The 7970 has roughly a 8 % better performance per clock, but Nvidia has a 20% stock clock advantage. The whole point of this thread is for the Performance King, without price / acoustics / power usage into consideration.

Well it depends what your looking for, you can get a 0 Db 6670, does this mean that its infinitely better than a 7970? tongue.gif I am talking sheer performance KING!

Let's see now. If it's the KING of OC, we know the 7970 is a definite beast at it, and NV's GPU Boost and Voltage locking pretty much cripple the 680. But let's talk about stock, which most buyers out there (excluding most OCN members) will actually be gaming at. This is where the 680 shines. I hate having my 7970 beat down by the 680 at stock, but that's the fact right now. The general public will consider the 680 as KING just based on the numbers it pulls against the 7970 at stock, even though it's clocked around roughly 20% higher. Now if AMD were to give us a 7980 with much higher clocks, meaning specially binned chips, clocked exactly the same as the 680's and priced accordingly, then we'll be seeing some real competition. AMD is in trouble. I hate to admit it. But that's the case right now. When the 670, 670 Ti's, and 660's come out, they'll be in an even bigger load of hurt, unless Pitcairn can pull of some miracles and beat the crap out the lower spec'ed Kepler parts.

More 7970 OC cards coming out soon! Its interesting to see that the factory overclocked gtx 680s only go as high as 1150 mhz, which is only 50 more mhz than its stock turbo, yet there are 1100 mhz factory overclocked 7970s coming out really soon, which are 175 mhz higher than its stock clock.

I can't wait to start playing with mine and see what they are capable of!
post #658 of 679
well, it is true amd is in deep crap. I am sorry, it seems nvidea is up to something or has more version cards in the works.
post #659 of 679
Ok, so based on the poll. GTX680 is the real king.
HD7970, a wannabe one.
And people please explain, why comparing two different architectures clock to clock? WHAT FOR?

Well your thread just went from a poll for us to answer to a biased post by changing the title mid stream like that = big AMD fanboy Nvidia hate thread by the OP.

Not to mention such a cheesy source I laughed pretty darn hard.

Tons of these threads like this. Time for the usual lock once this gets going with the responses. -1 rep tongue.gif

I agree with Jedix - Congrats Polyzp. Thread is FAIL. Regardless who's winning the poll.
