How is a 4870x2 for 720p gaming? - Page 2

post #11 of 18

Anyone know why my 5850 DESTROYS my friends 7770?

7770


My 5850 at 775mhz

DX10


DX9 (same as 7770 result)


GTX 480 for a more refined comparison


Now i was convinced that the 7770 is about the same as the 5850? maybe even a bit faster?

Actually its not surprising that an 5850 beats an 7770 as if I recall correctly the 7770 is pretty much just an higher clocked die shrink of the 5770.

The 5850 still benches higher then the 7770. Also you might be getting smoother frame rates because you have a better CPU.

When i went from my phenom II with a 580 to my i7 with a 580, my frames improved significantly.

What CPU is your friend running?

Phenom II at 3.8ghz, my 2500k is at 4.5ghz.

There is the issue. You have a stronger card, on top of a CPU that can keep the video card fed.

That says it all then. That's leaps and bounds above what his CPU can feed.

EDIT: I remember using my XFX 4870X2 (Still have it), but it died, sadly. I remember tri-firing it with a 4870 1GB, and man i felt so boss with it. Scaling was great and stutter was barely there. If it still worked, I'd probably look to buy another system with an i5-2500k, put it up to 4.5Ghz and pop the cards in and sell it on or keep it as a backup.

Crap.... i guess i should research deeper in future, the card is roughly 18% ahead... i guess the rest is the CPU then.





I am quite pleased with this card even more now i know that, i really thought it was literally a 7770 o.0

Is your 5850 reference? For over a year I was running 2 reference 5850's in crossfire. If you really want to have some fun, you can do what I did and flash the ASUS bios for the reference 5850, which has unlocked voltage. Both of my 5850's topped out at 1200mhz memory, while one was stable at 910mhz core with 1.25V and the other was 870mhz core at 1.25V. I flashed them both to 860mhz core and 1150mhz memory at 1.2V and ran them like that for over a year, while bitcoin/litecoin/feathercoin/ect mining during the day when I was at work. They are awesome cards and I only upgraded because I wanted a 1440p monitor and 1gb ram wasn't going to cut it.
