7950 3 way crossfire, vs 7970 x2

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
what would you guys prefer, i know that 3 way crossfire scales really good, would it perform better then 2 way crossfire 7970 ?
thought ideas?
post #2 of 4
i ran across this article looking for benchmarks:
Radeon HD 7950 Crossfire review 2 and 3-way
most games i looked at showed the 7950x3 was equal to or ~10% better than the 7970x2 setup. there were a few games that didn't like the x3 setup but considering the article is over a year old i would think those issues are resolved.
since the power consumption is the same and IIRC from an older toms hardware guide article, having a third card resolves a lot of any micro stuttering issues, i'd go for the 7950x3 setup.

If looking for new why not try it? I would if my case would fit it. Be shure to let us know what results you get.
