It gets even worse as you add more SLI cards which is another point I made.
doh.gif They're the same exact thing... Flipping the switch to 880Mhz makes then identical.

Theoretically, they are the same thing, just like the 590 is just two 580's.

Technically, they are not the same thing.

On another note, why are you being so hostile? That's not normally your style.

Some people will try to find any excuse to not face reality.

How about you bench your HD6970s? I'm seeing an easy easy win for the 580s. thumb.gif

When is that ever NOT the case? 570 OC = stock 580, 6950 = stock 6970. Same with prior generations. Why does this surprise people still? The gap between the fastest and second fastest card from a company is always much larger in price than it is in performance.

At best, negligible differences above the 580's specs.

If by good margin you mean being equal min. rates in some benches, and a few frames more for max in others, then sure its a great margin wink.gif

Better Nvidia gets a 680/780 that beats 7970. if not the wait was in vain

580 OC:

Price:
7950:
$480 USD

580 3Gb:
Cheapest one is $550 USD
Runs 18*C cooler and uses 137watts less, and is 19% faster (On average), and costs $70 dollars less.

I don't see how it is still only marginally better than the 580 3Gb, would you like to enlighten me on why a card that is roughly 20% slower, runs hotter, uses more power and is $70 more is better?
