I am about to buy a rebranded 7970 for $300 in a couple weeks.

guess gpu tech isn't moving as fast as we'd like


Apparently, benchmarks have the R9 280X literally at 7970 performance. Don't quote me on that, though.


Isn't that because the 280X is literally a 7970?

How much better is a 7970 than this 7950? I may just get this instead if it's not a big difference in performance, since it's quite a bit cheaper.

Yes. It's a ghz edition with a slightly slower clock speed.
