The more I look at benchmarks, the more drool falls out of my mouth at how good of a deal I got for $216.
Yeah yeah. I'm just too happy right now so I keep saying the same schiit, below is just schiit I typed out due to my own hype. You guys are probably tired of me saying the same schiit. But whatever.
PC Benchmark scores and rant (Click to show)
AMD R9 270 is the direct rebrand of the 7870 and is $180-$210 each
AMD 7870 Crossfire is about 15-25% faster than a single Reference 7970 (if crossfire works that is for the game and all of CFx issues blah blah and efficency blah)
AMD R9 280x is direct rebrand of AMD 7970 and is $320-$340.
Nvidia GTX 770 is $400-$420 (sales at $350-$380 after MIR right now) is approx the performance of a 7870 CFx(if CFx works, and works 'perfectly' and well optomized and everything)(yes, vram mirroring, and high resz. I only have 1080p anyway)
Granted, single cards are much better than Crossfires. But considering I paid about the same price I would have if I got the R9 270/x, I'm dayum happy
Still no CFx in my system though :(
Huge ordering and sales from Newegg means my order(new motherboard and 6pin pcie adapter) only just got packaged and shipped (5-6 days after I ordered it). My CFx bridge isn't here yet either after that idiot sent me an Nvidia SLI bridge. Bought a new one already though. Should be here tuesday
