Yeah on gaming a stock 280x/7970 use the same watts as a 680/770 or roughly 10-20 more.
Do you not see what i did here?
Waiting for a 3rd person angle...
Same thing 480 vs 5870................................
I just made you do it with Kepler and GCN, hence the words i typed awhile back about reviews.....
Still, continue to say a 480 is power hungry, when a 7970 consumes the same and if not more when overclocked vs overclocked.
You hear me whistle now as you beat yourself and turn in circles, i can play you easy
Final answer, heat/power consumption, get the card then test, stop looking at reviews for these specific things.Edited by amd655 - 10/20/13 at 11:02am
