I am looking to upgrade my pc in the graphics department and I just wanted to know if I should crossfire my Radeon 7850 or if I should wait for the newcoming AMD 9000 series? I am just looking for your guy's opinions.
In general a single more powerful card is better since you don't get micro stutter and just as good fps.
So you could wait for the new 9xxx but is it suitable for your current system ?
So, you currently own a 7850?
I wouldn't crossfire it. The next gen is rumored to be Pretty nice.
Is the 7850 fulfilling your gaming needs or do you desire MOAR!?
buying a second 7850 will grant you almost double the framerate (depending on your cpu) and you won't have to wait around.
Waiting around you'll get your hands on a better piece of technology.
Thanks for the quick responding, but do you guys have any idea when the 9xxx series will come out?
It will not grant double the performance,xfire doesn't work like that :)
Most of the rumors say October 2013 for the new gen release date.
It's all up in the air right now and it's all rumor.
If i were to make an eduacated guess i'd say sometime in Q4 or later.
Okay, I guess I'll just wait and see what happens in October for the new gen gpu's thanks.
It does work like that. Technology has come a long way.
It will not 100% give you double your fps but it will come very close because reasons with optimizations and everything else.
