Only Radeons, in fact. And quite rightfully so, their blend rates are less hindered than each of their kepler counterparts:

I just disagree with your reasons. Saying he can play it at max with msaa x4 is complete BS. It will be a stuttery mess. Also, saying he can OC to 1200 is misleading as not all cards do that. I know I owned some.

Realistic he is looking at playing VHQ with SMAA low to no AA. Definitely not ultra as far as we know yet.

Also, we are 2 weeks away from launch. Just cause its a beta does not mean it will change much on release which is a short time away.

For me it came down to one simple fact, performance! I wanted the most amount of horsepower for $390 bucks I had to spend, and 2 x 660 was the only answer. 7950 or 7970 comes no where close to the FPS im getting now. Best money spent.

Seeing as he cant SLI thats why I said 7950.



Funny. Very funny. My atm rig( 4 years old one) can run this game with all high, 8x AF, 2x SMAA smoothy with no stuttering at all. This particular setup is AMD Phenom X4 9650 @ 2,3GHz, 6GB RAM, Radeon HD 6950 2GB. My bro has stock AMD FX-8350, 8GB RAM, Radeon HD 7850 2GB with core @ 1GHz and mem @ 5,9-6GHz and Crysis 3 runs smoothly and with no stuttering at all at any times with all setting very high, 16xAA, 4xSMAA. And this is a FACT, I have eyes so that I can see it when I try it myself. No matter what anyone says here it is a fact that the game runs perfect with both of these setups with the particular graphics settings. This is all after the new beta driver. And I know when a game runs smoothly. I have been a real pc enthusiast for long before many of you were even born. And I have been a real Nvidia fanboy from the beginning of times till AMDs hd 6000 series. Atm I'm being very neutral but AMDs price against performance is just so darn good compared to Nvidia. For example with 7950 you get more processing power than with a GTX670 and the most important thing when thinking just a lil bit of future proof you get 384-bit memo bandwich and 3GB graphics memory.
I have always preferred raw power when it comes to computer parts and that's one of the reasons why I have an AMD GPU atm. Nvidia should lower the price of GTX670 4gb version atleast by 100€ so that they could compete with AMD prices atm. But all of this conversation is about getting a ferrari or a lambo. Both will do just fine for some time and are excellent GPUs. But if you're getting a GPU right now, it is a waste of money to get less than 3GB graphics memory and not to mention that GPUs had 256-bit bandwich a decade ago so it won't hurt you to get a lil bit higher rate on that aswell.

Memory bandwidth? really we still beating that dead horse? Since you mention it can I ask why can a "weak memory bus" like a 66ti beat a 7950 with a 384 bit bus? If bus was that important the 660ti should never catch the higher bus cards in any tests, yet it hangs in there with the bigger bus cards and even beats them in some tests. Nvidia set up the memory bandwidth different than AMD hence why its a lower bit but performs just fine.

For example look at these preliminary results of crysis 3. My GTX 660 stomps your 6950, yet yours has a higher bus why? Hmmm........

Im calling BS that you play the game on max settings with medium SMAA and its 100% smooth. Throw up a fraps benchmark to proove it please. My card wich is better than yours can barely handle those settings so I know fact yours cannot.

Here:


Even at higher resolution my lowely GTX 660 with a smaller bus walks all over your bigger bus 6950

http://hothardware.com/Reviews/NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-660-RoundUp-MSI-ZOTAC-Gigabyte/?page=1


Those screenshots are at a higher res where memory bus plays a big part, yet the 660 consistently does well, and so does the 660TI. The memory bus is not a big of a role as some make it out to be. Ill be awaiting your fraps bench on that 6950. wink.gif

THis is all that really matters >.>

that techspot review was Sept. 12.11 came out Oct, i believe. ok, ok. your 660 and 660ti are so powerful. we believe you.thumb.gif

edit: ops, they are all September.

CAUTION! VERY OFFTOPIC:

Learn to read mate. I never said that my crappy old Phenom with an old 6950 can handle max settings smaa medium. was talkin about lower settings than that with that setup. Maybe the GTX660 beats 6950 in the newest games because 6950 isnt that new a GPU anymore? Kinda last gen maybe? And I wasnt talkin about the memory bandwich of my 6950 card, I was talking about the possibilities of the 7950 and 660 cards in the future about their memory bandwiches and graphics memory etc, for example according that even some of todays games take more than 2GB memory with very high res and all maxed out so that is why I mentioned the bandwiches and GPU memorys since all the nice goodies eat up a lot of both of them and especially in the near future. Even though you bought a cheap card with kinda low bandwich in todays market(and the secret of gtx690 is 512-bit bandwich btw) you shouldn't be so silly and pop up some benchy after benchy. I'm not interested in that. When for example talking about 7950 vs 660 or 660ti or 670 the 7950 is more powerful, "more powerful". The rest is about how the GPU works with the CPU of your computer and in todays market the number one thing is software support which is clearly Nvidias weapon atm. Nvidia beats AMD badly and AMD tries to desperately struggle with the drivers and the overall compatibility with todays games. And By the way, my next purchase will be Nvidia when the "big" kepler arrives to desktop PCs thumb.gif

The source is hardware.frhttp://www.behardware.com/articles/876-7/review-nvidia-geforce-gtx-660-asus-directcu-ii-top-and-sli.html. They are quite reputable for providing observable unbiased data. They have great infrared pictures of loaded video cards to compare heat production as well. You should check them out for good.

Will check it out, thanks for the link +rep

edit.... what did they use to get their numbers though?

Talk about a load of bull right there biggrin.gif

No matter what GPU you had, that AMD CPU wouldn't handle anything properly tongue.gif

CAUTION! EVEN MORE OFFTOPIC BUT I MUST TELL YOU SOMETHING biggrin.gif

Talk about a zero load of BS there, but let's talk about nowadays mainstream intel+nvidia pc gamer boy. AMD has again brought something very dominating to the markets and that is 8-core architecture. Why's the CPU so crappy even if any I7 can't handle the multitask performance and the processing power of 8350 and it is also many times cheaper than some i7 CPUs. Ofc I7 has more powerful single core processing, but that won't matter much longer. Just tell me after 2 years that what I said earlier is BS, I really would love to hear that. Nowadays, consoles tell developers what to do and both of the upcoming consoles have AMD 8-core CPUs running at 1,6GHz/core, do I smell games using atleast 6 cores in the future, hmmmmmmmm? That my dear friends is the future. This ancient single core power whepeee yayayayayay thing settlement will look quite different even as early as Q1 2014, you'll see. I know that almost all of ya would tell me that this is all nonsense and come here with 10000000 benchmarks and blablabla all this and that AMD suxxor intel pwn omgomgomg but I'm not interested in that at all, that just happens to be the mainstream thing atm. And btw if you were talking about my old grandpa phenom, then yea it is crappy biggrin.gif
