My System Specs

Default This one goes to Green Team

Yep, qudos to Green Team. They beat 7970 on all counts. Looks like anything AMD touches turns into Bulldozer - slow and inefficient. I guess it was strategic mistake by AMD executives to get compute power in GCN. NVIDIA moved away from it and results are showing: 680 is cheaper, faster and cooler. So, AMD has to drop 7970 to $450 and 7950 to $350 to stay competitive. That will push 78xx and 77xx further down.
Now, everyone who bought in AMD 28nm parts are sour (me included). AMD got money, but going to lose market share. Short term profits for long term loses - typical AMD management style. I have stopped buying their CPUs few years ago, I guess I have to abandon their GPUs just the same.
