So after many years as an Nvidia faithful, I have sold my 480s and got me an XFX HD 7950. This will be the first Radeon card I have owned since I got a Radeon 9550 back in I believe 2008. I plan on getting a second one to crossfire later on. The card should arrive later today. I'm excited for the switch and looking forward to great performance with Mantle and the next generation of games!

Suck it ExoLance. No one wants to hear about your shenanigans, or ridiculous FPS gains.

*insert jealousy*

So I got the chance to hook my PC up to my bigger TV and the card performs better at 1080p. I get between 45-50 FPS in Crysis 3 with AA off and anywhere from 55-60+ FPS in Tomb Raider (with TressFX enabled) w/out AA. Needless to say I am very pleased with my purchase :)

Doesn't sli 480's outperform a single 7950 though?
I know they put out a lot of heat in the process but right now isn't it sort of a downgrade in straight performance?

Maybe a reference 7950 but mine is factory OCed and has been giving me better performance than what I had with the 480s. Each 480 had 1.5GB of VRAM so I had a total of 3, but this card has 3GB on it's own plus it also has a 384 bit bus like the 480s did. I have noticed about a 15-20 FPS increase in my games and that number will skyrocket once I get a second one cause these scale really well, plus running mantle (hopefully if it works as good as they say it will)
