Yeah, the 7970 is and always has been a complete beast of a card. Few cards can touch it for sheer power...unfortunately AMD's own cards don't even seem to come close to the performance of a 7970.

On a brighter note, I very well may just jump on a 760. Depending on if someone buys my SLI 660's, I'll get a single 760 to start with, then SLI it in a month or so. Not the most financial saavy thing, to go from two 660's to a 760, but Meh, I have the itch!

If I had to put my money on it, I'd say AMD will roll out a different / upgraded Never Settle program in the next few weeks.

Mh Linus does not have the same results,both 1080p tho,very strange,check out crysis 3...Maybe because he does not use SMAA but in general,he shows that the 7950 is faster all the time and it is not the case with your benchmarks^^ I don't know who to believe lol

Linus tests all of the cards at max OC speeds.

Yeah,that means the 7950 overclocks like crazy,i understand,destroys the 760,bad for nvidia...There is no point buying a 760 then... as long as you have decent cooling...

Linus's tests don't mean a shred to me. Lots of people, myself included, don't overclock their video cards, therefore I am only interested in stock clocked benchmarks. Now, you may ask what is the point of getting a big, fancy, twin or triple fan cooler on my video card that I won't overclock? They're quite a bit more quiet, even at stock, than the reference cooler.

Whoops. My bad. Ya I meant the 7950 Boost. But I guess that's expected considering the 7950 is roughly $50 more expensive. Still amazed at the performance difference once overclocked. 7950 absolutely destroys the GTX 760, which is pretty much on par or slightly better than the GTX 660 TI.

Testing at max OC speeds is ridiculous without points of reference (ie: stock clocks). Every sample OCs differently which means there will be a massive statistical variance....something that shouldn't be part of any review.
