lol at using the old Tomb Raider Benchmarks. Not to mention, NVIDIA cards perform better in the actual gameplay. Using a canned 45 second tech demo is nearly irrelevant compared to the rest of the game. [H]'s testing showed an average of 20% higher FPS's for the 680 over a 7970 and 17% higher fps for the 670 over a 7950
Quote:
The AMD Radeon HD 7950 Boost and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 video cards were both playable at 1080p with FXAA enabled, with all other graphics options set to Ultimate. At these settings the AMD Radeon HD 7950 Boost averaged 38.9 FPS. The only reason the average framerate is below 40 FPS is during the cut scenes at the end, the tessellation and close ups slow the performance down some. The actual gameplay took place at or above 40 FPS. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 still performed 16.7% faster than this with a 45.5 FPS average.

Enabling 2X SSAA caused even slower performance, with average framerates dropping by about 15 FPS, in to the lower 30's and upper 20's. We can not use SSAA on these video cards at this resolution because it is too demanding when coupled with TressFX. Users will be able to complete the entire game without experiencing outrageous video lag from the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 at 1080p with FXAA enabled. The AMD Radeon HD 7950 Boost provided a slower experience, that made it slightly more difficult to operate through the level.

that's based on the benchmark, which is not representative of the actual gameplay. A short clip of Laura way up close doing absolutely nothing is only used to show off TressFX, something AMD would have their hand in. Gameplay wise, since the last drivers, NVIDIA upped their performance significantly

lol. How is that a fail? They are damn near frame for frame.

Price is the only arguable point of "fail"

Why not buy supercomputer ??!!!!PRICE determines everything in consumer market and quality of a product and with that respect 7950/7970 excels on both performance and price/performance over 670/680
post #115 of 168
7790 is 20-25% faster than 650ti and now nvi claims 650ti boost will compete with 7850 -same cheap foul air from nvi

http://blogs.amd.com/play/2013/03/21/hd-7790-perfect-for-1080p/

hate to know 650ti selling at 7850 price at newegg for so many days until recently you can get the 650 Ti for $139 at Newegg. This card needs to be cheaper. You can also get a 7850 for $179....Now 650 ti boost may perform somewhat better than 7790 with pricing above 7850...that's nvi for you bs

"Nvidia GTX 650 Ti Boost to go against HD 7850":At least according to Nvidia-LOL

It's not all that difficult to find a benchmark that backs up your preconceived notions. The HardOCP review shows the 670 beating the Boost version of the 7950 as well. Draw your own conclusion as to which card is better, but saying Nvidia fails when they actually won is a bit off, I'd say.

I'll be looking forward to seeing benchmarks with FW 314.22.

This debate is pathetic!

Are you not tired of wasting energy arguing which one is better? They are the same freaking crap ( decimal fps difference). The only noticeable difference is a few dollars, THATS ALL.
