Since the 670 is priced the same as the 7970, does that mean they're now direct competitors?

Since the 680 is priced so high, it must mean it's performance is on a whole new level huh?

Even lower.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007709%20600030348%20600315498%20600311818&IsNodeId=1&name=GeForce%20GTX%20660%20Ti

The Galaxy 660 Ti is @ $249.99 after rebate, which actually makes the card a great piece of kit at that price. The Zotac 660 Ti AMP that was tested is at $279.99 after rebate.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007709%20600100181%20600286767%20600286739&IsNodeId=1&name=Radeon%20HD%207950

The cheapest HD 7950 right now is a PowerColor HD 7950 @ $274.99 after rebate. That being said, the 7950 does come with a very sweet game bundle, so if that's important to you, the HD 7950 is the better value.

If the games are not important, then the value is, unfortunately, a toss up between the cards. There is no outright winner. The only thing you guys should be happy about is that AMD and Nvidia are now locked in a price war... and that's a REALLY good thing for us. thumb.gif

Without counting rebates these are the nos.

GTX 660 Ti cards. 6 cards below 300,, 7 cards at 300 and 11 cards above 300.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100006662&IsNodeId=1&Description=GTX%20660%20Ti&bop=And&Order=PRICE&PageSize=100

HD 7950 cards. 2 cards below 300 , 2 cards at 300 , 11 cards above 300

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100006662&IsNodeId=1&Description=HD%207950&bop=And&Order=PRICE&PageSize=100

the majority of GTX 660 Ti cards are at 300 or above. so they are in the same price range.

you just posted proof the 660ti has more cards under 300?

the fact is the majority of GTX 660 Ti cards are at 300 or above. 6 out of 24 cards. When 75% of the GTX 660 Ti SKUs sell at 300 or above you cannot call the GTX 660 Ti a sub 300 dollar card.

Dimaggio is defending his GTX 660 Ti very honestly. but if he wants a reality check he should take a competition with bruennis Gigabyte HD 7950. the results would be very ugly for his card biggrin.gif

Actually, $299.99 is under $300, so it is more accurate to say that 13 of 24 are below $300, making it a sub-$300 card. And if you count rebate, it's 18 of 24. If you want to get all specific up in here, that is.

You're the one making the big deal about how many cards are what price. I was just trying to let you know that many of the specific overclocked cards you mentioned, like the AMP!, are all under $300 now, not $300-340 like you said. You don't have to be so defensive, not every comment is an attack on AMD.

Seems you guys have very selective memory. Just a few months ago 660TI and nvidia in general was stomping 7950, now with a driver update things shifted whos to say it wont shift again?

Because Kepler, in the guise of GK104, was always meant to be a mid-end architecture. How does Nvidia overcome that barrier? By throwing tons of clock speed at it. Kepler has been virtually tapped out since the release of Kepler half a year ago. The only reason that we are seeing ANY sort of performance increase is due to driver optimization for each individual game. In case you don't remember, the 12.11 drivers brought an 8% on average performance boost ACROSS THE BOARD. That means virtually every game out there got a pretty decent little bump in performance on every GCN-based AMD GPU. That is a good driver. AMD apparently learned how to use the architecture better than it was before. I have yet to see such an amazing driver from nvidia for Kepler.

Call me when Nvidia has a eureka moment like that. It's never going to happen. Kepler is tapped out until the next iteration of the architecture is released. All that's left is optimizing it for each individual game, which AMD is also doing.
