Seems quite odd as I can do the same 7.6ghz the 660ti OC does. The extra memory bandwidth gives an extra 10-15% in 3dmark11, Metro 2033 and Heaven.

I want to know how much of a factor this was as well.

The 660ti was overclocked to 1900, the 7950 was overclocked to 1700mhz.

I'd think that most of these cards use the same ram chips, making the 670 sample somewhat of a dud. The fact that it had a good core overclock, but a poor memory overclock, likely affected the results, but by how much? It would be interesting to see how well a similar 670 with the memory clocked at 1700mhz or higher would fare.

Hardocp weren't the only ones who've had trouble breaking 1200mhz even with voltage on the 7950. In the GPU roundup, only two broke 1200mhz.

The same can be said for the 670. Not every review could get to 1300mhz core either.

hardware cannucks have the most biased reviews ever... IT favours Nvidia hell alot just like toms favour AMD to very high extent...
Its better to take an average of all reviews rather than relying on 1..

If only hardwarecanucks had the guts to pit a voltage overclocked custom cooler HD 7950 against a max overclocked custom GTX 670. but knowing hardwarecanucks they won't do that . they will keep comparing factory overclocked GTX 670 with a ref HD 7950 boost with a pathetic cooler and keep praising GTX 670 saying the GTX 670 is much superior. predictable from one of the worst Nvidia biased sites. And the best part is the GTX 670 OC cards are selling at USD 400+ and competing with HD 7970 (1 Ghz ) cards like the Gigabyte Windforce and Sapphire HD 7970 (1 Ghz) which will easily beat the GTX 670 OC. but do you think that hardwarecanucks will mention that in their review conclusion. not a chance. you don't need more proof that hardwarecanucks is biased towards Nvidia. hardwarecanucks is generally interested in reviewing custom GTX 670 or GTX 660 Ti cards. But they don't bother to review custom HD 7970 Ghz cards and HD 7950 boost cards . Not a single HD 7970 Ghz card reviewed more than a month after retail availability.

It is also the ONLY review that shows that where all other show when overclocked the 7950 is right on par with the 670 if not ahead of it depending on the game and for a LOT cheaper.....

Why would Hardware Canucks even compare a $400+ 670 to a basic 7950 that can be had for under $300? Shouldn't they have compared it to a similarly priced 7970 such as the Sapphire OC? Pretty sure that would have been a more fair and relevant test...

GOOD QUESTION. But they would not do that because they don't want to show that AMD provides better performance at the same pricing. how else can they keep praising Nvidia all the time biggrin.gif

clock for clock GTX 670 is 5% slower than GTX 680 as is the HD 7950 behind the HD 7970. if HD 7970 and GTX 680 are competitors when max overclocked , the same applies to HD 7950 and GTX 670. but hardwarecanucks would have us all believe thats not the case. thumb.gif
