    Seems like we are finally seeing some real hardware.

    Now I can't till Wednesday, and pricing of course XD

    The issue is that the person did 2 benchmarks 1 in Heaven and 1 in Crysis.

    The system spec was a Core I3 and a 32bit OS with a max resolution of 1600x900.

    The card was outperformed by a pair of GTX 560ti's in sli.

    Until we can see the card benched in a proper pc it's going to be difficult to judge the performance.

    Heaven gave a max fps of around 146, and Crysis gave a average fps of 50.

    Not benched my GTX 480 at the resolution used but I would suspect it wouldn't be far off the same result's, as my card is not being bottle knecked by the cpu and OS.

    his card is cpu capped and the 32bit os is not helping matters

    that's like sticking a slick racing tires on a 1.0litre polo

    i'll wait until some proper benches are done.

    Have seen that done and also seen them with roll cages on other car's that can probably only just manage to get to 60mph.

    More like sticking a huge engine in a polo and not changing the tyres, :D.

    Any car with slicks would handle better. :D

    :D :D :D :naughty:

    Wondering if this was only what had available at the time to test it on and hopefully it will get proper benching when he can,

    my thoughts are that this is os limited...the chip is fine, although an i5-2500k would add fps just because it's a better chip, but no more than it would add for any other card benched...

    i looked at 3dmark11 scores, and as similar as i could get, the score from an i3-2100 w/64 bit windows/8 gb ram/7970 and an i5-2500 is 6050-ish to 6670-ish...around 10%...and we know that doesn't translate to 10% more fps at all...

    he's ram/os limited

    people in the thread asking for benches downclocking the 7970.. to match the 680 clock for clock- what the heck is that all about xD I can guess

    looks like 7970 getting 148 fps in batman ac without physx.. 112 for the 680 (without physx)

    that's a twimtbp title

    But it's still limited by the system. On a 64-bit system with a better CPU, like the 2500k, the 680 might have more room to breath, for lack of a better term.

    Why on earth would ANYONE run Windows 7 32-bit on a 64-bit CPU?

    you're kinda missing the point...the 7970 is just as limited as the 680...it's apples to apples...

    Reread it, I see the point now. They're both bottlenecked so it's a completely useless review, as far as comparing them.

    I still don't understand why he even has a 7970 and 680 if all he has to test them on are 32-bit gimp machines.

    Why is that people unable to prepare a proper benchmark of a card are the ones who get them first? The most useful thing from this is physical dimensions of the card.
