Damn, those ATI engineers did something with GCN :3eyes: Any sources for this? I don't know if you do it on purpose but the reason this whole thing is being asked is not framerate, but the percentage that the framerate goes down as you lower you CPU spec. For NVIDIA is so much better that people recommend lower-tier NVIDIA cards. The Digital Foundry recommended a GTX 750 Ti to an R9 280 for people with slower CPUs. As for the card benchmarks, here they are.
