It looks to me that those complaining about the results have won the debate.  So I kinda agree that it's "endless" and just becoming an endurance thing. 

 

Recap:

 

Win8 used not Win7

Different areas of a game will show one card being better over another

Highly overclocked 660ti competing against stock clock/boosted 7950

The 660ti costs as much as a 7950 (which still has OC headroom from stock clocks).  So no savings there.

The free games being offered for a 7900 series card that isn't offered for the other. 

We can repeat the same stuff with a 7870 LE (at 1000MHz).  So this becomes a very moot point, LOL.

And any other posts I've missed in this thread

 

But most of all, lets not forget:

660ti clock rate is 1033MHz/1111MHz

7950 clock rate is  850MHz/950MHz (note: you don't have to buy this version to achieve 950MHz+ core clock rate)

 

Also, if you take a lower spec card and overclock it vs a stock clock higher end card the lower spec card might, gasp, win a few benchmarks.  What a new concept.  doh.gif

 

 

I like to see more reviews using 660ti vs 7870LE handlebarssmiley.png

You're ignoring the fact that GCN is completely new architecture and just might need some time to be optimized?
And you're also ignoring the fact that NV just released a driver that they themselves call "an essential upgrade for GTX gamers"

If you are limiting your FPS to 62 to "save energy" you're doing it wrong. Without vsync, you want higher frame rate to reduce (not remove) the magnitude of tearing.
Do you even understand what dynamic vsync does? To get it to work, you need to set your FPS minimum to smooth things out completely. If you cap it at 40 FPS and your FPS min is 30, every time it drops below 40 you'll still get stutter. Good for you if you think that's a good solution.

Son, go learn what Dynamic Vsync does. It is not the same as Adaptive Vsync. You don't set it to 62 either... doh.gif
FPS limiting and Dynamic Vsync are two different things...

He's probably referring to the fact that early adopters of 7900 cards had to wait 6 months to even get "decent" working drivers after launch. The performance boost of the new GeForce drivers isn't anywhere near as drastic as the 12.11 drivers are either.

Yes driver for HD 7970 where not good until 12.6. For me i did not have any problem with games. All the problems i had where windows problem like flickering, LCD would not turn on.

The only major problem that we had was the clocks that stayed in 3d mode and the lcd would not turn on.

Kids (and I can say that cause I'm 40+ y.o. wink.gif), you need to knock it off with the snarkiness and name calling (fanboys, etc).

Keep it civil and polite, please.

So, can any 7950 owners beat my GPU score here?

This is why I love my great memory biggrin.gif

Man you have such a golden card though drool.gif

Going through the list of 7950 owners and there clock speeds im seeing 1170 and 1200 and if im reading yours well, its 1060. Not sure if im reading well

3dmark still does not read them correctly. You have to look at his graph, its 1391.
Also I have seen my score bested by quite a bit of 7950's..

ah ok, kinda new at this. Impressive! i doubt an 7950 can overclock that far. maybe a 7970?
