Wrong. The very first non-reference/factory OC card I've seen turbos to 1200 stock. Please stop spreading FUD, and I can't help but laugh at your thread title edit to try to sway the poll. The cards are rated at their minimum/average turbo, not their normal/max one. For example, a normal GTX 680 turbos to 1100mhz even though the box says 1156 wink.gif. Go look at any review. P.S. LOL @ the thread title again... they don't come at the same clocks, so invalid comparison.

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

If you're going to compare clock for clock on these cards you MUST compare "watt for watt" per se.

I may not have stumbled upon it, which card clocks to 1200 mhz ?

No need for the title edit, this was a pretty biased thread against the 680 to begin with. That being said....

My advice to all of my GTX 680 friends is to save it for the Battle Royale thread. There is a whole lot of jawing going on but very few actual submissions over there. Why is that? You guys seem so convinced you have the "superior" cards, well, prove it! thumb.gif

clock per clock comparisons are important for those who will push their GPUs to their absolute maximum, because ultimately the clock difference between an ocd 7970 and an ocd 680 is within error (+-200mhz), with only a slight (~50mhz or so) advantage for nvidia.

Clock per clock doesn't matter man, only ultimate performance. The 680 guys have a perfect opportunity to prove us 7970'ers wrong in the Battle Royale thread. If their cards really are the superior ones surely they should have no problem spanking us in that thread???

That thread is limited to only a couple benchmarks and wont give a good general performance indication other than for those benchmarks. I want to see 100+ benchmarks 7970 vs gtx 680 @ 1250 mhz each, and see the average performance difference in percent.
