HD 7850 vs gtx 570 - Page 2

post #11 of 32
Performance per watt on the 7850 is unbelievable. Hell, you can crossfire them on a 500 watt power supply! That would make it hard to pass up for me but, there is something about having a big juicy card i.e. GTX570.

very interesting post, because I'm in the same situation
The 7870 is more expansive than the 570. But, the 7870 consumes less power and produces less heat.
Performance looks like the same (3d guru)

Go with 7850. Cheaper and has 2gb of RAM. OC it to make it on par with 570.

7850 should be compared to real competitor something like GTX 660 ..

GTX 570 or HD 7850 is still strong choice both of them. Both are strong at gaming performance.

but im positive 7850 will surpass stock 570 easly, if overclocked.

I've been looking at the 7850/7870 pretty hard this week myself. Pretty attractive at its price point.

I'd also like to point out that this is a misconception. This was ONLY the case with 4xxx series cards, and that was quite a while ago. The only thing that takes a hit is the memory bandwidth because the cards need to be mirrored, a 7870+7850 will nearly always be faster than 7850x2 assuming the drivers work properly (don't hold your breath).

non OC version (sapphire one) of HD 7870 is around 80-100$ more than the OCed version of HD 7850...plus i had a long discussion with others about whether getting i5 2500k or bulldozer as i5 seems to be expensive as well...so my choice is, whether buy a good card now or good cpu now.

GPU now and CPU later since it would run your games better at least until you have enough $$ for a new CPU thumb.gif

but the problem is, the build i'm making, it has nothing in it so i'll be needing a CPU at this time as well. It's not an upgrade but rather building from scratch tongue.gif

Nvm. I misread what you wrote.
