OP at the same clocks HD 7950 is 3 - 6% slower than HD 7970. similar relation between GTX 670 and GTX 680. this is a well known fact. HD 7970 / HD 7950 can match GTX 680 / GTX 670 when running at 100 - 150 mhz lower clocks. all these cards end up quite closely in perf when overclocked. so in terms of price perf the HD 7950 boost is unbeatable.

But that's the winning argument.

I'm just trying to tell the truth...when I buy a 670, 670 still can beat the 7970 ( IOW, before 12.11)....after a 3 month, AMD has released their 'big' driver which improves their card performance significantly.

660TI is just too expensive for what you get. Tough to beat the 7950 for the money and the TI prices are too close to the 670 not to make that upgrade. I went back and forth a bunch of times before getting the 670s and that decision was made based on a rebate on Newegg that was bogus when I made the purchase.

After AMD's new game bundle, 7950. Most definitely.

See how we can keep going up the price chain?

I vote 7950 since you can OC it and it doesn't support Nvidia and their voltage lock.

I agree. Again a "which one" thread gets trolled, I mean turned into a spend more money thread. doh.gif
I have the Gigabyte windforce 7950, unless I'm absolutely torturing it it doesn't go above 60 degrees.
Aparently AMD voltages have been showing up seemingly randomly locked. Or is it new stock cards that are locked? Can't remember, sorry.

I went from 6950s that sounded like a jet engine at take off to an XFX 7970Ghz Black edition and it was silent in comparison. The coolers look fairly similar so I bet the sound level is about the same.

I think this is the one i'm going to end up buying http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202007

I think i'll get a better oc out of it. Plus I like the sapphire presentation.

Why not the HIS boost clock 7950? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161420 I have it and it's amazing for it's price, virtually silent when gaming, barely breaks 50c under load and HIS has very good RMA service in my personal experience. A word of warning though this card is LONG make sure you have enough space, it fit in my Asgard II ok.
