SKY, Quick question (I may have missed it in your review) Did you manage to do the benchmarks with AMD's controversial bios update for the HD7950?
Nope. But we have committed to have a full review of the updated AMD card once we can properly evaluate its position within the market (IE: price, availability, etc.)

The picture is clear me thinks - 660Ti for 1080p/1200p, 7950 for anything higher.
Bingo.

The only problem i see with ALOT of the reviews today is alot are with modded/tweaked cards. I honestly miss the days when a reviewer could have generic/oem card a vs card b in baseline comparision reviews ... overclocking has screwed with getting true preformance numbers in both the cpu & gpu market nowadays .. :shok::blarg:

Those acoustic levels are yummy. I'm thinking I ought to spring for one of these and give my ears a break from my 470.

Ours was a reference version. Actually, Superclocked but with a reference BIOS installed.

Though I agree with Sky you are obviously very biased to AMD as I am as well but toms hardware might of run into the same thing I did... for anything under DX11 the 7870 got a major leg up on the 660ti but with new drivers and the fact the 660ti from MSI anyways is sooooooo ******* silent its a no brainer to go for the 660ti over the 7870 unless you mostly do last gen gaming. If you have any specific games you want tested comment on my user review of the 660ti and I will see what I can do. I own the 660ti from MSI as well as the 7870 CUII asus and 670 CUII from Asus plus waiting for my RMA 7970 and 7950 Asus CUII to get back after a bad PSU killed them both.

The 660ti PE from MSI is awesome in my opinion but thats not saying the 7870 is not a bad card as it is actually pretty well priced :D

However you want to spin it, once again this website out of all the tech press found results in favour of Nvidia.

Even anandtech had the Ti behind (slightly). Some places like Toms and HT4U found the 660 Ti was slower than the 7870 -



ASUS GTX 660 Ti DC2 Top - NVIDIAs GeForce GTX 660 Ti ist da - 3D-Performance 1920 x 1080 mit Antialiasing (Seite 40) - HT4U.net

When a tech site is constantly going against the grain with these, it is bound to open it up to accusations of bias. Did any other site find the 660 Ti faster at 1080p? See, this is where the problem lies.

Not a bad card at all. Although I would have liked for the review to include some numbers in SLI. It might do a constant 120 FPS in BF3, ultra.

Great review. Maybe I missed it in the review but I'm curious if this card is using the same PCB and physical layout as the GTX 670.

I'm curious cause I was thinking about picking this card up or maybe a pair of them but I would love to put them under water with full covered blocks.
