Radeon HD 6870 vs MSI Radeon R9 270 Question


Anyone able to set my mind straight on something?

I currently have a "XFX HD 6870 900MHz 1GB GDDR5" but it's been going nuts recently so I've bought a "MSI Radeon R9 270 Gaming 2G".

If I use a GPU comparison site such as this:

It shows the R9 270 as the winner, but not by that much in terms of performance.

However, if I look at this site's 3D Mark 11 results, the R9 270 is almost twice as powerful in terms of performance.

What gives? :??:

    The 270 is definitely much more powerful since it's a 7870 essentially, sites like gpuboss and hwcompare are all synthetic and do not represent real world results
