**NOTE: AVG 6-12% FPS IMPACT RECORDING w/XSPLIT & MSI AFTERBURNER, AS IS THE CASE SEEN HERE**
A quick performance look @ the slightly Overclocked (2x) Crossfire-X Sapphire Dual-X R7950 Boost Edition 3GB GPU's, PART 1 of 2 is a Simple GPU quick (DX11) Benchmark w/Some Gameplay Demo. PART #2 Includes 10 LATEST GAMEPLAY TITLES (Testing DX11-DX12-VULKAN API) in 10 GAMES & @ 1080p & 1440p -- Yes, these bad boys still do 2K with ease! as a Single GPU in & then a little gameplay demo. Why these cards? Simple, they're relatively cheap (even in the current Mining Climate & Price Hikes) and if your not "Vet" or been away of PC technology or better yet, if your relatively new to tech and have never really taken a look at the older ((But still relevant)) AMD/NVIDIA Cards, then I hope by seeing this you'll gain different outlook on them. The 7950/7970 (later became the R9-280 / 280X) have huge potential, especially Value for Money or Price to Performance ratio (especially for those Bargain / Budget Conscience buyers) where you can get a solid gaming experience, get MORE for LESS & much more. Especially when you find out how STILL IN 2018 they've only gotten FASTER...yes...FASTER, but also the huge Flexability to Extract even more Performance, which means more FPS! Simply put, just 1 of these puppies slightly OCd is on par & in most titles even exceed the levels of the 1050 Ti. Anyways, for this Demo CROSSFIRE is enabled and even though I can MAX OC each one SUCCESSFULLY (100% Stable + 24/7 Use) @ 1200 MHz Core / 1500 MHz Memory (Stock: 900 Core / 1250 Mem) -- I Settled @ a range that a typical moderate Overclocker would be more comfortable with in terms of not pushing them to hard, while keeping great Temps & Low fan noise. So we did 1050 Core / 1400 Mem | #ROTR #BENCHMARK Rise of the Tomb Raider is set @ 1080p FOR VIDEO #1 / VIDEO #2 @ 1440p - HIGH PREESET (PUREHAIR OFF) - Using MSI Afterburner to capture the data & gameplay but also show the FULL SYSTEM Specs, Clocks, etc. on screen to validate what I'm saying. Read on for more detailed insights on these GPUs, What's planned & More. Hope you enjoy this 2018 REVISIT Bench+Gameplay proof of XFIRE Sapphire DX 7950 3GB OC GPU's!
These GPUs never cease to amaze me over the years. It's one BIG advantage of AMDs "GCN" TECHNOLOGY & how even in 2018 you get even BETTER Performance vs when Launched! Look, I can go on and on about the benefits, especially for all of us enthusiasts, modders & tweakers who understand "WHAT" is even possible considering how close AMD architecture is over years, especially the HD 7xxx & R9 2XX series..... much like the RX-4XX & 5XX on the top end cards like these. What do I mean? And, how you can get even more performance out there cards that really adhere to the saying "Future Proofing" ... And no I'm not only talking about Overclocking, but Advanced Tweaks, especially when u have Multi-vBios GPUs where you can clearly "Flash" a newer/better Bios. Example being, the 7950's successfully flash to an R9-280X! With that flash the cards have more OC headroom achieving a 1200 Mhz Core Clock and 1600 MHz (6000 QDR) on the Memory! Stock is 900 MHz Core, 1250 MHz Mem. So essentially your getting a FREE Upgrade & even more FREE Performance as a whole! I have Multi Gameplay & Comparison videos coming out on these cards where we look at the overall performance using the driver's they had when launched and contrast that to the new Addrenaline drivers out now...Wow, crazy how much of a boost ALONE you get there! Also we compare vs Nvidias competition then vs now to. And only then do u really appreciate how well AMD drivers mature and get stronger, while Nvidia doesn't (Sadly, cuz I love AMD & Nvidia Equally). I know it's a ton to take in so look forward to an actual 2018 High End but Budget oriented build with these GPUs including the process I took to get even more performance flashing them to R9-280X & the Overclocking you can expect, but also compare vs RX 480 and others! Speaking of the RX 480, I also am featuring a FREE UPGRADE guide to the RX 580 via Flashing the Card too and compare the too after! Make sure to Sub, Like/Dislike, Comment & Share if u can, it really helps a ton to be able to show you other possibilities to save you money while not sacrificing performance doing so.
This ROTR is focused on the CrossfireX 7950s (Not MAX OC'd or Flashed 280X vBios) and just how tough they are in 2018!
