it's the definition of value that is bringing the 7850 to the fore here... ignore the cost, and you'd be right
Youre right.
This makes no sense. Almost all the benchmarks and total score seems to say the 7850 is better yet the 460 is declared the winner. I think the benchmarks are wrong. PassMark has the 460 winning.
