http://www.overclock.net/t/1357320/660-ti-or-7950-for-crysis-3/40_40#post_19223726

and I have been saying the entire time the GTX 660 Ti and with nVidia drivers 310 and up,
it will keep an advantage over the HD 7950 @ 1080p.
looks like I'm right still on that, I need to go back and call people out but it's not worth it.
just gonna wait for the GTX 780 and keep it moving.

The big reason behind 660ti being able to keep up with the 7950 is probably because they used the reference 7950, which is clocked very conservatively @800/1250MHz, pretty much nobody buys the reference-design cards, and most of the custom cards, like Sapphire, MSI, Gigabyte, HIS etc are clocked @880-950/1250 out of the box, and @ STOCK are matching the GTX670, not to mention when you start overclocking...

Not wanting to start another 660ti vs 7950 war, just pointing this out.

yeah nobody specifically buys a HD 7950 because a HD 7950 boost is available for the same price. people who buy the HD 7950(800 mhz) buy it for specific needs like unlocked voltage / watercooling because it uses a reference AMD PCB design. and almost everybody knows an overclocked HD 7950 is on par with overclocked GTX 670.

Crytek makes the game; modders make it better thumb.gif The original Crysis wasn't all that impressive until you threw on some texture packs, edited the cvars, and edited the tods for each level. I would suspect the same applies to this game.

I'm interested to see some benchmarks at 5760x1080. If CF 7950s can handle that res (no AA) without capping on the VRAM, I may just upgrade this year instead of waiting for the GTX 7xx/ HD8xxx series. If it's already hitting around 2GB @ 1080p w/4xAA maxed out, I don't think it will. Throw some mods on this game, and you'll be looking at like 25fps on CF 7950s @ 5760x1080.

So we have a AMD "Never Settle 2.0" Bundle game that AMD admitted in a conference call they worked closely with the developers, turns out it have very good AMD multicore scaling and non-existent Intel hyperthreading support(just compare the FPS boost you get going from FX6300 to FX8350(8 FPS) vs 2500K to 2600K(2FPS)). Why am I not suprised rolleyes.gifrolleyes.gifrolleyes.gif

Glad to see Crysis 3 giving GPU's a good kicking.

I'm also glad to see PD chips doing very well, almost makes me regret going with an i5, but then I remember that my rig is mATX and is playing exclusively Skyrim at the moment tongue.gif

Would have been nice to see results with overclocked CPU's as well.

It's nice for a change to have it the other way around, isn't it? thumb.gif

tongue.gif

Perhaps it's Crytek saying to intel 'stop holding the 6 and 8 cores' hostage and in the high end segment and giving us HT as a half-arse replacement. If it was so AMD biased then the 6 core intel's wouldn't be on top, but it's not the case. thumb.gif

This is like Nvidia's TWIMTBP shenanigans, it just so happens amd makes cpu's and gpu's

Well, hmmm.

Looks like I might need to throw the massive power-sucking 6970 leaf-blowers in crossfire back in the setup, as it almost reaches playable levels at 2560x1440...

just saying modern game engines are using eight cores. and with next gen consoles supporting 8 core Jaguar this trend will become more widely prevalent. why should i be hurt ?

Do I smell little bit of sarcasm here? smile.gif

I know it looks suspicious when a 660ti owner posts like you did and a 7950 owner replies like I did smile.gif
