The 7970 seems like a great card, it improves on AMD's image quality and clearly it's performance as well. I hope anyone who purchases one or more enjoys them for years to come.

gtx 470 is fermi, while the gtx 580 is also fermi.....doesn't seem hard to believe that a watercooled 470 could be comparable to a stock 580...

But....MSI lightning GTX 580 would make (bigcactus) pretty jelly i'm guessing b/c they are faster than stock 580s thumb.gif

Hey, if anybody knows about the power of your 470's its me, but come on, you need water and tons of volts to reach your admittedly crazy scores. The 7970's are doing 250MHz (30%) overclocks at stock voltage which is amazing. Add another 30% with max voltage and its easy to see that 580's/470's/whatever are not going to come close to them. It is a dang impressive card Balla....

It doesn't matter to him.

He'll reply back with some argument about price and how 2 much cheaper cards outperform it.

This should be highlighted. The 7970 is getting 200mhz overclocks on stock voltage with a 2C increase in temps.

My MSI lightnings require +100mV to get a 150MHz overclock, by comparison, and there is a larger increase in temps. Also most stock GTX 580s can't approach the level of oc's that the lightning can, obviously..... I think the potential of the 7970 hasn't even been tapped yet, which is why i'm exited about it thumb.gif
post #885 of 1708

I don't use a lot of voltage, the cooler temps are what they like not the added voltage.

 

We don't know enough about the cards to assume anything based on models AMD personally selected, bios flashed, VID checked, and sent out for review.

 

(it's more like 15-20% overclocks)

True, we won't KNOW anything for sure until people start getting the cards in their hands but 200MHz OC at stock voltage is a damn good start....

Btw, Legitreviews got 1165MHz which is 240 over stock. 240/925=26% OC (if my math is right???)

But please, keep drinking the kool-aid and boasting about that godly 465/470 of yours. Tell us how much fools we are for buying anything else but your godly 470.
I would use another car analogy, but your reply would be 'I lost all credibility for using cars'.
Lol.

I already said I was going to buy a 7900 series card, lol! You really just don't get it do you. My objection is the price / performance! Not an AMD vs. Nvidia thing. I actually prefer AMD.

First you make the assumption that a 470 clocked at 915mhz is around stock 570 performance. This shows your lack of video card knowledge. yessir.gif

Then someone compares a 7970 to a Ferrari and you defend him. helpinghand.gif

50% OC club. You cannot join this club with a 7970. I will buy a 7900 series card and I will love it. Does that mean I'm going to justify the ridiculous price of it? No.

That's because I draw the line of fan boy to tech enthusiast ok?

now... i think some people are just in denial ... and thinking of 1001 arguments against the price tag ...

What's up with the card and you guys anyway? It's expensive but we should all be really happy about AMD launching such a card ... i'm not buying but i'm really happy about AMD getting into the game, head to head with Nvidia.
post #889 of 1708

Whats up with your need to argue against my own personal opinion?

 

Why do I need to defend my own personal view?

 

Buy what you want, I said what I thought and we're still here talking about it because people are "unhappy" with what I and several other people thought.

 

Just buy the card and ignore our opinions, we don't care about yours, you shouldn't care about ours. Buy what you want, be happy, stop trying to make everyone share your opinion.

One thing that some people questioning the 7970's worth seem to keep forgetting is the HUGE overclocking potential. They keep spewing "only 15% more than 580" this and "not much faster than my super-amazing-awesome-unbeatable 465" that, but the benches they keep posting are all at stock speeds. Some reviews were getting 200+ MHz overclocks ON STOCK VOLTAGE! Let's see your 470's do that!
Anyway, when the manufacturers offer their "stock" superclocked cards and AMD' finalizes their drivers these early benches are going to be meaningless. That 15-20% faster than a 580 will jump to 50-60% faster and then maybe people around here will start to understand that this is definitely a new generation and easily the best gpu money can buy for at least the next half year....

You should look at the context of my post. I was not claiming that it wasn't an enthusiast rig. He claims to be "rolling with the big boys" where it doesn't matter how much money you spend. Clearly judging by his rig that is not the case. I'm not here to smacktalk people but at least have an honest discussion.
