Flektarn quoted me 1 minute before your post where I stated "They are pretty damn equal...." Guess I somehow edited his post also even though it shows not edit??

Read just a tad bit closer there wink.gif

Here are some of Techpowerup`s games they tested. Nice try
Please stop posting reviews from totally unknown sites. Anandtech and Techpowerup is probably the one of the most known and respected reviewer sites on the internet thumb.gif

- Alan wake
- Batman
- Battlefield 3
- Crysis 2
- Diablo 3
- Dragon Age 2
- Metro 2033
- Sniper Elite V2
- Skyrim
- Shogun 2

I'm seeing a lot of contradicting reviews among the different websites, which sucks cause now I don't know if the GTX 660ti is a good value or not. Some websites say it can match the 7950, while other sites show it well behind the 7950 and even having trouble catching up to the 7870. Sigh....

Depends on what game you want to play really. It will play BF3 for darn sure just fine easily as will the 7950. You cannot go wrong either way there. Now if you are looking forward to Crysis 3 then that could be another story.

That's irrelevant. It would handle a GTX 660Ti just fine on the same note. Whether it'll be bottlenecked or not.

My point being, you're talking about 8xMSAA vs 4xMSAA but did you compare the frames? Who says you need 8xMSAA if you can do 2xSSAA and get better frames (depends on the application). You need to apply AA with reason not just cranking it all the way to 128xSLI CSAA because you can... It's about experience, if you prefer AMD cards than it is a valid reason for you to get an HD 7870. But looking at the general picture the 660Ti is a better GPU than a 7870.

I don't like this current generation of GPUs (both sides) at all. They're all overpriced IMO but that doesn't mean a 7970 is not "worth" $420 or a GTX 670 "worth" $400 for another person...

Seriously, I've seen like 10 of your posts, and every single one of them posts the EXACT SAME GRAPH and says the exact same thing except this time it's been updated with the 660ti

Techpowerup and Anandtech says 660TI and 7950 are equal. Bit-tech found the same

Stop reading bogus reviewer sites. Pretty much every respectable reviewer says 7950 = 660TI

However, at very high resolutions with ultra settings, the 660TI falls behind due to low memory bandwidth. 1080p Ultra and 2560 on non extreme settings, the 660 TI is an excellent choice

I am talking about that 660 ti its not worth it at 300- 350 $. Easily i would go gtx670 or 7950 over 660 ti. And i am not talking even for CSAA. 4xmsaa is the perfect spot for me.

I dont think so. We must w8 until we see more bench from users. Like the post above crank up the AA and this card cant keep up. No reason to choose 660ti over 7950 or 7870 from the moment that the mark for this card is at 300$. For 300 $ i want to play with AA at 1080p at least.

You only see things red don`t you??
According to techpowerup/anandtech and a lot of other sites, the 660 TI is equal to 7950. So stop with your Bull

Yeah okay. Look at the results at 1200p and 1600p with games maxed out and tell me TPU's results show 660 Ti > 7950. That chart includes tests ran at 1024x768 with no AA in the mix.

anyone who owns a kepler knows that the default boost clock is useless. they have a second boost that makes them run at much higher clocks. also, almost no two users get the exact same results. the clock speed will vary based on conditions in your case. 670 owner A can have his card boosting to 1180mhz out of box pretty much constantly, while 670 owner B with the same exact card can have his boosting to 1250mhz. and you may as well call it auto overclock because the only time the clock speeds aren't constantly at maximum is in menus or when you close the game/benchmark. this is by design to accomplish win every metric and public perception, and a job well done it was. also, isn't the default boost clock 980mhz? not that they will run at that speed, just thought it was the same as reference 670's.

this.

Honestly, I doubt you'll personally really notice the difference between a GTX 660Ti stock @ $300 vs. your 7970 OC'ed considering you paired it with a 3.8GHz Deneb with 2 missing pins...

Oh wow. The 660 Ti can't even keep up with an 800MHz 7950 when it's boosting to something like 1100MHz. Obviously it's the better card! rolleyes.gif

Overclock the 7950, overclock the 660 Ti... the difference on the 7950 will be 300-400MHz and the difference on the 660 Ti will be 100-200MHz. Then you'll see the real winner.
