7850 oc > r7 265 > 750ti
HD 7850 OC 1120 core, 1425 mem on 1225mV = r7 265 + saved money MSI 7850 OC edition- after further OC differences pixel rate before oc 28.4 after 35 Texture before 57.6 after 70 Bandwidth before 153.6 after 182 gotta love the 7850, i wonder how well the R7 265 does though with overclocking....
For $145 this card is outstanding! The GTX 750 Ti priced the same at $145 is just a laugh! LOL, And Nvidia still won't budge with the price. The R7 260X performs about the same as the 750Ti, So it's the R7 260X that Nvidia needs to match the 750Ti with in price. Yet they keep insisting it is in the performance of the R7 265, LOL I understand the 750Ti only needs 60 watts to run, That is impressive. But it still does not justify charging people too much money for a underperforming card, The similar performing R7 260X only needs 115 watts to run, A 55 watt difference is not even going to be noticeable unless the PSU is under 400watts or just really cheap.
R7 265 = HD 7850 OC.
