More about 660ti 7950
  1. Both are fine. Wouldn't worry too much about the TR article as AMD has already said there will be driver updates to address that very issue.

    If you're going to be overclocking, the 7950 is better. If not, it just depends on what games you play and overall it's not going to make a big difference one way or the other.
  2. ^+1
    I would in for the 7950 because of its better oc ing.

    another thing worth mentioning is what you like...multimonitors or 3d
  3. and HD 7950 is faster to begin with
  4. 7950 may be provide little higher fps but 660 ti provides smoother graphics.
  5. @ siddharthmukul007 +1 you wont see much of a difference, so go with the cheaper one unless you play Borderlands 2 and want the gtx's eye candy.
  6. Both cards offer similar performance and are priced about the same. So it could come down to if you find a better deal with one of them. I kind of like the 384-bit memory interface of the 7950 compared to only 192-bit for the 660-Ti, I know right now it doesn't make much difference in the benchmarks, but I'm wondering if it could become handy in the future (but yeah I know nothing is "future proof").
  7. nothings future proof the gtx 660ti will be good for a while, when it becomes not performant enought, like usually ull have to get a new card, thats standard pc games for ya, u always need to upgrade when the new games require more juice, also im really unshur if the 384 bit will give it more performance down the line, considering the gtx 660ti is 192 bit and theres no real difference here, also considering the adaptive vsync nvidia has the edge with vsync, also the 7950 is more expensive, so for price to performance ratio the nvidia 660 ti wins here.

    How many times are you going to state that the 660ti has the price/performance ratio?? With a 192 bit bus and poor scaling?? The 7950 with a mild overclock beats out the 680 and has more bandwidth and more vram for $300!

    Again??? LOL

    Let me just copy/paste this from previous thread.

    Please read THE WHOLE story before spreading that. It is true that there is a latency issue, BUT it is not as real world affecting as most people have now started believing and TechReport has said this themselves.

    The drops he is experiencing is not consistent with what TR has found, those are natural drops that the GTX660ti would encounter in certain situations too.

    EDIT : Here is a nice lengthy discussion for you to read too.

    Yeah third time I have seen him do that and then when you ask for prove he just shrugs that it would take time... LOL.

    So over arguing with him...

    There is my opinion on the matter.

    BUT if your ead all of it you will see that AMD is starting to fix this so don't stress.

    I still would chose the AMD for now.

    AMD has already said this will be fixed in future driver updates... don't go making a mountain out of a molehill.

    It's not too different from all the early 660ti coverage showing how the minimum framerate could go down the toilet in demanding AA situations.

    I understand he has a 660ti thats great, but the 7950 has much more potential at the same price point.

    Agreed. The HD 7950 just brings more hardware to the table for the same price.
  16. well not really to be honest, i got my gtx 660ti at 240$ the cheapest 7950 was 300$, thats still 60$ for not alot of juice more, yes in the long run the 1gig extra of vram and bus might help it but for a while the gtx 660ti and 7950 are very close in performance.

    to me 60$ is a big difference. regardless if u say its not a good bang for bucks to me the cheapest card with the most performance is best in my book considering im under a small budget, if i had more money i might get a 670 overclock it to 680 levels, or a 7970.
