Seriously, it is too close to the GTX 680, nvidia will compete with themselves. At least that way nobody will buy GTX 680 and it will be available again
AMD needs that Ghz version really fast, or at least set ref 7970 at $420.
It's like Geforce Ti4200 vs Ti4400
or Geforce 6800GT vs 6800Ultra
well that is so wierd tho, same thing with tahiti and pitcairn happened
i think if anything this only tells us how un-optimized these benchmarks are to the new architectures as it seems certain games reach a certain fps limit and doesnt seem to wanna go higher, you see with pitcarn and tahiti they were 2 different chips with different arrangments memory controller and layout in general, but here its the same gk104 with less shaders and lower clock speed. just impressive as of today but still very wierd
maybe wizz has a say about this?
