7950 Crossfire or 780 Ti

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Pretty straight forward. I currently have 2 7950's in crossfire. I have an i7 3770k at 4.3 GHz so no bottlenecking. I would like from a performance standpoint and also a Price + performance standpoint. Also keep in mind Microstuttering and games that just don't support crossfire, and that I would like to play at 120 FPS+ because of my 144 Hz monitor. Do I sell my cards or keep them.?Please post your opinion, they will ALL be taken in to account. Thanks. thumb.gif

I went from cf 7950 to a 780 at 1440p, numbers wise bf4 I lost about 30 frames so 80's to 50's with the same settings the nvidia single card did feel smoother though, beyond that a ti should come a lot closer performance wise.

The 780ti is the same as the 7950cfx in performance plus the amd has higher gpgpu performance

If you don't mine, sell your cards while the market is crazy and go 780 TI.

How about other games? I've had a ton of issues with crossfire and AMD drivers. A lot of games also don't support xfire. Is a single card a huge improvement from a crossfire standpoint?

Honestly, you switching over the the 780 ti your computer ill feel like a different machine. I switched in may to a GTX 780 from crossfire 7950's...WHile I lost some performance overall it didn't feel that way but the frames said otherwise. Overall the 780 has been much smoother and less of a headache. Recently I added a second 780 and it has been great. Crossfire is broken and as far as I can see always will be. They said that stuff would be fixed by summer and I have friends that are still complaining about it.

Make the switch now while the cards are HOT and worth some more like some said above. I wish I would have waited. I sold both of mine on craigslist for $450 for the pair IN MAY!! Get the 780ti and you will be VERY happy. Maybe add another one later when the prices go down if need be !thumb.gif

not to many other games I can comment on bioshock infinite felt the same but it remained over 60fps and very rarely dropped under it, beyond that arma 3 still played the same grid 2 runs at a high fps on either setup so it felt the same and batman played better that's just about all i've played on both cards.

Thanks guys! I am trying to sell them on ebay right now but no bids. It gets me excited to see when you say good things about the 780 and the 780 ti. I REALLY want to make the transition to Nvidia and a single card setup, and eventually SLI them. Can't wait to get passed AMD and their low quality drivers and products. Thanks again everyone! Hopefully more people will continue to add to this post smile.gif
