The test were ran using the same test setup and -methodology as earlier. For comparison we had a bunch of older AMD-cards and crossfire-setups, as well as the Gainward GTX 560 Phantom we've reviewed earlier and Gainward GTX 680 Phantom we're about to review very soon!
First up the 3Dmark11 and the Pitcairns are off to an impressive start with the HD 7870 beating the last generation top dog - HD 6970. Actually also the HD 7850 scores better in the performance-preset, but in extreme it's a bit slower than the HD 6970.
Overclocking the HD 7850 improves its score by 13% and the HD 7870's by 12%. It's also impressive to notice how the overclocked HD 7870 actually scores better in the Performance-test than the last-generation HD 6870 Crossfire-setup!
In 3Dmark Vantage it's the same result with the cards flanking the HD 6970.
And in the HWbot the same theme continues. The HD 7850 wedges ahead of the GTX 560 by 10%, HD 6870 by 15,5% and HD 6850 by a massive 42,5%. Still, the most impressive thing for me is how both cards, when overclocked, win the HD 6970.
