Nobody here can argue how great the 7970 is. As a former owner with a 1285 MHz overclock, I agree.
But looking at the chart you posted, the 780 is 14% faster than the 380x. You call that closing the gap and catching the 780.
The 380x is 18% faster than the 770. You call that as making the 770/680 no longer relevant.
A difference of 4% makes one card legendary and one card irrelevant. That doesn't really make sense.
Like I said, nobody can argue the 7970 wasn't the better card by far.
Not to mention the newer graphs which likely use newer drivers aren't so lopsided.
There was likely something wrong with the original testing suite.
It appears something was wrong with that driver, as the driver change brought Nvidia's performance back in line where it should have been.Edited by tajoh111 - 2/27/16 at 10:31am
