the original price for the hd7970 was $549 it is now $479 so yes it had a HUGE price drop, unfortunately for me i bought it while it was 550, but i dont care xD, drivers are definetly the cultprit because the HD7970 is definetly superior hardware, 4.3 billion transisitors versus 3.5 billion in the 680 more gddr5 memory allowication and 384bit which i dont know why nvidia went back down to 256bit they even had 512bit at one point like the 295 i believe it was, if amd had the same team nvidia does for drivers you can bet your ass the HD7970 would crush the 680 in every benchmark possible
