It's wonderful news for nV, kinda bad for AMD und a bit disappointing for the end user, at least in my opinion.
The reason it turned out so well is because they had some extra OC headroom. So they added GPU boost and beat the 7970 with clock speed. It really is
a mid-range card.
Either way, at its current price point, if you don't plan to overclock or use multiple cards, it's the best choice atm.
