is it ture that the 7970 and 680 trade blows?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
having an argument with someone that thinks that the 7970 is no where near the 680 and i say it 50/50 half of the time it does beat the 680 and half of the time it doesn't.

so i was wondering if i could get some proof that the 7970 is on 680 level.

an oc'ed 7950 trade blows with the 680. i would not pair any with the 4100, though.2cents.gif

it think it is safe for me to say that there are more 680s below me than above me in the single card category . . .

And an oc'd 670 trades blows with a 7970 wink.gif

To answer the OP's question , single card =7970 , SLI setup=680 , although they are really close in performance just get whichever is cheaper thumb.gif

They do trade blows quite evenly for the most part. Once you start overclocking the 7970 pulls ahead in more instances than the 680 but they're still quite even for the most part. The 680 is definitely not far ahead of the 7970 by any means.

Also the 7970 generally performs better than the 680 at resolutions over 1080p whele the 680 generally performs better at 1080p or under.

From what I have seen they do trade blows at 1080p or lower and it depends on game in question. Where the 7970 shines is at higher resolutions to the point that the 7970 takes the lead.

So where was you when all the reviews and tech new came out ? biggrin.gif

They are both good cards without a doubt. But the 7970 has the edge and lots of compute power thumb.gif

LOL , I know the feeling , I sold my first Sandy i5 chip for what I paid for it to fund an i7. The i5 clocked stable to 5 ghz on stock cooler 70 degrees , had no idea what a gem it was. Bottom line both are great cards .
