total war shogun 2 supports AA
Well, it supports up to 8x multisample anti-aliasing after a patch.
just to me after reading what i had seems AA is broken to an extent. You could always force AA in AVECC,
I need to have a look into this.
even without of its newest catalyst, amd radeon 7970Ghz edition is still the fastest single gpu graphics card right now.
Now should I upgrade, I am currently using CAT 12.8
Well, considering that here in Brazil HD7970 and GTX670 have almost the same price... no doubt about what to get for a new build.
Do you guys know about any review of HD7970 CFX with Catalyst 12.11? Google wasn't so friendly when i searched for it.
i went from 15.9k in 3dmark11 to 16.649k with the new drivers, performace across the board seems to be great. I can post some benchmarks if you want. Lemme know what you wanna see and i'll put them up if i can
Yes, they are that good. I was pretty amazed myself seeing 10+ more FPS all the time.
That would be very, very nice. And also a really cool favor for all the guys (or girls, )out there trying to choose a new graphics card.
After 12.11 Beta 4, i'm leaning towards a Sapphire Dual-X 3GB HD7970.
And those Diamond 7970's are really good looking!
for what it's worth, the 12.11 beta 4 on Windows 8 also has the high 2d clocks. just throwing that out there
considering a 10 FPS increase can mean playable Frame rates (60+) vs bearable frames (45-59) and unbearable (0-44)
Gpu vs Cpu
It was my first time here and my english is not very well, apologize me. I want to congratulation for this analysis and aprove what is saying when you talk for they old card that we are no see the performance. I have a HD 5750 and i dont see the diffirence.
My question is: For my cpu dual core 6550, what kind of video card i need to my cpu. I want to buy a HD7850, do i need to change my old cpu? And there is anywhere in the web to see
which cpu work whit some video card?
Because i play whit the game Guild Wars 2 and when a lot of people are in the battle my video card do is best, an a optain 10 FPS.
Thanks a lot
The GPU will work fine with the your current CPU.
Bare in mind CPU intensive games may exhibit lackluster performance despite the GPU upgrade.
I just re-ran the window experience index. My HD7770 went from a 6.0 score to a 7.7 with this new 12.11 upgrade. Nice!
3D Mark is P4706 3DMarks
Which settings (AF, tesselataion,...) do you use in Heaven 2.0?
I have heaven 2.0. You want me to run it?
I was interested in which settings does TPU use in that bench
because they only state AA. I have Heaven 2 and wanted to compare my 7750 to theirs, so I have to know their settings (at least on 1680x1050)
Probably not, but you should download latest CAP (CAP 12.10).
I underestimated power requirements for Crossfire. I am not going to use 350 watts extra every time I game. That would run me an extra $100 a year on the electric bill. Plus I would have to buy an 850 watt power supply. That's an extra $35 for a good one over the 650 watt Kingwin LZP 650 that is coming to me on Monday. Not worth it. So the pair of used MSI Radeon HD6970's I bought for $390 on Ebay will be resold as soon as the solitary Sapphire Radeon 7950 arrives Tuesday. I'll save a few books get almost the same performance and save bundles on power. I wish I had done my home work in advance. I hate having to sell things on Ebay with taking pictures and haggling with people who no matter how good the price is, try to knock it down further. I am anti-capitalist at heart.
you should try to sell them here too
It is just as bad here selling as on Ebay. You have to supply a picture, which means absolutely nothing about fraud prevention. I woujld rather give my home address and telephone number when joining Tech power Up then having to do these false security measures that really do NOT making a safer place to sell. Any thief could find a picture to duplicate if they did not really have the product to sell. Any body can provide a false name and hand sign it on a picture. I built a life long reputation for being a man of my word. I earned whatever respect I have gotten in life. These false security measures are just like the TSA at the airports . A mega billion dollar industry based on mass fear and deception by the government. I would rather build a bond of trust rather than a world based on fear. No sale here it is more complicated than Ebay. I wanted to sell my 2 GB 6950 Radeon HD for $140 & free shipping here just to give guys a break, but if I have to jump through hoops to do it then it's not worth it to me. I'll sell it for $165 on Ebay plus shipping costs.
