If prices were identical it would be a dead even match. From all the hype i was under the impression the gtx 680 would out perform the 7970, as the gtx 580 did the 6970, however we have yet to see GK110 numbers so well see. I still think that sapphire's 1335 mhz stock clocked 7970 (if it ever comes out, and which probably overclocks to 1400+mhz) will be the card up against the gk110.

Honestly, there is not a clear winner, and that if one is leaning towards one side, he'll just go with that side probably. It is basically preference. Anyways this situation is much much better than one card blowing out the other.

So now a facebook wall post from nvidia Italy counts as overhype? I don't think that was exactly a press release but honestly, at stock he's right..... thumb.gif

Well, I mean, they said kepler was unbeatable, not GK104. Since the 680 is upsetting the crowd with a win over the 7970, I really doubt the GK110 can be anything but a winner, at least as far as performance is concerned.

Not sure what is happening over there, but I woke up this morning to see prices had dropped in Australia for the 7970's. Drop was about $50 a card. Nice little surprise on a Monday morning.

If you think of the GTX680 as a GTX670, That would make the GK110 the True GTX680. If they did come out like they have always been you would not see more then ~ 15-20% more performance. To do that Nvidia has to adjust a lot more things then just the Core. AMD can just adjust the core and have a HD 7980 out with 20% and have another close tie. HD 7970 is not designed to fight a card 9-12 months after its launch.

1335/925 = +45% increase in clock ==> GK110 must perform alot over 45% better than the 7970 at stock to "leave it in the dust".
