Depends on the resolution. A 7950 can probably max everything out at 1080p, at 1600p, I would expect that you would need two 7950s, at triple 1600p, triple 7970s would probably be necessary, and at 5x1600p I doubt you can max all modern games out, even with 4 7970s.

GPU folding is really inefficient anyway; I get the same performance out of my 100W CPU as my 250W graphics card.

They have been working on fixing it for years...haha...

Just like they are suppose to be fixing the issue with Kepler GPU's and having to use the client-type beta tags in the settings....sigh...

Sometimes the 670 might even surpass the 7970 depending on the game. Then again I haven't checked out AMDs benchmarks since the newest drivers came out. Still, Nvidia has a reputation of having more reliable drivers, and also of getting drivers out the door much faster to support new games than AMD does.

Whaaaat? Are you mad? Have you been living in a cave or something? AMD is currently not only cheaper but it is also better, the 7970 is definitely better than the 670 and the 680 and even the 7950 when overclocked can reach the 680 speeds in games.. The AMD cards this gen are better Performers, have better drivers, overclock better and are cheaper.. The nvidia drivers have been failing lately..

Well someone is mad lol.

I did use NVidia cards back when 8800GTS was insanely good value for money, and 6600GT before that, and 4600 Ti before that.
But then came the HD series ATI cards, went from 3870 to 4870 to 7950 and then to Crossfire 7950.

HD7970 is equal and/or better more or less than the GTX680 and costs a less.
HD7950 is equal and/or better more or less than the GTX670 and costs a less.

660Ti costs around the same as HD7950 and it is worse.

For some reason the NVidia cards do seem to be favored in BF3 and 3DMark11 which I can't really explain but every other game is basicly faster on the ATI cards.

Oh, and I am not a fanboy or anything, I simply buy what is good value for money.
I am infact thinking of trading my Crossfire set for GTX670+some cash so I can try out the no-latency hack for my monitor and so I can try VirtuMVP because it doesn't work with Crossfire.

The new AMD drivers increased the performance at the cost of stutter. The 7970 isn't really better than the 680, but it is cheaper for a very similar performance.

Just got a 7950 last week, I have tried it in Metro 2033, Sleeping Dogs (with high res textures dlc), and Far Cry 3, and it maxes them all out for my setup, 60hz/1080p monitor. Using a q6600 at 3.2, and only seeing a slight bottleneck in FC3. Fps never dips below 40, using dynamic vsync, and smaa at ultra with radeonpro.
