With BF3 ultra settings 1920x1200 the 660ti has 20% increased performance over the 7950. Hope that 7950 can overclock damn high just to reach the stock 660ti.
And before you say it the 660ti can overclock too!

Here bro,

MSI 660TI using Twin Frozr IV clocked at 1020+/1502
Sapphire Vapor-X 7950 at 850/1250 and 950/1250 with the Boost Bios

Not only does the 7950 overclock past 1GHz almost guaranteed, but it can outperform the 660TI at lower clocks. Not to mention the fact that the 660TI gets more and more VRAM starved at higher resolutions.

A free copy of Borderlands 2, and I needed a good folding GPU. But yea, most people would be better off with a 7950, they're about 8-10% faster on average.

Don't cherry pick reviews, read enough reviews and you'll see the 7950 has an advantage on average, whether or not it and the 660ti are OC'd.

And just so to prove I'm not biased:

The 7950 is only 10% faster at max overclock vs max overclock. This is reflected in its price. You won't be finding incredible overclockers at $300

For 1440p the 7950 is the better choice no question, but not 1080p

Wondering how much % faster is your 7950 @ stock vs max OC @ 1920x1080?

Only 10% faster? For the same price... rolleyes.gif I know which one I'd buy.


As you can see here....http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-660-ti-benchmark-review,3279-11.html

HD 7950 > 660TI

660TI = HD 7870 (they evenly trade blows)


So...Back to the question, why the hell would you get a 660 TI? An overclocked HD 7870 is just as good as an overclocked 660TI but $40-50 cheaper.

660TI vs 670 vs HD 7950 (all overclocked)...Who else feels bad for GTX 670 owners?

Most of those reviewers run benchmarks without cranking AA to max. With AA maxed out, 7950 destroys 660ti.

what you mean by "max aa"? 16x AA? if thats the case that's a waste as 4x AA does the job mainly and it's not really as hindering...
