Radeon HD 7950 performance?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am going to be upgrading to a 1440p monitor soon, and I have a simple question, which I cant find anywhere (I can only find one for 7950 crossfire)



How will the performance be on a 1440p monitor? With my 5ghz 8350, I can run most games maxed out at 1080p at 45-50 fps like BF4, Metro LL, etc.


How will the performance dip?


Also, I am going to crossfire soon too, but, is it worth it to pay an extra 20 bucks or so to get a 7970 and get better slighty better crossfire results?

I've never tried to run a 1440 monitor. One thing to keep in mind is that your going from 2073600 pixels, to 3686400. Almost double the pixels it has to process.

I don't fully get what you're asking, but crossfire is going to run only as fast as your slowest card. Second, IMO crossfire is not worth the headache. Third, if you do crossfire, maxing out settings/eye-candy on 1440p is going to depend HIGHLY on the game.

Short answer, no you will not be able to max out every game on 1440 by crossfiring two 7950s. Then again, this depends on what framerates you consider playable.

Not really what im asking. And that is not true. Crossfiring a 7950 with a 7970 will not bunker down the 7970's performance. It will run halfway between a crossfire 7950/7970. I have SLI'd and crossfired cards before, I'm not new to this stuff at all, I was looking for a performance estimate on a single GPU 7950 on a 1440p monitor, such as the titles I listed.


Also...A friend of mine has dual 7970's and can max out pretty much everything on 1440p. He gets about the same framerate as I do on 1080p with my rig. Thanks for the answer though!

I understand. Given the performance of the 7950, I was expecting a 20-30% drop in performance on the same settings, which isnt bad. Even if it is more, a crossfire setup or trifire with a 7970 will help.
