Yeah that would be pretty swick but sadly by the time they did that it wouldn't work out much cheaper than a 7950

Looking at the core structure the 7870LE is around 85% or so of what you would get with a 7950. So that makes me wonder just how much cheaper the cores are to buy (or were if they have been discontinued) and why the 7870LE was priced as well as it was.

Because I can't see AMD selling them for peanuts so the cuts came from somewhere and that would be the inferior cooling.

Putting something like a Direct CU II cooler on a cheap core would soon bring the prices up to the point where it isn't worth bothering.

don't forget putting the Direct CU II cooler would also put Asus on it which would add to the price for a well know brand name

Anyway ordered myself a vtx3d hd7870 black which should be here tomorrow, then I'll have the joys of draining my loop after 1 1/2 years

as a guide from the 6870 to the 7870 I get an extra 15-20 fps in tomb raider benchmark
I think I lost out in the silicon lottery mine only clocks to 1150 not 1200

with 1080p ultimate setting I get 35 min and 45 max at stock clocks.
I don't have my cpu or gpu OC'd as I only have 1x120 rad cooling atm until next week when I put my loop back together
