For the same reason that people seem to think you need to match clocks when comparing the cards. If people want to declock the 680 or overclock the 7970 to consider it fair just because the 680 has a faster stock clock, then why shouldn't we also compare them both with Day 1 drivers.
Seems fair to me. Bottle line these cares are within ~5% of each other after overclocked. Most people will go with the cheaper card, which is currently the 680.

I still would of bought this card at $550, infact that's about what I was suspecting to pay. I'm sure the cards still would of sold out, just a little slower.Edited by Murlocke - 3/22/12 at 11:12pm
