AMD Radeon HD 7870 And 7850 Review: Pitcairn Gets Benchmarked

Benchmark Results: Batman: Arkham Asylum

While this game’s DirectX 11 code path was very buggy when it launched, a patch recently fixed the most egregious problems.

Despite fairly predictable performance numbers at 1920x1080, selecting extreme detail settings and a 2560x1440 resolution destroys the 7800 series’ results. The significance of that outcome is minimal, though, since none of our contenders yield playable frame rates.

    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.
