I'm sorry, but I'll take the word of the chip stepping designation by the Manufacturer over the "guarantee" of an AMD fan.
Get over it, your Idols at reviews sites got it wrong. The chip has a slightly higher stepping.
In fact, some reviews, did get it:
The current GTX 680 has the GK104-400-A2 core, and the 425 implies some slight optimisation and changes.
GeForce GTX 770 is based on GPU GK104-425-A2 - a slightly updated version
GK104-425 A2 core which is similar to the GK104-400 A2
So there you have it, logic
: It's exactly what I said, the card is "almost an overclocked 680", almost, not exactly.
So, you could say it's an overclocked 680, with a slight variation, perhaps a few overclocking efficiency fixes.
What mainly gets me is that some people are so obsessed with promoting a company that they ridicule themselves and they harm the reputation of the Company. i.e. it's perfectly viable
to say that it's an overclocked 680 (with some small improvements) so going on a tantrum about how it is "wrong" that the Manufacturer clearly gave it a higher stepping Designation, just harms your reputation and the reputation of what you are promoting without even denying anything great (it's not like the improvement must be that big, they are probably minor).
It's frustrating that I'm not even an "NVIDIA fan", I'm equally looking at all options.
