How much of a gain, if any, would I see in going to a 7850 from my 560Ti ?

Need to exchange my 560Ti and I can get a 7850 TW FR III for almost the same money, but a 7870 TW FR III costs me around 140$ more..
I'm currently only gaming on a single 1080p monitor and I've got 2x 1600x1200 monitors for extras, don't plan on going for eyefinity, but later down the line I want to get a 1920x1200 monitor and use the 2001FP's next to that in landscape, then hopefully waaaay later, get a 2560x1600 monitor and use the 2001FP's in portrait next to it..

So basically.. Will I see any increase in gaming at 1080p res in going from 560Ti to 7850 or should I go for a 7870 to get a real boost? tongue.gif

It will only be a boost once you overclock the 7850, they scale really good on overclocks.
Stock its about the same as a GTX560ti 2GB / 6950 2GB.

OK we need 12.4 ASAP !

Getting HD7850 to 1200/1500 for 24/7 is no-brainer. At this speed its faster than GTX580. True value for money. thumb.gif
post #456 of 4099
Here's my validation, just got the card about an hour ago. With a preliminary overclock of 1150/1300 on stock voltage, I scored P7062. I am using 12.4 preview drivers as well. ASIC quality was 84.5%, is that good compared to the average?

Just a warning to people using Z68 and Virtu, I was getting weird artifacts on the desktop until I disabled it. Is this something anyone else has encountered/fixed?

Anyone have any recommendations on what would be a max voltage to run this beast at on a regular basis?

I maxed the memory frequency in CCC at 1450Mhz. The core is stuck at 1200Mhz with default voltage. The memory can go a lot higher, but at this time I haven't upgraded to the beta MSI Afterburner.

Question is will there be significant gains in gaming from boosting the memory further? Is it worth it to push further, because I really hate testing for stability. Thanks.

84.5 % seems to be the mid to high end of scoring so far.

I have Virtu disabled anyway so not exactly sure on that.

I believe someone mentioned 1.3V but I could be mistaken.

http://www.guru3d.com/article/radeon-hd-7870-overclock-guide/2

Those guys went to 1.3 on AB.

Also, where are the preview drivers available from? I would like to see if there is any difference in texture quality.
