What are the numbers on GPU's? To clarify, I always thought that higher numbers meant a faster GPU i.e. a 7xxx series was faster than all the 6xxx series. Why is a 6870 a butt load faster than a 7770?
Using this as reference:
Kind goes the same with Nvidia card. I just don't understand the way that AMD or NVidia designates a new series of cards, but some cards in that series are worse than higher end cards even 2 series' ago.
Anyways, I'm just really confused by this. Looking back when I bought my 7770, I should've spent the extra little bit, gotten the older 6870 they had sitting there, but me thinking "Ooohhh... 7xxx series is newer, it will be faster." Boy do I feel stupid.
