The 7970m is roughly equal to a 7850. That's not going to max every game. Not at playable framerates anyway.


Whats your definition of a playable framerate?


30 is playable. but not maxxing. maxxing would 60@1080p. and even then some of the more turbo-nerds will say that 60 isn't maxxing, and you must be playing at 120@1440p to be maxxing.



LoL. I would be fine then since all the games I play get 40+ at 1080p

I don't recall saying 40 was maxxing.

Then your definition of 'max' isn't 'max', it's pretty much as simple as that. Your GPU is roughly as powerful as the PS4's which struggles with 1080/30FPS, let alone at high/max settings.

Nope I just got done doing a Just Cause 2 benchmark and everything was maxed out at 1080p and I got 69 average frames per a second buddy

There is no definition of "max". If you're happy with your framerates and settings, good for you :)

Congrats on being able to run a 3 year old console port? You also can't max that game regardless because it has nvidia exclusive CUDA features. Not even PhysX so you can't just run it on your CPU either. That's like saying a 7970 does better than a Titan in the Mafia 2 benchmark, it might get higher FPS but the Titan is crunching three times as many number to push features the 7970 isn't even capable of. Not to say PhysX/CUDA makes nvidia inherently better but in this particular situation it makes a big difference.
