I think they got those numbers mixed up. The oc 470 has more of everything, including clock speed which they got wrong, than the 380x, In addition it's based on newer architecture.
Yeah it's not worth changing, but I can't believe the 380x still cost over 200.
It's not looking like I want to replace my 380x anytime soon.
so a .6 difference under the graphics.isnt that what gpus are about?.6 isnt a big deal in my eyes.thats what these two cards are pushing graphics.
