AMD Radeon HD 7870 And 7850 Review: Pitcairn Gets Benchmarked

Benchmark Results: GTA IV

Grand Theft Auto IV used to be a regular staple in our benchmark suite. A lot of folks still enjoy seeing it, though this console port scales pretty terribly.

As expected, then, the game runs fairly squarely into a wall at 1920x1080. Increasing the resolution to 2560x1440 helps put a little distance between the various contenders, and we see the Radeon HD 6950 1 GB outperform the 2 GB Radeon HD 7850.

    The Radeon HD 7800s don’t do particularly well in World of Warcraft, finishing behind their respective predecessors, albeit just slightly. More importantly, they succumb to the comparable GeForce cards they’ve been matching pace with up until now.


    WoW favours Nvidia hardware over ATi, its always been this way.

  • still no absolute reason to change from my 5870... come on amd thats 2 generations of cards and neither have given a significant enough increase to warrant a replacement.

    That's the problem with annoying bots like fufuss.. they can't see benchmark graphs.
