[Various]AMD Radeon 7850 & 7870 reviews - Page 7

post #61 of 263
not bad but not worth $350 IMO. real price should be around $200-250, but we'll only see that when kepler launches
post #62 of 263
I think $300 would have been a better Price.

in my opinion is not. performance per dollar charts form tpu shows that 6800 is still king of that category.

God I hope Sapphire brings out a normal 7870, Reference design and all. I cannot stand those gaudy multi-fan gpus. Not to mention, no one makes waterblocks for those monstrosities.

6850 is a 40% performance gain over what I have, 7850 is a 100% performance gain over what I have. To put things in perspective, me/my brother are used to big performance jumps, and I only upgrade about every 2 years. Athlon X2 5000+ BE (3ghz 1st-gen Athlon) to Phenom II X4 955. 2600XT, to 4650, to 5770. I think my bro would be underwhelmed with a 50% performance gain; we got about 20% gaming performance increase just upgrading the CPU (with 5770 graphics). And then a big performance hit going from 1440x900 to 1920x1080. Time to get a beast graphics card, not some bang/buck mediocrity king.

Another way to think of it - the difference between 26FPS and 42FPS is unplayable vs pretty decent gaming experience. That's $130 wasted if you can't play all the games you want at whatever settings you want (performance/$ is 0 in that case). http://www.guru3d.com/article/amd-radeon-hd-7850-and-7870-review/19

So if the 7870 is $350, and the 7890 is coming out, along with the 1.5gb 7950 what would their prices be?
post #69 of 263
Guys we get it, enough already with the HD7000 series is priced high sob story. There's nothing more annoying than geeks whining.biggrin.gif The truth is AMD is ahead of Nvidia with the 28nm GPU release and they're taking advantage of it. I'm not saying I like it but AMD isn't exactly robbing us either. The HD7950 gives better performance than the GTX580 1.5GB for cheaper and has 3GB of video RAM, let alone the GTX580 3GB version. The HD7870 get's very close to its bigger brother in performance with a $100 lower price tag. The HD7750 is the highest performing GPU that doesn't require auxiliary power and it gives decent price/performance. Then you have that thing we loves so much call overclockablity that the whole HD7000 series does amazing at and gets lower power consumption then its competitors and predecessors to boot. We can hope that Nvidia will lower prices with the release of Kepler which would be great, but one we don't know when that will be released and two putting faith in Nvidia to lower prices is like expecting Apple to lower Ultrabook prices with the next MacBook Air.lachen.gif

Why tell me why AMD is the fastest single card on earth $550, what did we ever do to you. Why can't I have an HD7970 for $300 or HD7950 for $200.
Note: The above quote is a joke, no offense to anyone who stated or thinks the HD7000 series is priced high. Still, complaining about it doesn't do any good and it's getting tiring to hear.

I concur, the HD7870 is by far the most impressive card in the HD7000 series family. It costs $350 MSRP and nips at the heels of the HD7950 and GTX580 in performance which both cost $100+ more. With 2GB of video RAM it's just as good as the HD6900 series and has more RAM than the 1.5GB GTX580, 1.28GB GTX570, and 1GB GTX560 Ti. Plus it adds better compute and tessellation of the GCN architecture and super impressive power consumption to boot.

And thus, a week after the GTX 780 is released, the HD 8970 with 48 or 64 ROPs and 2304 SPs at 1GHz is born.

Assuming 8970 is Tenerife XT; Definitely still 32 ROPS. Just more SPs and clockspeed.
