Upgrade Recommendations - Page 3

post #21 of 22
the 780 is the same generation as the 7970, though it is a faster card. 7970 cf should be marginally better than 670sli, at least according to this guy. http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1709600

In particular is should pound on BF4 because it has mantle, which BF4 utilizes. With 7970 cf your bottleneck will be processor not card.

The 7970 's competitor is the 680. Both came out roughly the same time. The 680 was updated and made more efficient and rebadged as the 770. The 780 came out this year, while the 7970 came out 2+ years ago. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/770?vs=830 even though this link says kinda the same thing. Used single cards because they didn't have a 7970 HD CF option from the drop down. IF you use the same site and compare the 780 to 7970 its a at times a 40 fps gain for the 780.
