cry nigga, cry. Finger your amd butthole.
Hey faggot. No one fucking cares
hey AMD Friends... Stop talk shit with the RX 4xx.... RX-4xx it's an GTX-970 moded but AMD Version... the GTX 1070 AMP Extreme.. is 80% better than GTX 970... I can confirm this benchmark on GPUBOSS because i have test both GC...
