Thanks for the review! However, it seems the Unigine Heaven benchmark page has a Civ V screenshot on it :P

Good review! I'm thinking of upgrading soon and I'm on the fence between a 7950 and 7870, so this helps! Still not sure which i'm gonna go with as they're both good cards.

One thing I noticed though, in the table on the Specifications page, you list the 7870 as having 640 Stream Processing Units. Isn't this the SPU count for the 7770? Newegg lists the 7870 as having 1280...


Otherwise great review!

Fixed it, thanks for catching. As for the Civ V screenshot instead of the Unigine one, I'll have to see who can fix it that has the screenshot available.
