Just a quick question, why 480 over hd 7950?

I mean i understand about power consumption, but 480 is putting out (what i saw was around 50 sols.) and my own hd 7950’s are putting out 50 sols also each, i mean i understand people using them for less power but why are people spending money on brand new rigs when everything is so unsure right now? i bought my hd 7950’s for around 100$, why spend the extra 120$ when your not really a mining farm?

some might switch from ETH to ZEC and ZEC to ETH, so the RX400 series is probably better for that

Yeah 7950 is bad with ETH which might be your only option if ZEC tanks.
