That review was biased and unfair to be honest.

Here is the problem with what you said.

You said every single game they tested runs like crap on the 7xxx series card......who's fault is that?

If they where to do the opposite and test games that make the small bus choke then Nvidia guys would cry the exact same statement. So it seems that there are a equal amount of games that make the 7950 choke as there are that make the 660ti choke. So my point being all the AMD guys saying a 7950 will slay and destroy a 660ti is false. Even with its crippled bus the 660ti holds its own and costs less by a few bucks.

Also, I have owned a 7870 and a 660ti and my 660ti clocks as good as my 7870 did, so again its not by any standard a poor overclocker.

If anyone owns a FX-6300 and a 7950 id be willing to do some real comparisons. In the interest of fairness and real peoples benchmarks.

Considering a much better, much more comprehensive review had the 7950 (Ghz and boost) competing and beating the 670 most of the time and the Boost was even going toe to toe with a 680 quite often.

How that can translate to it being equal or less than a 660ti is a bit of a joke...

Funny how some TWIMTBP games run better on AMD.....
post #36 of 745
i still think 7950 is a better buy than 660 ti whether or not what that tech report article is true because the cards were tested at stock clocks.
so both overclocked 7950 would overclock better and jump ahead of the 660 ti in most games.
but however one thing that article proves for sure is that the fact that the 660 ti has 192 bit memory bus width is overplayed a lot because inspite of half the bus width the 660 ti beats or matches the 7950 at stock clocks even at 2560*1440p !!!! and a lot of people were overexaggerating this thing even at 1080p.
nice read though . thanks for posting the article OP thumb.gif

Pretty hard to produce a totally unbiased review - after all, all games appear to have preferences.
Also I disagree that stock performance is irrelevant. The vast majority of people using these cards will have them stock, and I dare to say that even the majority of OCN members run them stock.

The two cards are like a high displacement, high performance engine (7950) vs a small displacement, turbocharged engine (660ti).
Someone will focus on mid-low RPM, someone will focus on 0-60, someone will keep staring at the dyno chart.

In reality even if the 2 machines have similar 0-60, similar max HP etc, might be completely different in nature, thus the decision on "the best" might be down to clearly subjective reasons.

since windows 7 and 8 perform similarly in games without any distinguishable difference in most games i see no reason why using windows 8 is such a big deal.

Care to elaborate why its junk review?

I think its funny, how if the results showed the opposite, people who are calling it junk would be saying instead "its no surprise AMD wins good review."
