7870+ OutBenched 7970....

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I was benchmarking 7970 OC Edition at 1200/1500, & 7870 Tahiti with FFXIV Benchmark. Oddly enough


7870+ Got 17085 Points (1100//1500)
7970 Got 15222 Points


Anyone with a 7970 Can throw stock benchmark @ High (Laptop) 1920X1080 if they have it on pc still? One of my doubts is that the 7970 got bottlenecked and ran slower then usual.

That's because you're using Final Fantasy for a graphics bench.

Final Fantasy is well known to have a legacy of terrible benchmarks.

I remember the GTX 570 used to score terribly in Final Fantasy 12 or whatever the last PC one was.

Also likely your 7970 isn't stable

the 7870XT died right after with GSOD for good so RMA'ing that for replacement however. Boyfriends 670 benched same as 7970... we switched to stock hit ~14k.

Im only using FFXIV ARR as sole benchmark because I only used it to see how good it was ingame compared to card, and the GPU died before I could run anything else on it. it was crashing on furmark, etc. without exceeding 50C even UC'd.


I still have no logical explanation on the high score, maybe it tried doing the impossible and drew its last breath in process.
