Name one game that uses 2GB of VRAM? Even if you factor in SSAA (which effectively multiples the resolution), you won't be maxing out the VRAM for a long time.

The highest VRAM usage I have seen on my 7950 was in Bioshock Infinite, max settings @ 1080p it used 1.2GB VRAM.

Notice I said future games. Next-gen games ( Starting with The Division and possibly The Witcher 3 ) will definitely make use of the 8GB ram available on the next-gen consoles.

And honestly.. that's the same kind of mentality people had when 1GB was a lot.

As for one game that uses 2GB of vram - Skyrim with texture mods. Easily 2gb+

The sapphire 7950 was $250 the other day, and yes I'd get that over a 760 any day.

Lots of comments, I like that. I thought "~" signified better than or equal to or around. Either way, I'd still go with a 760 if it was open box, I have no preference with either AMD or nvidia. I look at price/performance. I got my 7950 newegg open box, $218 total. No reason to upgrade. If I find a 760 open box for ~200, I'd grab it. The PC 7950 3gb costs 270 before rebate, 250 after. This also happens to be the cheapest 7950 you can get, why? It runs friggin hot, I know this first hand. The next cheapest is $300. Only reason I said I'd grab a 760, price for performance. My powercolor 7950 handily ate up my Evga 660ti 3gb, so eBay it went. This is the most powerful gpu I ever had

I'm an AMD fanboy, but I can admit when Intel and NVidia are better.


You do realize that Anandtech ALWAYS (without failure) has different results than any other source and real life experience?

Where have you been? BF3 cranked to max can easily hit 1500MB in gameplay, and that's not even a "new" game. Don't you think that there will be 2GB of vram being used very soon?

Before you start ganging up on him, consider doing your research. Cut the bias, its getting disgusting seeing it all over this website.

HardOCP's MSI GTX 760 vs HD 7950 Boost Benchmarks

Tom's Hardware GTX 760 vs HD 7950 Boost Benchmarks

Guru 3D's GTX 760 vs HD 7950 Boost Benchmarks

TechPowerUp's GTX 760 vs HD 7950 (non-Boost, i.e. non-factory OC'd)

Do I need to link any more? Its not just Anandtech. Almost every other website out their confirms Anandtech's review. Do your research next time.


Thanks.

Most of site reviews of gtx 760 they didn't actually overclock amd 7950 to it's maximum potential they only comparing 7950 boost feature with OC GTX gtx 760.

if you do intend to buy amd 7950 every single of the cards can Easily overclockable to 1100 core mhz with out voltage bump, Don't forget amd 7950 graphic card can go above up to 1200 core if use voltage bump.

here is decent fair comparison between amd 7950 oc at 1100mhz vs gtx 760 oc.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dmGWyAyO9mc

gtx 760 and amd 7950 both very decent graphic card for value. I think just 7950 is better investment since it has superior OC performance.

Yes they are both great cards and I'm very happy with my 7950. However, for the current prices the 760 is a better value. $249 vs $299 and the 760 uses almost 100w less than the 7950, not to mention actually beats it in several games. For the money, the 760 is the better buy.

If you're going to spend $300+, get the 7970 as you can find them on sale very frequently lately.







Summary: Cheaper, more efficient, and faster.
