I feel like this is a very fair assessment. I really can't see a single thing that AMD offers over nVidia. Every argument an AMD fan makes is the same. "Just as good"... "way cheaper"... etc. These are common arguments. However, AMD cards lack CUDA cores and don't process data nearly as efficient for things other than games. There are other examples we could cite but we all know them.

I guess I'm just sick of the AMD vs nVidia and AMD vs Intel arguments. They are pointless. NVidia/Intel > AMD. The whole thing can be summarized by the following:

Haves... and have not's.

Huh? 7970 is better than 680 in almost every aspect.

Indeed and it was like 7 years ago with the xt 2900 so who actually cares not relevant anymore they might try it again.

i think this sentiment applies to everything. everyone complains about stuff that they cant afford or would not pay for. but if they are given the best thing free, who's complaining or making comparisons?

They're still far behind NVIDIA in market share, by almost a 2-to-1 ratio. To wit:
Code:
GPU market share (Source: Jon Peddie Research)

BRAND   Q1'12 Q2'12 Q3'12 Q4'12
-------------------------------
AMD     37.8% 40.3% 35.7% 34.3%
NVIDIA  61.9% 59.3% 64.0% 65.7%

Also of note is that the GTX 670 sold 10% more than the Radeon 7950 and 7970 combined (source: Steam Hardware Survey).

Imagine how much worse the market share would've been if AMD hadn't resorted to those "Never Settle" bundles. Of course those bundles are absolutely killing AMD's margins, but that's a different discussion that I don't have sufficient data to fully outline...

Would you pay more for something if you don't have to, even if you could afford it?
I did, with the Titan..a lesson learned

We certainly get lectured to take responsibility for our actions when making buying decisions about the Titan by a lot of folks.
This is the only industry I know where prices are dictated by the Seller (Nvidia) , and everyone (buyers) is supposed to shut up about it. really, the only industry, and I know a lot of industries

Then you know only a few industries. Really and you keep claiming you're a Titan owner. rolleyes.gif

I'm a little lost here, according to this GTX 780 System Requirements 600 watt or greater power supply with a minimum of 42 amps on the +12 volt rail. I have a FSP Group AURUM GOLD 750W and this tells me it has:

Hybrid Synergy 12V Rail Design Hybrid Synergy design on four 12v rails with max loads (up to 18A on each rail, max 720W of combined power) pledges compatibility to graphics cards and superb system stability.

Is that enough to run this card?

Never too late to start learning about a new industry, eh

That is why I thought 780 would be 700-750$

I'm pretty sure you just did exactly what the op said not to do...

Oh and if you guys wanna see over clocked single and SLI results between the 7970 and 780 just check the link and take 5-10% off the Titan scores:
