Bullsh!t comparison. Compare with frame rate instead of specs? This site will do anything to make Nvidia win. Even if many commenters here will be pissed because the better card lost, this site has the F*CKING BALLS to make AMD look bad.
wow l2read. He doesn't have the card anymore. It has been destroyed.
Killed means that the card is totally dead, the driver 320.18 burned many GTX cards, it was a failure from Nvidia. Some lucky ones just overheated and crashed.
I got my R9 270 for $90 lol. To have gotten the GTX 760 I would have had to spent $150. I think I made the right choice :P
i HAVE CRYSIS 3 AND A R9270 DUALX, and I get more than that....around 40 fps on ultra and cpu is a fx6300, and 8 gb of ram.....
that depends, for 20$ i would pick the gtx 760, but when i have buyed my pc it was 180€ (215$) for the r9 270 and 270€ (320$) for the gtx 760, so paying 100$ for 10% more, its like putting money on the trash lol
5 FPS is Crysis 3 is kind of a big deal...
You sure? The 760 is less expensive for me
They really should add price into the comparisons.
your mean
Only sometimes...
Toms hardware showed 270x edges out 760 in newer games, and is thus more future proof.
By like 5 fps for $20. No thanks.
this should answer ur questions. more accurate than this site:
With gtx 760 stock i catch 100-130 fps bf 4 ultra :)
its true GPuboss did it but still 760 better in gaming :)
The 270X doesn't beat the GTX 760. The 280X does though. 5 FPS difference or so with the 280X and 760... Fools.
Not sure if troll, or just dumb. The 270x released at a 4gb version the highest possible price at 240$. Only about a month after they launched (last year) they dropped universally to ~200 and under. While the 760 has dropped about the same amount and sits comfortably at 260$
Is there a advantage of using AMD Processor with AMD Video card I think there is a Crossfire between those two?
i bought a 7850 last year 120$, and this year r9 270x 120$, now i am a happy crossfire user. :) You may now tell me how is your nvidia card better. i dont even have to oc now and i get 30% more fps than nShity760
They run biased benchmarks (might be getting paid by Nvidia, or an employee might be ex-nvidia), a little while back they were comparing an amd where the test bench cpu was an Athlon II x2, while the nvidia card was running i7 4770k.
Not in every experience I've had with both, and I've had quite a lot...Maxwell might change that, though.
Calm down nvidia fanboys. I have own nvidia card but dont be stupid, with 280$ witch have the gtx 760 you can buy the r9 280x witch is a lot better than gtx760. In my opinion the 760 is WAY overpriced. Your smartest choise is to get the 280x for your money.
i dont know about you guys but in my country r9 270x is the best gpu to buy for its money(180Euros). i have tried to find another one more good in the same price but i didnt.
