"The two cards belong to the same product class, yet there’s a twofold difference in their memory amount and a $20 difference in price."

Then where does assumption that they belong in the same product class come from?

They are not - 7790 competes with 650Ti non-boost, and 650Ti BOOST competes with 7850.

It competes with the 650Ti boost. Nvidia specifically went and created the boost to ruin 7790's party.

Cheapest 7790 on newegg: $139
Cheapest 650Ti boost on newegg: $149
Cheapest 7850: $199

To me that definitely looks like the boost is much closer to the 7790 than the 7850.

well, no brainer - NVIDIA solution is better for the money

AMD folks saw that too, and now XGX 2GB OC 7790 is 150$, including games bundle, of course

but where i live, 7790 1GB OC is good 30$ cheaper than ANY 650-ti boost 2GB (or 1GB, for that matter)

seems that nowadays man can get +1GB gddr5 for free?!

I'm confused as to why the GTX 650 TI Boost card that was chosen was the 2GB version of the card, and the 7790 was the 1GB. It would have made sense to me if you would have allowed the Asus 7790 to keep it's slight factory overclock.. As I can't find a GTX 650 TI Boost 2GB for less than $179.99. The Asus Radeon HD 7790 OC 1GB sells for $159.99 in my area. Kinda seems lopsided in Nvidia's favor to me.

I like that you show with the AA off, most reviews set to max settings and show neither or most cards being tested falter to non-playable Fps. I think most buying in at this level realize there's concessions to be made quality/eyecandy. I’d like to see more medium quality settings and perhaps 2xAA?

Next I just weigh in on how these chart might change if on a more mainstream platform. Folks buying a $130-170 cards aren’t rolling on a i7-3970X Extreme Edition and 16GB of DDR3 PC3-17000 9-11-10-28 Redline memory. Wonder how some of those Non-AA charts might change if on some Non Hyper-threading i3 with 8Gb of generic DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) had been used?

any nvidia gpu including nvidia’s most powerful GTX690,TITAN can’t support TressFX.TressFX is supported only on AMD HD7000(GCN) or higher series GPU.
TressFX is a technology which gives realistic hairs so if u still wants cartoonish hair then go with nvidia……

TressFX is nothing more than tree-physics applied to individual "hair". Its a physics engine, that runs on OpenCL. This is exactly same lie as PhysX is Nvidia only = common, thats just stinky proprietary physics engine running on CUDA/OpenCL.

Nowadays AMD needs support, so I'd purchase AMD. Its cards are also more GPGPU friendly for low money and AMD provides opensource coding and chip documentation.

Where Nvidia... Greenlight and co - look it up.
