Query regarding crossfire

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
I have a sapphire 7970 dual-x card,I am thinking of adding a 7950 in xfire.Should I sell my existing 7970 and get 2 7950's or should I keep my 7970 and xfire it with a new 7950.I am running an oce'd i5 3570k cpu.Will corsair hx 750 be able to handle my system load? I had thought of selling my 7970 initially and going for a 780, but it's $900 in my country which I cannot afford.

Thats a lie misinformation. First a 7950 to match a 7970 needs 100 mhz more. Second the 7970 clock higher than the 7950. In an extremely rare situations you will see a 7950 to clock similar to a 7970.

is that so? I AM ABOUT TO TAKE YOU TO SCHOOL SON!!!

okay so

7970 = SAPPHIRE (first one on newegg)
Core Clock: 950MHz
Boost Clock: 1000MHz
2048 Stream Processors
3GB 384-bit GDDR5
PCI Express 3.0 x16

7950=SAPPHIRE (off newegg)
Core Clock: 850MHz
Boost Clock: 925MHz
1792 Stream Processors
3GB 384-bit GDDR5
PCI Express 3.0 x16


okay so in this case STOCK 7970 beats the 7950 (duh common sense)
but the 7970's will always have more steam possessors


NOW ! I have 3 7950's and they are on air (not water AIR!) I have the water blocks for them but want my
900D first xD so I can put them on and go higher over clock


back to the point these are my cards
PowerColor AX7950 3GBD5-2DHV4 Radeon HD 7950 Boost State 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
and this is my over clock on all of them @ STOCK VOLTAGE !!!!! ( volt is unlocked on this card)




whats that ? so please next time ask for proof before calling some one a lie,
NO MATTER WHAT THE ONLY THING 7970 HAS ON ME IS STEAM POSSESSORS!!!


I REST MY CASE!

FALSE INFORMATION wink.gif



KEEP YOUR HD 7970, and if you can, get another HD 7970.

But if you can't, you can crossfire your HD 7970 to a HD 7950 and it will be the best configuration. Stronger than 2 x HD 7950 for sure.
