Single-Card Results: Borderlands 2
GeForce GTX 770 comes very close to the 780 in Borderlands 2, edging out AMD’s single-GPU flagship yet again. Of course, this title isn’t particularly graphics-bound—even the two-generation-old GeForce GTX 580 averages more than 60 FPS.
Hard to read, right? That’s because Borderlands 2 isn’t particularly demanding, so all of the cards we’re testing clump up in an ugly pile.
It’s GeForce GTX 770 and Radeon HD 7970 up top yet again, both boards demonstrating excellent (low) latencies from one frame to the next, even when we peel out the 99th percentile worst-case result.
Kind of an expected performance increase. Seeing overclocked GTX 680 review was conclusive enough unless you've never seen one. Never expected this card to be getting the Smart Buy award though to be completely honest.
Hey, how about another title for the review?
- GTX 680 Gets a New Cooler, BIOS Update and Price Drop! -
No? I'll think of a better one...
Less noise than 7970GE.
Runs cooler than 7970GE.
Same FPS as 7970GE.
$50 less cost.
Yeah indeed, why to get the Smart Buy award I wonder...
Agreed. Sapphire 7970 Ghz ftw <3
