    :confused:
    I wasn't talking to you. I also never said anything about the color meaning anything.

    I don't see how your thoughts pertain to anything. I was just showing a guy the die shot of Tahiti. Why do you need to get involved... and what is there to be involved with in the first place?

    Aside form the comparison's listed by W1zzard in his review's of said card's you can check out http://www.gpureview.com/show_cards.php for comparison, i find it to be pretty accurate :eek:

    :confused: You can compare ANY card you want against any other card on that site. Hit the drop down menu/s and select what ever card/s you want and go from there, even give's the option for OC & CF/SLI once you select a card/s :confused:

    Here i did it for you http://www.gpureview.com/show_cards.php?card1=613&card2=677# :)

    Edit: Strange? It was linking with the OC'd clock's, just hit the + tab beside where it list's core speed untill you reach desired speed

    Not much of an "upgarde" is it? I need at least DBL performance before switching, 7970 is almost there (@ stock) but price's are still to high for me, if/when they come down to $300 or less i'll bite otherwise i'm waiting for the "refresh" and the subsequent 89xx card's :eek:

    That's if they do a refresh and not just jump to new arch

    HD7850 performs phenomenally in comparison to the HD6950 and HD6970 in most of the tests but it falls flat on it's face in the Dragon Age II test. What is it about that particular game that the HD7850 struggles so hard with?

    So how do we enable them? :toast:



    How did you get past the 1050mhz core speed limit that is on most of the new HD7850s?

    Haha I was just looking up some reviews.

    But to explain my comment to other people. 8 months ago dir_d said AMD would release a magical driver to boost performance to compete with nvidia. Just a few weeks ago AMD actually did release the driver. Therefore I think that dir_d
    has a foreseeing gift.
