    Stupid question... Its logical, when EVERY AMD card has higher IPC than a 760 it will beat the 760 assuming its equally clocked or close.

    THINK. A. BIT.

    Postcount +1:

    The Nvidia GPU in question will be faster than a 7950, when both is on stock/default settings.

    Default is a better word for describing it. STOCK is not.

    Requesting reading material is a "stupid question". Wow.

    If this is true please guide me to the material. You seem to know a lot on the subject so I want to read the material in which you read.

    I dont READ, i have personal experience. Also, why do you think 680-770s lose to 7970s in FS/3d11 when the GK104 is clocked higher? Once again: THINK.

    I don't understand, why are we talking about equal clocks now? The 760 runs at a much higher stock clock than the 7950, and reaches a higher clockspeed when overclocked. Surely we have to account for that too?

    How about we account for IPC aswel? If the 7950 reaches, lets say 1200 it will beat a 760 at 1250.

    Fair enough on stock, as I can't find a defintion on that use of the word. Default is a good word though, and default should be compared to default no?

    I agree, default should be compared with default. BUT, im saying that you CAN OC the 7950 (By a much higher percentage i might add) than the 760. Therefor higher performance increase, not only because of the higher percentage but because of the IPC (Which means more gain from OC)

    But since the OP doesnt want better performance, and is lazy. Then yea 760 is a good choice.

    Lets say you are correct. I will still recommend a 760 over a 7950 if its cheaper (after accounting for the value of the free games of course), and vice versa. I honestly cannot see any difference between a 660Ti and a 7950, even though the 7950 is quite a bit more powerful on paper, perhaps you can?

    no you guys have said the 760 is a better choice in most situations (Based on benchmarks you pull out of you know what). And that the 760 overclocks better, not sure where you guys got that from.

    And it shows :)


    How is the OP lazy. He is here to learn.

    You are lazy because you don't even read.

    Very few people overclock their graphics card, so in most situations 760 is the better card.

    It's easy to say Tahiti overclocks good under full copper block in a custom loop. Would you have your 7970 @1.22 GHz on air?

    Its funny you say that, because yea thats what i ran it at on air. It now runs at 1300/1800 24/7, benches at 1360/1880. I havent updated it yet in the PC specs thingy.

    idk why you think 1220/1650 is such a big deal on air, because it isnt.

    No, we have been going around in circles for the past 50 ish posts. You could easily say that 760 is better at stock (ie untouched), but when overclocked they are both essentially the same. And we will all understand and move on rather than embarking in some silly arguments involving "IPC" and "I don't read". I think its time to move on, we have agreed on a point :toast:
