[The Tech Report] Radeon HD 7950 vs. GeForce GTX 660 Ti revisited - Page 17  

post #161 of 745
mmmm wth.gif

Must admit I don't know anything about the 660ti, but I was under the impression from the odd review and AMD/Nvidia owners on this site the AMD cards have been smokin the Nvidia cards since 12.11.

And now a 660ti is beating a 7950?

Which is it, lies from AMD or a dodgy review run up to xmas to make uninformed people buy Nvidia? Someone is telling lies.

I would like a OCN 7950 and 660ti owner do an honest benchmark. If these dudes are misleading people it should be known, whichever one it is.

Not sure because this was 12.11 vs 310.54 which dosent make sense.

It's the current 310.70 WHQL canadate that just released Dec 5th that we should be looking at anyway. It changed performance rather nicely. Another reason to add to the list why this review was flawed more than one way, just a little too late.

Well knowing that makes sense why you didn't challenge Brettjv yourself. thumb.gif Yes the 6950 is still a nice card. smile.gif

I would be more than happy to do so. I will have a vanilla evga 660ti next week, and can order any 7950 (which was my plan) that you guys want.

Let me know.

if you can compare the HD 7950 boost stock with GTX 660 Ti stock and both cards at max OC it would be really nice .

This is the card I will have next week
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130809

I can order that Sapphire tomorrow or Saturday.

I will set my OC to 4.0, or whatever needs to be.

I just PM'd brettjv. Maybe we can get something going.

I saw some people wondering at the relative scores, they used an overclocked product, from the article
" The GTX 660 Ti AMP! is currently going for $299.99, even though it's a hot-clocked card. In fact, the Zotac's boost frequency is one of the highest among the GTX 660 Ti cards available. Also, its 6.6 GT/s memory is 10% faster than most of its competitors, even though they cost as much as 350 bucks."

Your testing won't really invalidate this article unless you manage to test frame latencies as well.

Fraps Calc would probably do a good job.
