I have 2 radeon 6970s 2 of them are supposed to equal 1 radeon 7970 ( supposedly) ..... well according to some tests we did that dosent hold true! The 7970 was beat up a little bit lol-well actually it was trashed by at least 45 fps if not more! If u need proof just send me an im id be happy to provide u with my half of the test results, again iam not saying ANYTHING negative ON BEHLAF OF THE 7970 its a champ card no matter how u look at it! The older gen cards still have some fight left in them as well lol

yea i would love to do that but im trying to keep to single gpu atm until i finish my full gaming rig which is in idea stage atm cuz the mobo im using atm ent to good with two gpu's i've noticed frown.gif

Not too sure about the 9 series stuff, haven't actually heard about that...
However, about the 6870s, I would keep it. I mean the 6870 crossfired give pretty good performance, I'm quite sure you can play most AAA titles at high settings at 1080p, not maxing it out, but deff at good quality. I mean the performance increase won't be too amazing as 2 6870s tend to have around the same performance as a 7950. Not even a 7970 can max out certain games at 1080p and have decent FPS. Crysis 3 is deff a fps killer with all those post processing stuff.

Crysis 3 is way more demanding than crysis 1 and 2. AMD will surely release something later this year or early next year. If i were you I would hold up on those 6870s, they are still very good, wait for something new or go nvidia with the 700 series

I havent played crysis 3, so u guys are saying 1 7970 cannot max out crysis 3 and get 45/60 fps?.....not a good thing! Iam just curious what kind of fps does it get in crysis? ... Last crysis i played was part 2 & i had all the texture and dx 11 dowmloads and with my crossfired 6570s i was in the 60fps zone almost %90 of the time! Could be that i was playing on a 1366x768 resolution monitor not sure? .... Iam curipus to try the new one hopefully when prices fall a little bit more ill pick it up.

Yes a 7970 ghz is at an average of 40-45 fps in Crysis 3, for me maxed is 60fps. At 2560 x 1600, the 7970 ghz is at 30fps
