AMD Radeon HD 7970 vs Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 Driver Comparison

Tbreak has taken launch and latest driver releases for the Radeon HD 7970 and the GeForce GTX 680 and compared how performance has changed.

 

As you can see both the AMD HD 7970 and the NVIDIA GTX 680 perform on par, my guess being that the HD 7970 GHz Edition will outperform the GTX 680 in F1 2012, Battlefield 3 and Civilization V. However, none of these would be meaningful performance bumps as anything beyond 60fps is only for boasting, unless you have a monitor running at 120Hz refresh rate. Even then, though, actual performance benefits are arguable for most competitive games.
