BF3 runs a lot better. Is it so ? are settings maxed out ? what resolution ?

cause hardocp has a different view

"BF3 performed extremely well on the GeForce GTX 670 all the way up to 2560x1600. At 2560x1600 we were able to have all the in-game quality options set to "Ultra" plus HBAO. We found FXAA provided the best image quality plus performance. However, we did push it up to 2X AA plus FXAA and performance was right on the border of being playable. Some may find that level playable, and it's impressive that a $399 video card could even achieve that setting at 2560x1600."

http://hardocp.com/article/2012/04/10/sapphire_hd_7970_oc_edition_video_card_review/7

"The Out-of-Box Sapphire HD 7970 OC Edition (950 Mhz) averaged 47.3 FPS at 2560x1600 with 2X MSAA and FXAA High enabled with all other graphics options selected on the highest setting. The reference Radeon HD 7970 averaged 47 FPS at these settings, while the GeForce GTX 680 averaged 49.4 FPS. We were unable to increase AA on these three video cards to 4X MSAA because framerates dropped too low during combat creating a noticeable lag. "

"The Overclock on the Sapphire HD 7970 OC provided enough performance to increase Antialiasing to 4X MSAA and FXAA High. At these settings it averaged 50.7 FPS and provided the best overall gameplay experience. Important to note is that these settings are the highest possible settings there are in BF3. The in-game quality settings are at their highest values, and the AA settings are at their highest values, there is going no higher, this is the maximum possible image quality in BF3 at 2560x1600! The game looked incredible."


If you can please post a fraps graph of both cards running operation swordbreaker level at their max clocks your statement can be more credible.

I dont have the 7970 anymore so i cant do a direct comparison . I play at 2560x1440 everything maxed , fxaa on (which i dont think affects bf3) and adaptive vsync on. I must note my 670 boost clocks to 1200 mhz on its own with no overclocking . Of course the 7970 doesnt have adaptive vsync either.

Positioning the mid-range GeForce GTX 660 graphics card rumors as early as January of this year alone . Now, we were informed that the GeForce GTX 660 will be launched in the near future, the price of at least $ 299.

GeForce GTX 660 may be the first graphics card products based on Kepler GK106 chip , built-in 768 CUDA cores, four SMX units, 64 texture mapping units (TMU), and 24 raster operation units (ROP).

Memory area, allegedly using 192-bit memory controller, the GeForce GTX 660 with 1536MB GDDR5 graphics . The overall graphics power consumption at around 130 watts, with a 6pin PCIE power interface.

GeForce GTX 660 may use the GTX, 670 of the PCB in order to reduce development costs, therefore, the GeForce GTX 660 PCB will and GTX, 670 the PCB of the same length, the only modification is the PCIE power connector number from two modified one.

GeForce GTX 660 suggested retail price between 299-329 U.S. dollars, the domestic price is estimated at 2200-2400 yuan. Of course, the GeForce GTX 660 performance is certainly lower than the GeForce GTX 670, because its main rival is the AMD 339 $ Radeon ™ HD 7 870.

Way to selectively quote them....

 

"Alternatively, 1920x1200 was playable with 4X AA plus FXAA. Therefore, if you have a 1080p display, you will be able to maximize the graphics settings in this game to its highest potential with the GTX 670. The AMD Radeon HD 7950 and GTX 580 also reached the same playable setting at 2560x1600, but with much lower framerates. The GeForce GTX 670 certainly gives you a smoother experience."

I agree with the above statements. The $300 pricepoint is still above my price range. I've never spent over $250 on a videocard, and I don't plan to start doing so. $200 was my limit, but I decided to splurge a bit on my 560 Ti

I'll be sticking with this 560 Ti for the foreseeable future.

Agreed, and same for me. Really wanted a 660ti though frown.gif Maybe once price drops (sales, etc) roll around eventually.

The rumoured price is ridiculous. Maybe a TI version of it would worth that price. Its just too much.
