As I read http://www.itproportal.com/2013/02/25/amd-radeon-hd-7970-ghz-edition-vs-nvidia-geforce-gtx-680-frametimes-preview/ it was a good read but your question is nothing more than asking others to find the benchmarks on the models and then have someone come along to dismiss the benchmarks as invalid because a new driver is out.
Not only that, I wonder if you have the rest of the machine to power this up.
As the title states, I'm looking for the fastest, top of the line 7970 card.
There's so many different ones out there, I've read all the reviews, and what not but still haven't been able to determine which card actually takes the lead..
I'm hoping that posting here, I can get some help in determining the outcome. From what I've read and everything, it seems possibly... that these few are the top cards for 7970 edition cards?
Of course I'm assuming the Ghz edition cards are always faster than the non, but this is including overclocking, etc.
From what I put together, a couple of the cards that I figure in the line up are:
MSI Lightning 7970
Asus Matrix Platinum 7970
Sapphire Vapor X 7970
Any others that would beat these cards, and take the lead would be greatly appreciated. Hope some folks can give me feedback, can't decide on what card to actually get.
I know the Titan beats the single card, but I can't justify the price (if i was to xfire, around $800, rather than just $1k for a single card), and from what I know the 7970 ghz edition single cards, beat the current nivida single cards (exception of titan)
