over-priced, yet people such as yourself still buy them, which would indicate to the companies who make them, that they are in-fact perfectly priced.

I would like to see:

Clock for Clock Comparison
Max Overclock Comparison

Ideally using a few reference graphics cards for the Max OC test... As that varies from card to card.

Such a comparison may exist, I haven't flipped through too many of the reviews yet... Time crunches are no fun tongue.gif

Problem is you can't tell what is the average overclock at this time. If they wanted to make something interesting and accurate, they would have to test more than one cards and make a graph comparing the base performance and performance increase with other cards like the GTX580, GTX590 and 6990.

They could be limited by a bad product or they could have a golden card representing a fraction of all the cards this is why they must limit their overclock performance comparison to something reasonable, attainable with every 7950.

Agreed on the overpriced. I know like 5000 people are going to say they're at market rate, I agree with that. However, AMD is just milking it until Kepler comes out. As it is, the cost/die size is about 40% higher than the 6000 series high-end. This is a fair comparison since they both have similar die sizes. Realistically I'd rather see the pricing as such: 7970: $450, 7950: $375, 7890: $320, 7870: $260, 7850: $200 by the time Kepler comes out.
