I thought the 660Ti of this generation was more like the 448 for the 560...
I think we'll see a card that has another core dropped (ala 680 to 670) but with everything else the same for a non ti 660... possibly 1.5GB of ram to save further?

Also on the pricing.. I said this before but Nvidia kills AMD when you compare release prices.. but now, AMD's are getting harder and harder to look past...
Nvidia need a ~10% price-drop on the 600 series across the board withing the next month or 6 weeks to regain the edge..

I don't know if it's possible or not, but I would appreciate if you could include 560, 460 and 260 in the lineup, even if you just pull the numbers over from earlier testing.

Likewise include 580, 480 and 280 in the 680 review, perhaps in the general review rather than one like this.

It helps people like myself when I'm upgrading machines that are still running 8800's and trying to figure out a price/performance buy.

As of right now I tend to use that hardware compare site but it would be nice to have a good idea of how the numbers have moved from gen to gen.

All the other charts are sorted by highest average FPS; the 7970, 7950B and 670 are out of order in this chart.

Ok.

I think Skymtl's out of range for the weekend so it might not get looked at until mon/tues. It looks like the chart is weighted towards showing the review units together at the top, and then the standard "other models" comparison down towards the bottom. Maybe there was thought to having all of the charts done in this manner, but that decision was changed and this chart didn't make it to the reorg party.... ;)

I've actually found this behavior on all kepler 680 cards as well, I have used reference 680s from EVGA which had the same behaviors. Tons of clockspeed changes at max load. Its quite maddening.

I totally agree....which is why we will be doing a full article about it and AMD's Boost in the coming weeks....after a few more launches and a review of PowerColor's new Devil 13.

Dual card round-up at the same time? (say top 3 from each camp)
Would be a great comparison for those thinking about dual cards and love your reviews..
