MSI HD 7970 Lightning 3GB Review

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 2GB Review

I have to say your Eyefinity results for BF3 in HD 7970 in the recent GTX 670 review are really suspicious. The gap between HD 7970 and GTX 680 has increased significantly from your previous reviews.

I have spoken to a user in hardocp forum who has tested both HD 7970 and GTX 680 in multi monitor. His opinion is very clear . the HD 7970 is faster.

From a reputed website

Nvidia's GeForce GTX 670 graphics card - The Tech Report - Page 5

the HD 7970 is faster than the GTX 680 and GTX 670 significantly at Eyefinity resolutions

As for 2560 x 1600 Ultra 4X MSAA "Rock and a hard place" benchmarking done by legitreviews shows much different results. Sapphire HD 7970 (950 Mhz) is slightly faster than GTX 670. MSI HD 7970 Lightning is slightly faster than GTX 680.

NVIDIA & EVGA GeForce GTX 670 2GB Video Card Review - Battlefield 3 - Legit Reviews

Its the same BF3 level as you have used. You might have used a different part of the level. But still to come and say the GTX 680 is 25% faster than HD 7970 (45.99 to 37.21) is simply.

As for 2560 x 1600 Ultra 4X MSAA "Operation Swordbreaker" benchmarking

HARDOCP - Battlefield 3 - Sapphire HD 7970 OC Edition Video Card Review

Sapphire HD 7970 (950 Mhz ) - avg 40 fps min 27 fps
Sapphire HD 7970 OC (1280) - avg 50.7 fps min 34 fps
GTX 680 (1100 turbo) - avg 42.9 fps min 25 fps

Thats a 7.5% difference which the GTX 680 (1100 turbo) has over HD 7970 (950 Mhz) . HD 7970 will easily surpass GTX 680 at similar clocks as shown by its brilliant performance scaling to 1280 Mhz. FYI operation swordbreaker is the most demanding level in BF3.

I can't say anything but this - your website looks awfully like Nvidia marketing division. Don't think that whatever you put up in your website is taken as it is. People know when somebody is not honest. And I can say clearly whatever you try to convince anybody else you cannot convince the people who do their research rather than blindly swallow from paid journalists like you.
