[The Tech Report] Radeon HD 7950 vs. GeForce GTX 660 Ti revisited - Page 44  

post #431 of 745
Here are the most recent numbers from Techpowerup at 1920 x 1200 (12/7/2012):
http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Club_3D/HD_7870_jokerCard_Tahiti_LE/6.html

Alan Wake
7950 Win


Arkham City
7950 Win


Battlefield 3
7950 Win


Borderlands 2
660ti Win


Crysis

Crysis 2

Star Craft 2

Shogun 2

Skyrim
7950 Win


Sleeping Dogs
7950 Win


Sniper Elite V2
7950 Win


Stalker COP
7950 Win


World of Warcraft
660ti Win



Now take a look at the tally below. Really look at the games that each card excels in. Can you see that the 7950 excels in games that tend to be graphically demanding? The 660ti seems to do better in console ports and Blizzard games. This says to me that the 7950 is a far more muscular card and is beating the 660ti in 11 of 18 games while running conservative clocks.

In either of these two scenarios, the balance shifts further into the 7950s favor.
1) Increase resolution
2) Overclock the cards.

We know an overclocked 7950 now edges out an overclocked 680, so the 660ti is going to be left in the dust. I just don't see why anyone would choose a 660ti over a 7950 at the current prices.

And you can make a review buy selecting all the games that GTX660 Ti wins and 2-3 that are close but HD 7950 wins and say GTX660 Ti is superior. biggrin.gif

It's hilarious that the Nvidia boys won't give a moments thought to what would happen if you clocked the 7950 at the same clocks. The 660ti's clocks aren't even that high lol and it needed it just to stay abreast! But nooo, we must judge at the face value of the farce! It's unfair to imagine their respective performance figures on even ground. Hahahaa!

Lol I know right. There logic is truly flawed there. I mean, I recommend the 7950 over the 670, now days especially with the 12.11 and its price point. I just don't get it, especially there explanation for the 660ti winning:
Quote:
Pop back and forth between the 99th percentile and average FPS plots, and you'll see two different stories being told. The FPS average suggests near-parity performance between the 7950 and the GTX 660 Ti, with a tiny edge to the GeForce. The 99th percentile frame time, though, captures the impact of the Radeon's frame latency issues and suggests the GTX 660 Ti is easily the superior performer. That fact won't be a surprise to anyone who's read this far.

the funny part is the 660ti was not even meant to compete with the 7950, it was ment to compete with 7870, think about that. lol

An overclocked 7870 will compete with a 7950 pretty easily, just as an overclocked 660 Ti will compete with GTX 670 or a 7950. That's all the TR review proves. Anyone that reads any further into it than that... well, you're doing it wrong. rolleyes.gif

the GTX 660 Ti was meant as a stock HD 7950 (800 Mhz) competitor. and it easily achieved that goal at launch at 300 bucks. But with AMD's launch of HD 7950 boost and the 12.11 drivers the HD 7950 boost is on par with GTX 670 and sells for 300 - 340 at the same price that custom GTX 660 Ti models like MSI power edition, Gigabyte Windforce3x, EVGA FTW, ZOTAC AMP are selling. So what has changed is AMD has improved their competitiveness across their entire stack. at the same price points AMD cards are faster.

In case you haven't checked lately, all those 660 Tis are under $300 now, some of them are as low as $270 after rebate.
