I love how low OC they used on the Lightning compared to the 7970. 1250 MHz on a 7970 is pretty much max and the Lightning is 200-250 MHz from what it can do.
AMDs driver/game support still sucks compared to Nvidia. So who cares about some random numbers. You prob. do since you bought a 7970. But i wouldnt trade my 680 for any 7970 card thats for sure
Been there, and not going back for some time now. Why would i when my card run all games flawlessly? I changed to GTX 680 because i wasnt satisfied with my 7970s. (Yes i had two, first one died but both had same issues, actually the 2nd had even more coilwhine...) Lots of this is prob. due to ****ty drivers..
Coilwhine, artifacts, bugged shadows, bad gpu usage, 2D flickering when scrolling/browsing.. When i used my HDMI -> TV, i couldnt get the start menu away. Big and small problems, that pissed me off and made me switch in the end. FPS aint everything.
On my Lightning i have had ZERO problems so far. 3 months out. Best card i have ever owned. The only downside is the lack of GPU voltage support in newer AB.The Nvidia-based solutions are somewhat better in terms of bottom frame rate, though
(From your Link) Minimum fps is whats most important in my book, and even on a low OCed Lightning like that..
I still wonder why you are writing that stuff in a 680 owners thread, i guess you want to piss people off Edited by Lass3 - 10/25/12 at 12:20pm
