I want to try the drivers right now!
nice work W1zz hard to believe the amount of performance the driver team managed to pull out of their behinds with this release.
Kinda reminds the the 10.1-10.4 drivers of the HD5000 series, just a big explosion of performance
decent performance numbers for AMD cards yes
Thanks for the review, and congrats to AMD, well done!
It's also really weird for 7950/7870:
HD 7870 significantly faster than GTX 660, HD 7950 faster than GTX 660Ti
But after this review the results turn upside down and GTX 660 overtakes 7870 and GTX 660 Ti - 7950
NV drivers are the same - 306.23 WHQL. The only thing has changed was added one game - WoW, but the results simply can not affect the overall score.
@W1zz, what happened?
Honestly i was so close to sell my 7970 (1250/1700, 1.19v - Accelero ), somehow my sixth sense told me to stop fucking wasting money xD...glad i listened.
Nevertheless i think they saved this kind of performance boost for the right moment (now) which is kinda gay considering the price some of us paid (7970 launch).
they figured out how to finally work with GCN and not VLIW4/5
look again at the game list
also dragon age 2 had a bug that is fixed now
you only copied and pasted what you wanted to see
to me it was the best Move AMD did, stop releasing monthly drivers but wait a few months between releases pretty much
Not too happy with the 7850 scores. Took a hit in several games. That's just unacceptable
so wheres your machine specs
The thing is, if performance improvement for 7870/7950 is 7%, the first one should be on GTX660Ti level, and second one with Boost (which you forget to add) nearly GTX670.
After driver update, the situation is almost the same. NV cards are even better. Such a shame...
Sorry, just updated it
The graphs show 7870 got a 10% boost, the highest in the bunch
well you amounted to nothing in here
I look at it this way, they took their time and focused on the quality actually. so your post is actually useless in these forums period
go be a troll at another forum
Is it wrong I need an explanation? If you can't answer me and have nothing new to say, then you should probablly leave this thread.
read the previous post kiddo
Your post was edited 1min after I send my previous post, kiddo...
No, they focused on performance improvements.
for now im goin to bed, do a lil more thinking before you post on these topics kiddo
Personally id say review this here
Good to hear gains are even bigger with FSAA. I'm using MLAA2 and 4x EQAA with 16x AF in all games.
Congrats on AMD for this but personally i will wait to see what they cut off this time....Usually it takes sometime before the ones that really dig such things up come with the answer.
Is aa really working and IQ is ok?
Not just a bs boost by getting rid of quailty?....if so its a good thing
too bad after this they couldnt focus on the 6 series and 5 series improvements
cowie- W1zzard and cadaveca provide an honest review- cadaveca doesnt get paid to do this. W1zzard im unsure about as of pay but I dont think they take bribes to falsify performance gains from no one.
Because 5/6 series is VLIW architecture. Now, they finally managed how the GCN works.
