Josh Norem infatuation to pit the 7790 against the GTX650Ti Boost is clear. This being publish just 4 days before AMD is the launching the R7 260X at $140 makes such a write-up truely ineffective. Well other than to give Nvidia a "last hurrah" before their price drop. Hopefully Josh and editors will find an opening to re-asses the $130-150 landscape, with more present-day line-up and pricing structure.

So this particular model by Gigabyte: GV-N65TBOC-2GD

Not only sports the 2gb 192-bit interface, but costs $150, and that's before you consider newegg's $10 rebate card. So for $140 final cost, I'd go with the Gigabyte card and get better performance over the Radeon for less money.

I've got the Gigabyte GTX660OC card in my desktop. It kicks some butt. I had originally planned on getting something a little less powerful, but decided to go with a card that was near the top of the heap.

Looking at those benchmarks I don't feel too bad about my 68XX crossfire setup as it schools them in Heaven 4.0. BTW could MPC also post the scores given by the Heaven benchmark?

This "super" 650 has issues with 1080 and apple decided that a far crappier version of it should be the flagship GPU for their current retina macs?! Nvidia should be ashamed about that (as should apple).

You always neglect to mention that AMD cards also include the Catalyst AI suite, which sucks, along with ATI's historical lack of Linux support, which is slowly starting to improve, but not fast enough. No amount of savings is worth losing the quality of the complete package and well rounded support that the nVidia card includes.

"along with ATI's historical lack of Linux support, which is slowly starting to improve"

I wish your knowledge of history would improve. AMD bought ATI back in 2006 dude. ATI is no more. It's not accurate at all to refer to them as ATI anymore.

"this GPU features a wider 12-bit memory interface than the standard Ti"

I'm sure you mean 192-bit.
