First off, everything released in the last decade and more has been overclockable, the only real way to compare them effectively and fairly is to first compare how the company releases the product. I am not an NVidia fanboy, nor am I an AMD Fanboy. I went NVidia works better at higher resolutions as SLI seems to have far less microstutter issues and I run 2x 1440p monitors. Stating a fact that the performance of the GTX680 was higher than the performance of the 7970 when it was released does not make me a fanboy for any company.

How is that any different than pretending that clock for clock is all that matters, or overclocked is all that matters?

Firmware updates, which is all the GE comes to, is just that. You can flash a 7970 to the GE bios AFAIK, so there is literally nothing but software release which increased the performance of the cards.

Exactly. The 7XX series is a long way off as far as I've read and Titan won't really affect anything other than the PR campaign...

SOURCE where did people read this? Are you talking about the sweclockers article? This is the third person tonight that said "long time away" and now I'm curious where you're getting this info. I"ve been following the release rumors closely, and I really don't know how people are concluding Q4 for the 700 series. As I've only seen a single article even drag NVidia into the delayed conversation.

Sweclockers yes. Nothing official of course but I don't see Nvidia releasing 7XX anytime close to Titan. Just my hunch...

The lack of reading comprehension here is incredible. AMD stated that 7970 will be the faster GCN card in 2013, with a new architecture coming out in Q4.

There will be a faster AMD card than the 7970 ghz. A different architecture means that it's not GCN.

If that source is correct, sure. Still, nothing before Q4 as far as I've read...

The source article says fastest single GPU. Only the summary mentions GCN.

while the HD 7970 GHz Edition will continue on as their fastest single GPU card throughout 2013.

I don't expect anything new from either side (minus Titan of course) anytime soon but I'd be shocked if we didn't see the 8970 and 780 release by Christmas...

... Just after Titan would be the perfect time to offer a 15% bump on the 680.. Titan at $900 dollars and nearly unattainable gives you at 35% boost, while 500$ gets you 15-20%. Maxwell will be the large (potential) increase, but on the curtails of Titan would be the perfect time to release a new series of cards.

Not to mention there has not been any new news...Releasing the TITAN makes it more unlikely
