At the 7970 launch we saw that the new AMD GPU performed very well compared to any card available at the time but the launch of Kepler see's NVIDIA close the gap. The performance isn't quite there to take Gainward past the 7970 but both cards do offer a great experience at 1920x1080 in the latest Total War.

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