Confusing benchmark differences between 7950 boost and GTX 670

I'm trying to do research on which card is the better performer between the 7950 boost and a GTX 670. I'm aware that the 670 is more expensive but I've read that the upcoming GTX 760 ti is supposed to perform at the 670's levels at a rumored $300 price tag.

The different benchmarks I've been reading have shown so much variation between the 7950 boost coming out on top, the 670, and even the 660 ti. I don't know what to trust! I'm basically looking to see if I should jump on a 7950 boost or wait a couple weeks for a 760 ti (based on the 670s performance).

Does anyone know of a reliable benchmark I could look at?

Alot of it depends on the type of game being played. Some games are better and smoother with the amd card and otehr games are better with the 670. What type of games do you play, from their i can help you in deciding cause some games ate just better with the nvidia and vise versa. And also are you looking at the 670 stock? If you wait a month, due to the 700 serise coming out the 600 will drop in price. And i think you should wait for the 760ti. The only prob is if you wait, remebr to buy it instantly cause as of now every damn 700 serise card is back orderded, im bought mine fro evga and prob not going to get it for a month.

I'm mostly playing modded skyrim, BF3, and Bioshock Infinite at the moment.

go nvidia then. Skyrm and BF3 are better with nvidia card. Duno about BF4 though, they did all the beta test on the amd card so BF4 might favor amd but either way when it comes to performance you will onely see slight difference between both amd and nvidia. The only thing is nvidia comes with psych x when amd doesnt. I currently own both and and like both the same. So yeah just wait for the 760ti.
