[softpedia]AMD Radeon HD 7000 Southern Islands GPU Code Names Revealed - Page 8

post #71 of 81
Really? Q9xxx series and Q6xxx series are now insufficient? Does anyone have any proof? Some FPS screenies of them with their setup before and after they went i7? I really just want to know!

My q6600 is still fine...


Clock for clock, its within a few FPS...really worth the price of CPU,mobo,etc?

For me personally my Q9650 would need to be swapped out, largely because of my motherboard. I have a p35 system which runs one slot pci-e 1.1 at 16x. IIRC the bandwidth of that slot is half that of pci-e 2.0, which is what a lot of the new cards need. Ive heard a few people state that some of the new gen card, like 5870 and above use all of the 1.1 bandwidth, and probably more.

I cant see upgrading a socket 775 motherboard just for graphics. If I do that much upgrading, ill just do the whole rig at once, and not upgrade it for another 4 years. Something like that.

It depends on the application and also depends on what resolution you are running. It is much more CPU intensive to feed a GPU when you are rendering for a low resolution.

It also depends on if the game is heavily multithreaded and can actually utilize all the cores on a Q6600, the i7 has 4 cores itself of course but if a game is not multithreaded then it depends on single threaded performance and the i7 will win out because each core is faster.

You can get a decent used P45 based mobo for less than 100 bucks shipped.
My Q9650 still got life left in it, sure its not the latest thing, but it keeps my games running smooth.
Probably will upgrade once socket 2011 hits, or bulldozer shows superiority.

I swear these gpu and gaming software companies must be owned by the same company, and they're taking the customers for a wild ride. I mean, didn't the 6990 JUST come out??

I'd be pissed if I just bought a 6990.

Your (as well as many others) E-peen is causing a baby-like tantrum.

*AMD releases 6990*
"i have the latest card, i'm so cool"
*AMD releases its first cards of the next series*
"oh no i no longer have the latest flagship card...i hate amd"

Why do people act like the performance of their flagship card will suddenly plummet with the release of a new series of cards...

Perfect. Once they are release, the 6xxx Series drops in price and I can buy another 6950 for crossfire.

You don't have to buy it. Yeah, technology is moving fast. You don't have to keep up with it, but slowing down tech is not the solution.

What they NEED to do with the 7xxx series is make it all display port ONLY to keep that top slot for a vent only. The cooling difference is amazing. I went from a normal 5870 reference from sapphire to a eyefinity 5870 from sapphire and the card is literally 10c cooler idle and under load. Also keeping the card to a 1 slot could help people when trying to mod a big card like that down into a single slot case when water cooled. Best thing is, If you have two monitors(which most people do) thecrd already comes with 2 dp->DVI adapters so no extra money spent!
