[TPU] GTX 680 Generally Faster Than HD 7970: New Benchmarks - Page 7  

post #61 of 78
MEH 3 months behind ATI and am willing to bet will be priced higher consume more power and run hotter. So just like every new generation of cards over the past..what 8 years from nvidia? Color me unimpressed.

Dude, did you even read the info?

A) 10 weeks later.
B) Beats AMD on...

Price
Performance
Heat
Power consumption
Perf/watt
Perf/mm
Perf/price
Drivers
PhysX support
CUDA support for developers
Die size

AKA every conceivable measurable factor we know of.

C) 10 weeks is absolutely nothing in the market. No one cares but die-hard AMD fans that the Radeon 7970 came that little bit earlier.

What were you saying again? Most of us go with whatever is the best card when we're buying/about to buy, and in this market it is a clear-cut thing that the GTX 680 is the winner unless you're just buying for the brand name of "AMD".

When Charlie (SA) says that NVidia has won, that's when you know NVidia really has won this round.

Did you miss the HKE PC review or something? Been off-planet a day? It is an official review that confirms every single point I listed.

Bye now. The rest of us don't care which company's better, just that we can buy the one that is.

Did you hear of HKEPC before today? I guess they're about as legitimate and post complete 100% objective verifiable facts like chiphell and pcinlife.

Those other chinese websites are known for their absolute accurate reporting with no fake graphs thumb.gif Kudos to you for bringing this to light.

Yeah, actually, I've heard of them as of around 4 years ago and they've been around for several years. Thanks! This is posted as a review and not a rumor.

So how's the kepler getting 74 fps in MW3 ? Both the 580 and 7970 get framerates in the 200s and 300s at 1080p , I find this the most hilarious aspect of this review. 74 fps in MW3 at 1080p. And with a SB-E too. A likely story.

All i'm saying is there are too many fallacies with this "review" to take it seriously, the kepler may well be an awesome card and impressive if the rumors are true. But i'll pass on this source of yours, i'll await the real benchmarks next Wednesday.

It's called CPU limit. All of the cards get 74fps max in the review. It's not my source, and there aren't any fallacies but those of your own making and imagination.
