Personally never use Toms for my hardware info, but this graph looks a little odd, how come the 7970 lost about 10fps?

Not hating on the GTX680, going to be grabbing one as soon as they arrive in Aus, sick of ATI, who doesn't love constant little flickers in their games! :D
Different machines, drivers, special diet to loose some FPS? Defenders of the Red Team (in this situation) or the Grean team will ALWAYS find something to spoil the success of one or another. I really don't give a rat's ass if it's 10 frames or 15. The overall result is pretty clear. Don't you think?

Although I prefer EVGA with reference cards, I can't wait to see ASUS DCII models of GTX 680.

Yep. Toms Hardware is bias to nVidia

They always have been,always will be.

Oh yeah and it looks like nV has got the top spot.Like we didnt know that was going to happen :rolleyes:

What does this graph tell us? The maximum number of frame it was able to sustain in one second, or the average? If the average then why is the 680 running so far above the 60Fps when we are told Adaptive V-Sync try’s to maintain it as such? Is it the max, was that high point of rendering which happened once for one second, while the rest of the time it chugged along at above 60Fps. Sure it never dropped below that 60Fps and that’s what really matters, but that one spike of 98.6 and maintained it for a least one second... big whoopy! We really need to see real-time frame rates to see how smooth the game play comes across.

Is this why Nvidia had reviewer’s show-up weeks ago basically to explain how best to test such new cards. I don't see it taking what like 3 weeks, "supposedly" when W1zzard got a card to do his normal review. Tells me they all need to figure out if they would paint a evenhanded comparison, or just do what they always have done and hope we don’t catch on… for a while.

Shurakai is right there can't or shouldn’t be that amount of negative variation from the original 7970 numbers and now what's 4 months. Different machines? What Tom's downgrade from a high-end i7 since December... they will be the same machine, drivers got that much (8%) worse, while the GXT improve or stays within a margin of error, Right. It's Tom's and why they sxck!

Absolutely no one is going to bench graphics cards VSYNC on.

Yes, their bias is so clear. Between displaying the HD6990 as crushing the GTX590, recommending people buy AMD cards over Nvidia cards for almost every price tier, and giving unlimited praise to the newest AMD line, the truth has finally surfaced.

Our apologies, this was a pricing error. On launch date (Mar 22, 2012), this card was $499.99, the price is now $509.99. We may see a return to these price points when supply is more consistent, but we are at the point now where all of the launch day allocation is gone and we are still very much in limbo about follow up shipments.
