Crossfire 7950s or wait? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Apparently the next AMD GPUs will be announced in September.

The latest driver didn't fix everything. I would wait and see what the 9970 and 9950 look like. At that point you might be able to get another 7950 even cheaper. They won't be replaced that soon.

DX10 also, not only DX11. The next Beta should address DX9 and maybe OpenGL.

mostly within a month.

http://www.hardocp.com/article/2013/08/01/amd_catalyst_138_beta_frame_pacing_crossfire_driver/#.Ugi5oqz3x8E

" AMD is releasing this technology in phases. The driver today, Catalyst 13.8 Beta is Phase 1. In Phase 1 Frame Pacing only works at resolutions up to 2560x1600 on a single display. That's right, Frame Pacing will not work on CrossFire in Eyefinity resolutions in Phase 1. In Phase 1 only games that are DX10 and DX11 are supported, no DX9 games will work with Frame Pacing in Phase 1.

Phase 2 of the driver will come later this month. In Phase 2 CrossFire in Eyefinity resolutions will be supported. There will also be support for DX9 and OGL games in Phase 2. So if you game in Eyefinity, or across multiple displays, or higher resolutions than 2560x1600 then Phase 2 driver is what you will have to wait for. Also, if you want support in DX9 games."

HD 7950s are not going to go out of stock anytime soon. also the AMD Never Settle Forever game bundle is also due this month

"VRZ: Moving on to gaming, what’s next for the Never Settle bundle?

It’s coming in August, and it will be called Never Settle Forever. I can’t yet tell you what the games are. "
