MSI GTX 680 Lightning vs. MSI HD 7970 Lightning

MSI Lightning kartice su dosta popularne kod računalnih entuzijasta i overclockera. S novom Lightning serijom, MSI je odlučio požuriti i ranije predstaviti svoje Lightning kartice. S ~15% većim taktom nego referentne kartice, Lightning donosi lijepo povećanje u performansama uz veći OC potencijal i naravno manju buku. Kada gledamo unikatna svojstva s kojima Lightning kartice dolaze, moramo reći da tu zbilja briljiraju. Odlična softverska podrška, mogućnost povećanja napona, vrhunski dodatan BIOS koji je podređen za overclockere te još bolja mogućnost overclocka zbog posebnog dizajna kartice su svojstva koja čine Lightning seriju trenutno najboljim dizajnom kartica na svijetu.

AMD Radeon HD 7970 grafička kartica je predstavljena dosta prije nego GTX 680. Jedna od velikih prednosti Tahiti čipa jest sam overclock potencijal te malo zagrijavanje i potrošnja. Po pitanju performansi, kartica svakako donosi lijepo povećanje u odnosu na staru generaciju. Međutim kada performanse usporedimo s novim GK104 čipom, vidimo dosta čudne rezultate. U nekim testovima ima lijepu razliku prednosti, u nekima je uz bok Nvidia-i, dok u nekim gubim prilično velikom razlikom. Ukoliko nemate toliko novca za GTX 680, Lightning HD 7970 kartica vas sigurno neće razočarati performansama niti ičim drugim u radu i tko god želi najbolju HD 7970 karticu ne treba tražiti dalje jer Lightning kartica ima sve što ijedan korisnik može poželjeti i zbog toga smo joj dodijelili HW Gurus Editors Choice nagradu.

S druge strani, suprotni tabor također ima jako puno toga za ponuditi te ga se ne treba zaobići. MSI Geforce GTX 680 Lightning kartice ima gotovo identičan dizajn kao i HD 7970 Lightning, što znači da je tu povećanje napona, dodatan BIOS podređen za overclockere, odlično hlađenje. Taktom preko 100MHz većim za jezgru nego referentna kartica svakako donosi lijepo povećanje u performansama, a usporedno na HD 7970 razlika je uglavnom oko 10% u korist GTX 680. Ukoliko želite najbolju karticu na tržištu, bez obzira na cijenu, MSI Lightning GTX 680 je prava kartica za vas. Ovoj kartici smo dodijelili HW Gurus „The Best Of“ nagradu jer bolju karticu od ovih nećete moći pronaći.

Conclusion

MSI Lightning cards are quite popular with computer enthusiasts and overclockers. With the new Lightning series, MSI has decided to hurry up and introduce their Lightning cards earlier. With ~15% higher clocks than the reference card, Lightning makes a nice increase in performance with even greater OC potential and all that with less noise. When we examine the features of Lightning cards, we have to say that it’s a thing where Lightning really shines. Excellent software support, ability to increase the voltage, additional BIOS which is oriented to overclockers and with the special PCB design card, Lightning graphic card series is probably the best designed card at the market.

AMD Radeon HD 7970 graphics card is presented much before GTX 680. One of the biggest advantages of Tahiti chip is overclock potential and low power consumption and heat. In terms of performance, the card certainly brings a nice increase compared to the old generation. However, when we compare it with the performance of the new GK104 chip, we see a lot of strange results. In some tests, it is neck to neck with nVidia, in some it losses with big difference and in some is better. If you do not have enough money for the GTX 680, HD 7970 Lightning card certainly will not disappoint with the performance or anything else and whoever wants the best HD 7970 card does not need to look any further because the Lightning cards have everything that any customer could wish for and therefore we give it “HW Gurus Editors Choice” award.

On the other side, the opponent also have a lot to offer and should not be bypassed. MSI GeForce GTX 680 Lightning card have a nearly identical design as the HD 7970 Lightning, which means that there is a voltage increase, additional BIOS for overclockers and excellent cooling. Clocked over 100MHz for the core higher than reference card certainly brings a nice increase in performance and compared to the HD 7970, the difference is generally about 10% in favor of the GTX 680. If you want the best card on the market, regardless of price, the MSI GTX 680 Lightning is the right card for you so therefore this card is awarded with HW Gurus “The Best Of” award because you won’t find better card.
