Can still play Far Cry 4 with maximum settings, minus Anti-Aliasing (turned off) at 2560x1080 and average about 60-70 fps I think.

Are they the default cooler version or does it have a cooler from Gigabyte/MSI/Other?

It's a couple of Asus DirectCU-II coolers. I should mention, the framerate I'm getting in Far Cry 4 with those settings is also a result of some CPU & GPU overclocking. Never tested the fps I'd get with factory clock 4670k, but with un-overclocked GPU I'd get about 8 less fps.

if Far Cry 4 worked well with AMD cards, I'd be pushing that as well :bigsmile_face:

 

 

But alas...it doesn't.

I'll wait happily for Ubisoft to release a patch to sort out the stuttering experienced by ATi card users there. It seems, Far Cry 4, like Crysis (the original Crysis which came out in 2007) might be a memory bandwidth-hungry game. If that is the case, ATi cards will have the edge on NVidia cards there.

Went WTF when I looked at that benchmark -- until I realized the resolution they tested at was 2560x1600. I just play at 1080p. :p 

 

My sister's GTX770 could run FC4 at Ultra with a smooth 50+ FPS average. Jealous as f'k.

You just made me nostalgia so hard

 

 

It's been such a long time since I heard the name ATi

 

Back when AMD did the re-organization, I thought my world was blown apart. AMD graphics card? AMD Radeon? It sounds way too dayum foreign to me. It doesn't stick!

 

ATi Radeon is DA NAME!

 

But soon....the name was lost and now I'm comfortable with AMD Radeon ____. Wow, what a change its been.

 

 

Goodnight sweet prince. ATi, I'm proud to have been one of the last buyers of your branded cards with the 5xxx.

Well they also have a 1680x1050 and 1920x1200 benchmarks there if you're interested.

Haha I'm also pretty comfortable with saying 'AMD Radeon' now, but I still think 'ATi Radeon' sounds more... right.

 

I'm also proud to have use their last 2 generation, the HD4xxx and 5xxx series. I was originally going to go for the HD7970 when building this PC about 1.5 year ago, but since the 670 were much cheaper here following the release of 760 I was forced to put my sense before my preference.

 

 

 

PS: In case if anyone is interested, Tom's Hardware releases a VGA hierarchy chart every month, IMO quite helpful to take a glimpse at if you're planning on upgrading. November, 2014 VGA hierarchy chart here: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107-7.html

Yeah, ATi Radeon still sounds more right of course.

 

But guess what? AMD Radeon has been a thing for about half the lifespan of the term ATi Radeon.

 

ATi Radeon phrase was in use from 2000 to 2009 (5xxx series) so 9 years

AMD Radeon was from 2009+ to current, so 5 years.

 

 

However, ATi Radeon HD was only used from 2006 to 2009 (so 3 years). ATi Radeon without the HD was from 2000 to 2006.(so 6 years)

 

AMD Radeon HD was used from the 6xxx to 7xxx series (1.5 years from 2011 to the last card being only a single card in 2013) AMD Radeon without the HD was from then 2013 onwards.

 

 

It's nice to put naming schemes in perspective :)

I remember coveting the X1950XTX very much on its time... Of course, HD prefix sounds more sophisticated (at least to me), but IMO they should have kept the nomenclatures they used for the HD2xxx series. 'HD7900 XT' sounds quite good, doesn't it? :D

Yeah but then they decided that there be WAYY too many useless letters in that stuff :wink_face:
