MSI 7870 OC vs. MSI 6970 Lightning - Page 4

post #31 of 33
If I'm not mistaken the 7870 will smoke the 6970.

this performance comparison is hands on practical one day after day use of 6970 and 7870 for almost 2 years
I had 2X 6870 for almost 1 years, I had 2x 6970 for a year, and then a 7870, and lastly a 7950 just bought

7870 has more powerful computing and more power efficiency and runs much cooler

but depending on the games maybe it has close performance to

6970 : in my experience with just one game DIRT3 the 6970 IS 20-40% better than 7870 when you use Anti Aliasing X8

I think it's game dependent

anyway 7870 is considered a successor of 6870
7970 is the successor of 6970

here is a detailed comparison between 7870 and 6970 depending on the game resolution and AA level

to avoid all this mess I just upgraded to 7950 = best and performs better than 6970 Cross fire and overclocked (because Crossfire performance sucks too and is game dependent)

I got rid of all my previous cards for a good price smile.gif
