Just try the usual suspects on 2nd & 3rd floor at LYP. I have a C12P SE14 I'm looking to sell. Used it before I got the D14. Works amazingly well especially if you know how to direct the air flow in your case properly to take advantage of the C12P's top down design.

More Proof that 7970 beats the GTX 680 clock per clock (1100 mhz / 6 ghz)

700

What I expected, even OBR a known anti-AMD troll admits the 7970 is better clock per clock!

HE ACTUALLY MADE A MISTAKE IT LOOKS LIKE THE 7970 IS ~8.0% BETTER ON AVERAGE CLOCK PER CLOCK, NOT 1.8%, I DID THE MATH AVERAGING MY SELF! DO IT TO CONFIRM!

BTW GTX 680's are getting phenomenal scaling. It's no longer a reason 'not' to choose Nvidia any longer. Bad scaling is over with 680's. Getting some OCN members showing darn close to 100% scaling. smile.gif

Is this a 'perfomance' king thread btw? Seems a lot of back and forth trying to prove FPS as the sole reason to choose even though they are close to care.

Take all the perks, features, pricing, compatibility, gaming conflicts or lack of, graphic rendering, visual quality, into consideration per perfomance is a very viable debate as a whole.

Also we all don't serve the same 'king'. So each persons 'king' may vary. Hence why this thread is a dead end. We're all trying to prove each other wrong is subjectional to opinion.

Perfect scaling mean micro stutter.

You need to understand that amd has better multi monitor technology and scales better in crossfire, I assume, plus the 3gb on the card, not only that it is better at compute.

What compute would you be using the 7970 for, I have a feeling I may want to switch to Nvidea for some reason I have neither card, but all of a sudden I got interested in both of them.
post #647 of 679
Let me correct myself will 680 get better when there is a driver update for the cards from Nvidea? rememnber the AAX2 that needs to be adjusted that may have played a factor in amd being ahead.

Look at tomshardware information.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-680-sli-overclock-surround,3162.html


also the 4gb versions have not yet released.

I'm not sure how the C12P performs against my Hyper 212 Plus but if it does outperform, how much are you willing to let it go for??

That still doesn't justify being $50.00 more.
