Realistically, how should the higher end 8000 series like the 8870, 8995, and 8970 perform to their respective 7000 series equivalent? I've been planning my build for quite some time, and after much research I have concluded that the 7970 will be best for me with a 1440p screen. Should I just wait? As of right now, I don't even have a gaming rig.
This is a new iteration of the previous architecture. Not a new architecture. So in general better power and performance is expected but not a Massive leap. probably higher stock clocks since they had so much headroom with the 7xxxs.
This is a wild ass guess but 15-25% improvement? Thoughts anyone?
(Now just 6 months to a year till nvidia releases something, while the fan boys wear tin fool hats and swear they.have a killer GPU they dont release because AMD sucks) (couldn't help myself last year was tooooo funny. No flame intended
