With the two-78xx models, the current graphics card lineup based on the 28nm manufacturing technology, "Advanced Micro Devices" is practically completed, only the double-core-top model Radeon HD 7990 should be maintained for a while. With expected date of final price as AMD placed the cards where they belong on the performance here, as initial tests have now shown.
"Today's" graphics cards have shaders *, computing units (CUs), load-and-store units, Texture Mapping Units (TMUs) and raster operation processors. That's why they dominate such a great bunch things like SSAA, anisotropic filtering, anti-aliasing and "Zero Power Core" and can DirectX 10 and 11 commands to be addressed ... but who cares? What would like to know the majority of customers arrive at what point in an overall top list the object of desire would be justified and, above all, to the purchase or investment.
Although, it will be distributed widely available in various versions and Radeon HD78xx from various manufacturers had, both testers are not satisfied with the reference design , which generally give the fans louder and not quite as good fuel economy. However, the two eventually come to the same conclusion, although the colleague was somewhat critical of the computer base with the supposed savings in power consumption.
Where "exactly" would rank the two models within a Toplist, but obviously not to be judged as good, which is not least due to the large selection in this price segment. "Under load", or so judges HardwareLuxx Andreas Schilling, "they find themselves depending on their performance between the high-end graphics cards of the previous generation again." The computer base yet noticed the rather large gap in performance of the recently-introduced Radeon HD 7770 to the next larger HD7850, which is currently still on the top models of the older generation (Radeon HD68xx will bridge ), which is why they would expect a further intermediate model.
