wow I don`t think you can read either..
While I admit that these results are a bit strange, you should keep in mind that different scenarios can yield different results. Unless you use the exact same scene, benchmarks will not necessarily be comparable. Maybe techreport picked a worst case scenario for AMD by chance, who knows?
Do we even know what scenes techspot and hardocp are benchmarking? Indoor, outdoor?
Seriously, is that the best you can do? This qoute above is your answer to the high res benchmarks that i asked you about (see spoiler for the question)... again.. how is the poxy 660ti beating the 7950 in high res when the 680 couldn't? no amount of outside scene is going to change that.. so stop with your garbage and go away or.READ THE SPOILER AND TRY AGAINWarning: Spoiler!

You seem to also have missed some of the points the members here are providing. Disregarding the frame time graphs, look at the Frames per Second metric. While it is true that TR's specific testing is unique, the Frames per Second measurement should be in line in terms of actual videocard standing compared to other reviews. You shouldn't end up with something like GTX660Ti beating HD7970 on average or you would know something has gone terribly wrong in the review. Let's take a look at actual frame rates in at least 2 games where things are way off.
When I look at Medal of Honor Warfighter testing, the actual frames per second are faster for GTX660Ti at
*gasp* 2560x1440 max. Then I go and check how the actual FPS compares in other reviews:
2560x1600 7950 boost beats GTX670:
2560x1600 7950 boost ties GTX670:
Doesn't it strike you odd how GTX660Ti is beating a 950mhz HD7950 in frames per second at high resolution in
MoH:W when no one else reports this?
What about Skyrim at high resolutions?
HD7950 boost is 44% faster in this review with AA:
In this review HD7950 boost beats GTX680 and is much faster than 660Ti:
Same in this review:
In TR's review, GTX660Ti beats HD7950 in Skyrim and everyone else shows it beating GTX680 in Skyrim and
thrashing GTX660Ti. You can ask Skyrim players and they will tell you at 2560x1440 or 2560x1600, HD7950 is
faster than GTX680 in this game.
I think you are starting to get the picture that even the framerates make no sense in some of those games
compared to what everyone else reports. You have to ask yourself if the testing is valid or something else
is the problem. The results are too much different from users who own the cards and countless other
Also, this should have struck you as a red flag right away - HD7950/7970/7970Ghz have been faster in games at high resolutions than GTX600 series. HD7950 boost is actually 22% faster than GTX660Ti at 2560x1600 on average across more twice as many tested games in other reviews. Look how recent this review is too:
Don't you find it odd that HD7950 boost goes from 22% faster at high rez vs. GTX660Ti to way slower in TR's
review? That doesn't strike you as extremely unusual, especially when GTX660Ti gets a win in Skyrim, a game
that are completely dominated by AMD at high resolutions?
