    I was anticipating a big fail but, after all this card own 0.0 ... should I sell my two 7970 and buy two 680 instead ? xD

    Nice card!
    I would've expected it to do better in some titles (i.e. metro2033), though :(

    And
    :3eyes:
    I guess they'll dub it the 780GTX later. Who knows what they're holding back now, because AMD can't beat this competition?!

    Hmm just finished reading the Guru3d review.

    Nice card all in all and great perf for the price.

    Wins in most game, but interestingly loses in heavy dx11 games like Metro2033 & AvP.

    However the real killer for me is the stonkingly good BF3 performance, where quite frankly it stomps all over the 7970 !!
    That is bad news for my wallet.

    Of all the reviews i've read, have to say Techpowerup has the best one.
    Look at the nice Oc'g performance of the card aswell :banana:

    Good card, but I'm somewhat disappointed.

    I guess the 8800 jump days are over.

    I hate the way they do this. If this was meant to be the mid range product then why not just release it as such.

    Releasing a better performing high end product soon after would completely scare AMD and get a lot of their customers over to the mid range parts also... Delaying the high end and naming this in it's place is just illogical, except of course they're charging £450 for a so called "mid range" part.

    I'm actualy a bit disappointed with the performance under heavy DX11 stuff. It loses out to the 7970 under Metro and is about the same with Crysis 2. The 680 is absolutely a mid-range card being sold as a high-end product so it's worth remembering how impressive an achievement Kepler seems to be, but personally I'm going to wait for the real deal in GK100.

    AVP has always been heavily AMD biased as it was them who paid for it, just like Lost Planet 2 and Hawx2 is when it comes to looking at it on AMD hardware, I don’t always pay much attention.

    Metro2033 is an Nvidia game, so that is a shock, maybe a driver issue, or it could be like Dirt 2/3 where it started off as an AMD game, but over time Nvidia cards ended up quicker.

    Great review anyway, and fantastic overclock, just needs a better cooler by the sounds of things, so glad I’m sitting this out for now.

    Such Low Wattage and Such great performance is a Winner on it's own.

    There is no doubt i will be replacing my 580 with this. I would wait for a 4GB Version but i got the feeling 2GB will be enough. Tho that's what i thought with 1,5GB aswell.

    I can wait for a little while. I need a good Aftermarket Cooler for it anyways.

    How does it compare OCed to a 7970 OCed though?

    Amazing card, the turbo boost is what I find to be the most interesting feature.
    For a mid-range card it really performs. Can't wait to see the proper OC review when the voltage tweak is fixed.
    Nice review as always Hilbert :p
