My 7950@ 1140/5900 is faster then my 680 @1270/6700, i KNOW VERY WELL, i had 680 till 2 weeks ago, no need to prove anything, think what you like.
We come from one and the same mold
I had a high-end 680, the MSI 680 Lightning, not joke 680s and even at 1372/7100 I can attest that my Gigabyte 7950 @ 1280/7200 is faster... I, too, know this very well

How is a single game more relevant than an index containing most of the modern games and
your precious Crysis?
79XX are faster than what
? All the Keplers? So are you really saying 7950 is faster than 680 in almost all demanding games period
? You will have to offer a whole lot of evidence to back that claim up. A lot more than internet can offer right now, if you ask me.
Yes, a good clocking 7950 will be faster than a good clocking normal 680
. A good clocking 680 Lightning will be very competitive with a good clocking 7950. It's as simple as that. I highly suggest you pick one up and see for yourself seeing as your view won't budge

A game like Crysis is still considered important because its extremely demanding and bandwidth hungry . BF3 gives us an idea of performance using a state of the art DX 11 deferred rendering engine like Frostbite 2. Metro 2033 is extremely demanding on DX11 graphics cards even without DOF. With DOF which is a compute shader it is a graphics card killer and really stresses bandwidth . Witcher 2 is a DX9 game which is very demanding on all GPUs with a supersampling AA mode.
Games like Crysis, Crysis Warhead, Crysis 2, BF3, Metro 2033, Witcher 2, Shogun 2, Anno 2070, Alan Wake, Batman AC, Sleeping Dogs are demanding and difficult to max out at 1600p and run at 60 fps. These are more relevant than a Diablo 3 or Dishonored which any mid range card like HD 7850 can run at 60 fps at 1600p. HD 7970 Ghz is faster in the majority of these demanding games and thats where the performance counts.
