Frame Rating: GTX 660 vs HD 7870, plus HD 7790, HD 7850, GTX 650 Ti BOOST

Recommended Posts

o round out our Frame Rating testing in this interation, we are

looking at more cards further down the product stack in two different

sets. The first comparison will look at the AMD Radeon HD 7870 GHz

Edition and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 graphics cards in both single

and dual-card configurations. Just like we saw with our HD 7970 vs

GTX 680 and our HD 7950 vs GTX 660 Ti testing, evaluating how the GPUs

compare in our new and improved testing methodology in single GPU

configurations is just as important as testing in SLI and CrossFire.

Quote: "I think the takeaway from the current state of Frame Rating is

that while AMD's single GPU graphics cards offer fantastic performance

per dollar, there is a fundamental problem with the CrossFire and

CrossFire + Eyefinity technology that needs to be addressed by AMD.

Even though there is still much research to be done on the subject of

the full effect of the results and the discrepancies we are seeing in

our CrossFire results, the fact is that something is fundamentally

different between CrossFire and SLI, and in my hands on time with

graphics cards over many years and over the last 18 months with this

capture capability, NVIDIA is doing multi-GPU better."
