Seeing the GTX670 perform this well, on about the same pricerange as i paid for my 7950 i am wondering if its worth the trouble/hassle selling it and getting a GTX670 instead? Or isnt it that much of an upgrade?
All the reviews i see are based on stock 7950's.

Stock 7950 is at 800 Mhz, at 1100 Mhz youre looking at slightly better performance than a 7970 ... keep your card mate, I have the same and trust me, it is better (or virtually the same performance).

You can probably clock a bit higher with a bit of voltage..

Benefits of the 670 over the 7950:
  • 670 handles a lot of games better than AMD simply because of the architect differences (any game with heavy tessellation or physics the NVidia cards will dominate)
  • 670 handles a lot of games better than AMD simply because of their better drivers (Skyrim comes to mind, AMD cards have god-awful performance in skyrim because of driver issues alone)
  • 670 has less micro-stuttering than the 7950, this is a very big deal since micro-stuttering effects all games
  • 670 supports SLi better than 7950 supports CF, this makes upgrading to a second 670 down the road a lot more viable
  • 670 supports multi-monitor resolutions better than a 7950. All 7000 series cards suffer from screen tearing and flickering at eyefinity resolutions
  • 670 runs barely cooler and therefore quieter


Cool story bro rolleyes.gif..


Benefits of the 7950 over the 670:

  • 7950 is many times better at GPU computing, this has no impact on gaming performance though

Yeh you can bet that with more and more programs using GPU compute, that you definitely wont be needing that compute for any games in the near future rolleyes.gif /s


I'll update this list if anyone has any objections or additional things to add.

Games don't rely heavily on GPGPU...

so question now is, keeping noise, heat and ocability in mind, 7950 TFIII or crap cooled gtx 670. the 670 costs 10 euros more than the tfiii 7950. i can have a crap cooled 7950 for 324 tho...

No and again no. take a 7950 overclock it and have an equal card with 1 gb more ram

also taking in account that the 670 is overclocked?

Yeap but the overclock scale of 7950 is much better. A 7950 at 1150 could easily much up with a 670 oc.

check with a mild overclock the increase in performance

Go 670. Lower power consumption, better drivers, runs cooler and quieter, and stock vs stock / OC vs OC 670 will come out on top. SLI for future use scales excellent. Great tessellation performance. Nvidia FXAA and it is available in models of 4GB for ultra high res gaming. EVGA for lifetime warranty.
