I think Nvidia and AMD have both came out with some really nice cards this generation. I can't believe Nvidia have finally cleaned up their power usage. Although I think they did it at the sacrifice of some compute power

What is the difference in quality when using the graphics card as opposed to using the CPU? And was there any video or audio quality difference between the Nvidia and AMD cards?

Looks like NVIDIA undercut itself...sorta. From what I've read, the 680 and 670 are fairly close together in performance (to the point where you need either a trimonitor setup or 1600p). The huge price difference between the still nonexistent 680 and the new 670 helps solidify the 670 (assuming NVIDIA can keep them in supply) as the new price/performance king!

I wonder if AMD will have to cut prices again, since the 670 performance wise is at or slightly above a 7970. It would seem foolish to keep them at their current price point if NVIDIA can keep the 670s flowing.

The conclusion states that the AMD card was faster for regular programs. Is video conversion really a regular program???

Could the big difference in game playing be due to the drivers or their design???

"regular program" = non-games
