Lol, does anyone really think this will beat a 7970? 12% less CUDA cores than the GTX 680, 900mhz base clock (vs. the ~1000mhz of the 680), just right there that's a 22% disadvantage; putting it below a 7970 handily, and maybe slightly above the 7950.

and I'll probably be making an ass of myself but isn't the 570/580 a competitor with the 7950? Didn't the first post quote say that it'll be a competitor with the 7950? just wondering what the point of the card is then....
No, the 580 is a competitor with the 7950 I suppose, although it's no contest in favor of the 7950 when both are OC'd on stock volts. The 7850 is within about 7% of the 570, the 7870 is faster than the 6970/570. Nice try though.Edited by jrbroad77 - 4/6/12 at 3:47pm
