One point of note for the WoW tests is that currently resolutions such as 5760×1080 are not available in DX11 mode so we have tested 1920×1080 with that enabled and 5760×1080 with DX9 mode.

WOW returns us to a set of 1920×1080 results which see the GTX 680 performing above the reference 7970, and the maximum overclock version too. At 5760×1080 the Radeons do close the gap though with the heavily overclocked 7970 offering similar performance to the reference GTX 680.

Here are examples of how the game looks at our tested settings.
