What are the world's fastest SINGLE gpu cards on a single PCB Besides Titan- As of 3/8/13.

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Cant seem to find anything recent but with TODAY'S drivers updates etc and right out of the box stock clocks which are the fastest Single GPU cards in order from strongest to weakest available now .... Other than the GTX Titan which I'm sure everyone knows that it currently holds that crown along side the sky high price tag.

It's gonna be either the 680 or 7970, obviously. Either card will pull ahead in different games, applications, etc. There isn't gonna be a definitive answer to this question really, and anyone who tells you differently is either ignorant or a fanboy. In most cases they are one in the same.

The real question to ask yourself is which card will be better suited for MY needs and which model of said card provides the most value for my dollar.

For a single card, I'd go with the 7970 Toxic. Any 7970 with stock clocks of 1050 or better would be my choice. I had a 7970 PowerColor Vortex II with dual 8 pin connectors and it was an absolute terror. I believe it's stock clocks were 1050 or 1100.

This 680 has stock clocks of just north of 1.2ghz.

Why would you buy an enthusiast level GPU and NOT overclock it though ? Seems a bit foolish to me, but that's only my humble opinion and is not a slight to you personally. Just doesn't make sense to me in general. redface.gif

were you looking to buy a card? most of the 680's are great.

@ King

A little in more depth would be appreciated.... It's obvious that the 680/7970 are second fastest but what particular sub models are faster? With latest drivers.

Ex GTX 680 Lightning, 7970 Ghz Toxic model etc.... there are so many sub models that are overclocked variants of the base models my question is which are the fastest of the fastest in order from strongest to weak.....

Ive been reading and looking up for answers but there are so many mixed responses that it seems like there is nothing official... other than Titan dominating everything... Still I want to know other than titan what are the fastest single GPU cards.


@ F1ynn

yes currently I want the fastest available card OTHER than Titan, whether its Nvidia or AMD I have no preference. Simply saying "680" or "7970" isnt sufficient enough what I want to know is what SUB model is the BEST.

The ROG Platinum...

I've had several through my hands and all were +1250/1800 cards.

Out of the box performance between cards, it's safe to say the card with the highest clock speeds will be the fastest.
So you really don't need a hierarchy list from us.

Never said I wasnt going to overclock, dont confuse me for "stock peasants" trust me I will overclock.

There has to be hundreds, if not thousands of threads on this subject available on Google.

If you're looking for the top single-GPU card variants available, your choices are simple. GTX 680 if you like NVIDIA, and 7970 if you like AMD. They're roughly equivalent to each other, with one earning higher benchmarks than the other in different titles. As for who has the highest clock out of the box, it's really a moot point. With a single GPU, single card (e.g. no SLI or Crossfire), you're only talking a few FPS difference between the fastest stock cards and reference cards.

My pick for top GTX 680 would be the EVGA Classified series. There might be one or two with a few MHz higher clock, but I know and trust EVGA's warranty and industry stability.

My pick for top 7970 would be a Sapphire Toxic variant.


Your pick at this point comes down to how many slots you want to take up in your case, what you want the heatsink/fan assembly to look like, and price. LOL.

"Thousands" Since Feburary, after Titan was released? Mind you I mentioned with latest drivers... I mean sure a few months back It was easy to say the 680 dominated but that has changed with drivers....

I just want to know that with recent drivers from both camps which are the better cards. and why lol? I don't get whats so funny.

@grunion the Matrix is impossible to find at this point, same goes for the Toxic model.

To be honest I want something that's a bit more "real" and in stock in major retailers.... not these Unicorn cards that are impossible to find for sale anywhere.

The 7970 Lightning in your sig you just sold is gonna be one of the 5 best cards in the world, especially because of how they overclock. If you are looking for the fastest, I can't understand why you would sell that one. If you are planning to overclock, either the 680 or 7970 Lightning would be the card I would go with. There are lots of people in the 680 Lightning club who are flashing their cards and getting to 1400+ on air. That's pretty damn impressive.

As far as which is best, as I stated before, all of these cards mentioned above are gonna be so closely bunched together in terms of performance it's almost silly to split hairs. You need to be shopping for what's best suited for your needs and where the value is for your dollar.

Hold on there buddy, that was sold 5 months ago. I had no choice at the time I was moving overseas and was strapped for cash at the time being. I haven't played PC games since that time frame.
