From the benchmarks I've heard, the boost models won't hold a candle to the factory OC'd units. Apparently the PowerTune interferes with the boost function, meaning the card will run at full boost for a few frames, then drop back down to stock clocks for a few more, then back up to full boost. Apparently the overall framerates are less than if the card were to just run at a flat 880 or 900 Mhz OC.

And another +1 for the 7950.
