Does a single 5850 equal or perhaps even beat dual 5770's?
I know pricewise they do, just curious. If so, I will go with the more expensive single card, so that in the future I can crossfire with another 58xx series.. for a lower cost to performance ratio in the 'end' so to speak.
Just need to know if it is at 'least' about equal.
A single 5770 is almost equal to a 4890 in terms of raw horse power...so if u cross fire two 5770 theoretically it should beat a 5850.But never expect a 100% performance jump in CF config...You would hardly get a 50% extra performance from 2X5770....Besides crossfiring may lead to CPU bottleneck in games.. .So it would be better if u go for a 5850 than 5770 in CF
Its the same question that I was asking myself a month ago and I went for the 5850 cause performance aint bad and I can play the games I have on 1920x1080 with everything maxed out , but its a whole lot cheaper to buy another 5850 a year from now, than spending your hard earnd $$$ on two 5770 and the next step up is replacing both of them !?
or maybe thats what I want to think cause I just bought one for that reason!
