everyone please stop spreading that with quadfire and 144hz/120hz monitors intels are better ...... esp when you dont have one .....
on that note anyone hear from red, starting to get worried about him !
I run a 144hz monitor. When I switched to intel, I liked the 60% more fps across the board that I got out of my HD 7770 (vsync'd 100hz plus blur reduction is a pleasure to have).
Please correct me when I am wrong to say "Generally, if you're unhappy with your minimum FPS for extended periods of time, and your GPU is nowhere near 100% load, then you'd see improvements on intel."
I would like to learn a thing or two here.
Surely I neglected to mention that mantle games will favor AMD, but that doesn't fit within 'general'. Also I'd like to assume that people run drivers and OC settings that work, but maybe I'm too idealistic here.
Also saying 'AMD favors quadfire because of more lanes' is a bit like saying 'a car with 8 wheels is faster than a car with 6 wheels'. May or may not be true, depending on situation.
