Default Re: Official Radeon 7800 series Review and discussion thread

It actually does better at higher res than the competition, even the 580, so I wouldn't say it's limited or best suited only to that sort of market like the 6800 series was. This is probably thanks to the 2GB VRAM and sharing the same cache setup as Tahiti.

Also for crossfire, I'd be much happier considering two of these than 6800's when they came out and everyone raved about the cfx performance... having 2GB of VRAM makes all the difference! 2x7850 could actually be a better setup than 1 x 7970 for some people.
