oh well...I'll just have to milk the $hit outta my 550 Ti's for a while (bought both cards for $175 as a temporary place holder waiting for the 7870)... what a let down...

It is a shame indeed. They might have stuck with that pricing because Nvidia's 580 was priced around that point but who is to say Nvidia wouldn't have reduced the 580 price accordingly

Can't wait to get my hands on 1536 cuda cores to render adobe premiere 4k hd video in 1/3 the time of my current GTX 580 setup!

Thanks.

Most pointless feature in the world.... The card enables v-sync and thus runs at a capped frame rate when it can and becomes unlocked during tough times.

And that is different from normal v-sync how?

i thought that was the turbo boost feature people mentioned. also imo they should have clocked the 7970 to ~1ghz as well for better comparison as
everyone who has a 7970 seems to reach that far.

7970 supposedly has a lot more compute power then kepler so in your line of work you might be better off with it smile.gif

And that is different from normal v-sync how?

Traditional v-sync stays on all the time. When framerates drop below 60, the new frame rate cap is 30. It has to do with the refresh rate. The introduction of double and triple buffering helps the situation but I don't know the specifics of how it works.

Adaptive v-sync means that when frame rates dip below 60, v-sync gets turned off. That means if you are suppose to have 56fps, you'll get that 56 fps instead of having v-sync cap it down to 30.

Yeah, what is their agenda here, if they can do that with one chart, can the rest of the preview be fully trusted, I think not.

I will wait for more solid previews.

I'm serious laughing at all the "Overclocked GTX 680 beats a stock 7970.. no surprise there" type posts still happening. Do people even read the thread or research the card people posting absurd comments like this?

Both cards are at stock, it's been said many times on this thread. At stock the GTX 680 is running colder than the 7970, meaning it could possibly overclock better than the 7970 as long is there is not some other type of limitation.

If these are all true, the GTX 680 is simply the better card for gamers. It doesn't give a big enough gap for 7970 owners to upgrade, but it runs cooler and performs better on drivers that aren't even finalized for the GTX 680 yet. Getting kind of tired of AMD fans coming in here and trying to nitpick reasons on why this card is inferior to the 7970. AMD had the crown for awhile now, and it looks like NVIDIA is taking it back. This is how progression should work. Stop moaning and enjoy the ride, competition is how we get faster cards for cheaper.
