They must of been Harvesting the BullDozer's as well..
how is it worthless? maybe to you bud since this card is sidegrade, dont be hatin cuz you spent way more for same results
^ lol point well spoken
Wow, extreme, frothing-at-the-mouth, fanboism? Nice!
Uh, by the way, which company has the most powerful graphics card for the last 3 years or so?
That AMD didn't have a single-GPU card that competed directly with the GTX 580 doesn't mean squat if they still put out the fastest single graphics card. In your opinion, nVidia is better because of that single little detail. Guess what. The vast majority of users don't care. The vast majority of users won't spend $550 on a card. And there are AMD cards priced similarly to the GTX 580 that are very competitive, such as the 6870x2. Oh wait, for the same money that card outperforms the GTX 580. Except it has 2 GPUs.
So in your opinion, that makes nVidia a maker of vastly superior hardware? You are smoking some very funny stuff dude.
What do you mean, a sidegrade. The 7970 is quite a bit faster than a 580.
tell me is 8% "worth" the upgrade for me? thats what i mean side grade
dont fanboy crap on me, im on my side which is best bang for my money and currently not worth upgrading
Sounds like someone is seriously butthurt because his card is in a way distant 2nd place and Nvidia won't have anything to compete for god knows how long.
It's OK little feller, it happens.
Premo is pissed cause his old 4850 caught a bad driver and he wants to suicide bomb AMD headquarters! He's nothing more than a fanboi troll..
You mean he doesn't realize that people catch bad drivers on both sides of the fence? It's shitty, but it happens.
That as well. Both makers have their issues but he says AMD IS THE DEVIL!
dunno whats big deal anyway, its good competition and better prices for all of us
Do you play at "ALL RESOLUTIONS"?
You should know the lower resolutions are all CPU bound, even moreso with these monster graphics cards.
Let's take some slightly more reasonable examples, and PLEASE keep in mind these were done with beta drivers with lots of kinks left in them, which explains why the "summary" scores are lower than they should be. Yes, I am accusing you of intentionally misleading with your post. Oh and it looks like you can't read either, given that my fanboi comment was clearly as a reply to that PremoGS person.
BF3 1080p, 20% faster:
BF3 2560x1600, 23.7% faster:
Summary, 1080p, 11% faster:
Summary 2560x1600, 19% faster:
So yeah, I think 20% faster (on beta drivers) is an upgrade, not a sidegrade. Is it one *I* would personally make from a gtx 580? That's another question entirely, but certainly to call the 7970 an equal to the 580 is misleading at best.
wtf are you all on about?!?!?!? if it really does have disabled units that's fucking awesome. potential unlockability, potential for amd to release an even more powerful card using the same chip.
having said that, i doubt there really are disabled units and on the car analogy, this would be as if they said there's a 2.5 turbo under the hood when there really is a naturally aspirated 3.5.
you all? did you read the thread? there was ONE person, and EVERYONE else corrected them.
i play on 1080p and 10% "imo" is not improvement when i had my 580 for a year now
not trying to mislead ppl clearly numbers showed 7970 is better, and i definitely recommend it for ppl trying to choose b/n 580 and 7970 but for those who have 580? no bc i would wait what green team has to offer
and my fanboy comment is meant for anybody trying to start pointless argument which team is better
sorry, my reading comprehension might be a little off today... i just flew over the first page.
You are including all the games for which the driver support is broken, due to being in beta state, in the 11% assessment of overall performance. In other words you are either misleading or misled. Those are not final performance numbers, they are only pre-release numbers. You should try and understand that.
I doubt it though, since it's a new architecture that they have very little experience in. Unless it was a slip up and they just left it as it was. Doesn't matter to me though, I'm more looking forward to the 7950 when that comes out, should be a great upgrade from my 5850
I'm only interested in OC'ing these things like a boss. Going to wait for some non-reference variants that have factory OC and some quiet coolers
Will there be all this hating when Kepler is 10% faster.
Fact the 7970 overclocks like a boss so will kepler?
Will you be satisfied when W1zzard reviews a sapphire card @ 1335Mhz and is 30% faster
Your epeen is no longer the biggest just accept
ugh, GPU thread cat fight, move along, nothing to see here.
3dFX 4 lyfe!
I don't think Nvidia has much choice with their 480, if they had all 512 cores on the 480 well I think you could add bacon to the list of food that can be cooked on the grillforce 480.
what part you dont get about IMO? couldnt careless if its 50% improvement if IMO its not worth upgrading when most games are console port, sheesh some ppl have the need to correct ppl to the letter, i go by wizz chart that bothers u?
I don't see any problem, you play 1080p and the gain at that resolution does not justify an upgrade for you especially because no game out there can tax your GPU to the limits, it's fine.
BUT it's not a sidegrade either, the card has far more potential under the hood than it shows in reviews and the reason is the HUGE overclockability.
WTF dude ,You eat paint chips as a kid ?The 580 is the refresh 480 grill-master that should have been out a year ago.So what if AMD 6970 could only muster speeds out at gtx 570 levels.Boy you say you had AMD and bad drivers more like an idiot at the keyboard....The 7970 is a great card and beats your 580 get over it,Also if you looked up that there Sapphire sheet we talked about in other news threads ,You would see your precious green camp is about to be getting a red camp ass whopping....That mystical card they mention will come trust me.. they will make it.
He's banned. We can quit responding to him.
