I'm not that much interested in single synthetic benchmark runs because who knows what got tweaked with them
. What I'm interested in is overall gaming performance across a wide variety of games.
There is absolutely zero bias in my view in this matter. I've had way more AMD cards than Nvidia cards. For this GPU generation, I wanted to make absolutely sure I got the best enthusiast bang-for-buck choice. That was and is a competition between 290 and 780 and after testing both extensively, the 780 took it home. The 290 isn't far behind though and if one gets lucky with the OC potential, it might even pull ahead of an average 780. Average vs average, it's usually a narrow victory for the 780. Really high resolutions, CF and heavy BF4 emphasis are the exceptions IMHO.
edit: look at the postings i contributed in your review thread. you seemed to have ignored them.
I didn't ignore them. They just didn't provide anything new beyond my own testing for the purpose I just described.
