HD 7950(1150 mhz) is faster than GTX 760(1280 mhz)
in fact given that a HD 7950 has 3GB VRAM it would be better than a hypothetical HD 9870 which would be a improved Pitcairn. maybe 1920 - 2048 sp running at 1.1 ghz with 256 bit memory at 7 Gbps(224 Gb/s) with 2GB VRAM. with next gen consoles launching very soon 2GB is just not enough at 1080p .
I have to disagree. Take a look at this link
, you'll see the 2GB 760 HAWK is already slightly better than a stock 7970, plus you can further overclock it
. I don't think the 7950 will fully utilize the 3GB (apart from a few games), it's going to run out of juice before that.
In your benchmark the 7950 just edges the 760, i'm fine with losing 2FPS and going with Nvidia. (given that benchmark is 100% correct, as you see techpowerup disagrees)
- i don't want to deal with AMD drivers, have gone through enough **** with SLI, and microsttutering on a single card does not excite me at all (yeah they reduced that with new drivers, but nvidia is much better at this)
-760 is a "newer" card (which will give me better resale value)
-nvidia's better resale value
-always had nvidia cards
-can eventually go SLI, which is so much more efficient than Crossfire. (take in consideration microframes, min FPS etc., not just average FPS)
Not a fanboy, but i prefer nvidia, and from what i see the 7950 and 760 are pretty much equal, so it looks like an easy choice.
