Step down to Full HD and see things change.

I wouldnt bet on it. I know amd has an edge over nvidia at that resolution, but even at 1080p they would be even. My point being with the current drivers even lightnings cant beat a decent clocking 7970. Not a fanboy, 680 sli owner. thumb.gif Only 2 things led me to choose 680's over 7970's, them being 3D and sli support.

I came from 7970. Its an okay chip, but i wouldnt change my 680 Lightning for any 7970. It just works. I had several issues with my 7970 especially in older/not so popular games. Fx. Amnesia i got huge fps drops and GTA 4 was unplayable at high settings because of fps drops below 30. This aint happening on my Lightning. It just works flawlessly. Besides that, i had severe coilwhine in all intros/game menus, and still an annoying whine when playing games. On two different cards.

On top of this both my 7970 couldnt do 1200 MHz stable. And my GTX can do 1480/1750 stable at 1.35v. It's way faster in all the games i play. Especially BF3 smile.gif Even at my 24/7 settings in sig. (stock gpu voltage)

For (most) benchmarks, im sure a highly clocked 7970 would be nice, but why compare with a 1342 MHz 680 when most Lightning do 1450+ at maxed voltages? And in 1920x1080/1200 it would be different numbers wink.gif

It's been out for a bit. Have to edit the config file to adjust the voltage.

One of the first things I did when I got my first Lightning that did 1380mhz was throw Amnesia on and play with 128 SSAO samples laugher.gif It didn't look much different, I must admit, but just the fact that I was able to run it smoothly with that kind of setting made me all warm and fuzzy inside.

But yeah, "most Lightnings do 1450mhz+" isn't the case anymore, unfortunately. But they do still murder any 7970 out there biggrin.gif

1480 @ 1.35v....damn. I still can't get over that. You sure it's on air? frown.gif

same exact score with the new beta 310.33 as with the whlq drivers.
post #3460 of 7827
i seen no performance difference in drivers either..i think it set panic to nvidia cause amd took the spotlight again.on top of the cheaper price they are offering 3 awsome games with purchase with 7900 cards and a 20% off coupon for moh warfighter..just the games alone make it def worth the price..but i am never getting swindled into buying an amd card again. but then again.i can see nvidia next gen locking any oc capabilities on there cards..voltage lock..whats next..
