Drivers have absolutely NOTHING to do with which is the better card. The 680's drivers are no better than AMDs. As a matter of fact, up until the 301.34 betas were installed, the scaling was HORRID.Just so I have this correct, you have 3 x 7970 in CF on 5 mths old drivers and you are saying that the 7970 is a better card?...LOL
Perhaps you should do a little more reading, since you don't OWN both of the cards in question, and are thus judging by word of mouth instead of experience.
Here's a good place to start.
So you think I collected a bunch of boxes? I've had issues on another forum before with you Balla. Give it a rest. All you do is troll. I've got pictures of my cards as well if you want to act as if I'm faking. Where the hell would I get the boxes from in the first place then, smart guy?All I see are boxes and other junk.
Negative. The VRAM limit comes close at my res, but 2GB is JUST enough for BF3 @ 2560x1440 w/4x MSAA. I'm currently selling all 4 of my 680s, and will most likely be grabbing the 4GB models if I don't decide to just add a 4th 7970, since they're a much better bang for the buck right now. Not to mention 3GB is more than enough VRAM for 99% of gaming scenarios.Guys if hes running that many cards, hes probably hitting the VRAM limit on the 2gb 680. I bet he is using more than a 3 monitor setup. Of course the 7970s would outperform in this case. 7970s are great cards, no question about it. They tend to dominate in higher resolutions which should be common sense now.
I'm 25 years old, and have been PC gaming for 2 decades, so just because I just created an account on Anandtech, doesn't mean I'm a newbie to PC hardware. I've been a member on other PC tech forums for a long long time.
