-5%/3 = 7970GHz is 1.7% faster. Whoopdidoooo. rolleyes.gif

Considering that the 7970GHz use almost 45W more than GTX 680 (209W vs 166W) to be only 2% faster in average, thats pretty dissappointing don`t you think? wink.gif

It's only safe to assume this for another few days. When the GTX Titan comes out it will be the most powerful single gpu for probably 8+ months or until maxwell which could be 1-2 years.

So the point of this thread was to ask every ones opinion? Or convince them what you think is fastest?

Consider it's power consumption to compute performance ratio vs. Kepler. Now which card is pretty disappointing? wink.gif

Also 7970 GE fastest single gpu card currently available. Not to mention it's a good bit cheaper then the gtx 680. So you lose power savings, gain some gaming performance, and rock the competition in compute. I'd go with the 7970 over the 680 any day.

Games don`t require computation power so a 7970GHz actually consumes 26% more power to display 2% more FPS. Kepler is a living proof of that. Nvidia offer 680 for those who game and Quadro for those who GPGPU. Kepler is designed for games and therefor more efficient on gaming.

Of course GCN is way better than Kepler in GPGPU, but that is rarely ever the question wink.gif

Why wouldn't you want both in one affordable card, or am i to assume you'd rather have someone who does both on one machine spend 450 on a gtx 680 and then some ridiculous X amount of dollars on one of nvidia's quadro cards? No thanks. rolleyes.gif

You should read this. This is with 12.8 drivers. Expect higher performance now. 7970 is more than 2% faster. If you think not you are just blind. Gtx 680 is a capable card but not in the levels of a 7970

Don`t get me wrong. GCN is a ton better value for those who use proffesional software (GPGPU). But since I and 95% of gamers don`t ever do those task, its a moot point for us.
Quadro/Firepro cards is again 1000x better than the consumer GCN GPUs so its not like you waste all the money if you go that route,

Oh I`m not gonna play the "throw-various-graphs-from-different-reviews-game" just to try to convince the other one which one is the best. Sorry mate but I`m too old for that crap and I`ve wasted enough time on that before. Conclusion is that you get different results depending on what review you read, what drivers they use, what part of the game they tested etc etc.

Many reviews have shown that 7970GHz and 680 trade blows. You can of course disagree but I won`t use my energy on changing your mind smile.gif

http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/EVGA/GTX_670_FTW_Signature_2/27.html

HD 7970 Ghz is 2% faster at 1680 x 1050 , 4% faster at 1920 x 1080 and 9% faster at 2560 x 1600 than GTX 680. GTX 680 is slower when you take the most demanding games.

there are games where the GTX 680 falls behind because of the 256 bit memory design. its a double edged sword. what gives the GTX 680 power efficiency kills it in memory bandwidth hungry games like sleeping dogs, metro 2033, crysis / crysis warhead.

Look at sleeping dogs high AA at 1600p or 1080p extreme aa

http://www.hardocp.com/article/2012/10/16/asus_matrix_hd_7970_platinum_video_card_review/4#.URvtFfKyN8E

Metro 2033 (DOF with MSAA 4x) ,

http://www.legitreviews.com/article/2068/8/

with the HD 7970 Ghz you have the resources to avoid bandwidth bottlenecks which cost you die size and power. But the fact is in all scenarios the HD 7970 Ghz performs admirably. the GTX 680 gets left far behind when it runs into bottlenecks.

EDIT: As is known the Geforce Titan is going to take the single GPU crown and will be uncontested as the top single GPU.
