No, it's not faster, but it shouldn't be too far behind.

OK what about a 7970?
post #4 of 11
Probably a tie in overall performance, but never any worry about dual-GPU issues with a single 7970, and of course the space/power/heat savings.

So a 7950 would not equal the SLI in performance..
post #6 of 11
SLI GTX560 Ti should be a good bit faster than the HD7950, as they are faster than the GTX580 by a nice margin. At 1080p though, you wouldn't lose too much power going to a single HD7950 in all but the most demanding games. It will be a performance downgrade overall, but you'll save on power consumption and possibly noise output if you grab a nice non-reference model such as Powercolor's PCS+.

Personally, I'd wait to see what April has to offer before ditching the SLI solution... but that's just me.

The thing is. I want to have the same performance I have now with my SLI setup which is:

1. Everything set to HIGH
2. HBAO On
3. No Differed AA
4. High Post AA
5. Vsync on
6. 1920x1080

I can 55-60 frames all the time on every map with my SLI setup and those settings. I would love to get just the 7950 and be done with it. But if it will not give me the same performance as my SLI setup then I will go with the 7970. I love the performance of the SLI, but I hate the noise and the heat.

I think if you are willing to OC the 7950, it should beat the 560's in SLI in some games and lose a bit in others, but deliver smoother performance and use less power and create less noise. The 7950 at the same clocks is generally only 2-8% slower than the 7970 and both have similar overclocking ceilings.

Based on reviews I have seen, the 7950 is 50-80% faster than a 560ti in most (like BF3, Metro 2033, Crysis 2, etc) games. Also looking at the reviews, I have seen several 7950's OC 50% or more over the stock 800mhz and it scales amazingly as the clocks are increased.

I personally dumped my 6950 crossfire setup and just ordered a Sapphire 7950 OC myself. I'll let you know how happy I am here in when I get it.
