GTX 670 1.6% +0.25%
HD 7970 0.6% +0.0%
GTX 680 1.24% +0.24%
GTX 660 Ti 0.50% +0.50%
HD 7950 0.46% +0.10%
HD7870 0.48% +0.14
I mean really in just 1 month 660 Ti has catched up with AMD cards that have been 9 months in the market*. It's simply no contest there.
And I'd say it's all AMD's fault an no one else's, AMD is better value NOW, no doubt, but at launch of all those Nvidia cards, Nvidia's value was much much better and you just can't let the brand with strongest recognition have such an impact on reviews.
*It's also significative that 20%+ of AMD cards' volume has happened this past month, that is, after price reductions.
