Seeing how a factory overclocked GTX 680 still beats it and a mildly overclocked one at that.
I see this degenerating rapidly. All I'll say is the example you link is the TGT which is at 1100MHz+. The example i gave is at 1050MHz max.
If you want equal clocks, try this:
Given the green bar is at 1100MHz, it's a fairer comparison. So let's not fight. Let's agree, clock for clock, neither team win this one? Or should we say, both teams top cards win.
And the 6GB memory on a single card does jack shit, just like the 4GB on the TGT card.

I agree completely but it validates the speed of the 7970. Both my 7970's are stock pcb's and run at 1050 without voltage adjustments. Yes, the GHz editions are AMD's backwards mistake - should have released them first.
lol, just saw your's are at 1300 - respect!
