The MSI Card that was available in the store when OP was buying his card is a non boost twin frozr card that runs at 830/5000Mhz
out of the box
The whole debate was between 3 particular cards that were available in the store:
EVGA GTX 670 FTW 1006 / 6208 MHz
GALAXY GTX 670 GC 1006 / 6008 MHz
MSI Radeon 7970 Twin Frozr 830 / 5000 MHz

The chart i posted is taken from the 670 ftw review dated Jan 24th 2013
so not exactly from 1987LINK
On the other hand you have posted heaven benchmark results that nobody can play. Just like any other synthetic benchmark.
Lets sum up what we all know:
1. GTX 670 GC (1006 / 6008 MHz) is faster than MSI 7950 Twin frozr (830 / 5000 MHz) out of the box
2. Both Cards Can be overclocked
3. GTX 670 GC is $40 more expensive (after rebates)
4. GTX 670 GC has less vram - 2Gb vs 3Gb (which is not much of a problem for 1080p gaming)
5. GTX 670 GC supports PhysX (available only in particular games)

Yeap there is, and that anomaly is called updated nvidia drivers.

Agreed, some individuals forget to simply respect others and other's opinions, only because they think they are right.Edited by ekg84 - 3/25/13 at 10:18am
