Did the 760 turn the 670 into a 680?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
About a year ago, the 670 was widely seen as the best bang-for-your-buck high-end GPU on the market. AMD hadn't had its drivers update yet and the GTX 700's weren't around. It made the 670 an obvious choice for a GPU just under the price tag of a 7970 with only slightly less performance, hell, it could even surpass a 7970 back then. The 680 was far more expensive and only slightly more powerful.

Now the 760 is out, the 7950 had its drivers update along with the 7970. The 7950 is much cheaper than the 670 and offer comparable performance, the 7970 has a comparable price and offers better performance. The 760 is a good deal cheaper and again, it offers comparable performances. With that said, it seems the 670 has joined the 680 on worst GPU for price/performance as of right now.

Is there any incentive to get a 670? 7950 is pretty much equal with a lower price tag and more OC headroom. If you don't wanna go the AMD route, you can take a 760 for much less and get performances that are within 10% of a 760.

680=770 with less power and just a bit more performance

Don't you mean the other way around? The 770 is faster than the 680 from what I know.
