Fanboys of any persuasion instantly fail at life.
i mean if those benches are for real than it really isn't a whole lot faster than the 5870. Pricing will have to be very low for this to work.
Then just get the asus. They seem to have figured out just about everyone hates those shitty random crap renders. Look at how they integrated the side accents.
But if you check the stock cooler, its screwed on different parts of the card, and i think the stock cooler / vrm-mem unisink and shroud should cover that..
i repeat, the correct drivers arent released yet, the benches made till now are completely and way off, just wait and see.
Yes, the GPUZ screenshot does not display the proper shader units anyways.
Desperate times call for desperate measures: W1zzard, can you "leak" the benches for 6970 and apologise ála GTX 580?
I think if he did that, he'd never get any review samples again...
Considering the price of a 6870 the 6970 could be considerably cheaper than the 580, I can't see AMD falling that low on the 6970. It would be way better to buy to 6870's.
Oh, that too, but we can always push the blame to TheMailMan, no?
The MOD who works at OCUK has confirmed the 6970 beats a 5870 but not a 580, does not looks good.
Now that's from a guy whos job is to sell these things, 6970 will be slightly faster than a 5870 but with better tessellation performance.
Drivers are one thing, but even with phenomenal drivers, a good bet is that it will be no more than 50% faster than a 5870. Unless those are the wrong number of shaders, this card will not perform like the last generational leaps.
The other thing they did is artificially boost expectations by renaming their cards. That will happen whenever you decide to name the new mid range card the same naming scheme that used to be your top-of-the-line-big-f(**&-off card.
5970 vs 6970 ... yeah...
I remember a card before that had that same characteristic, albeit, a higher power consumption and a bit hotter than a 280. In anycase, pricing here on our country is out.. ranges about 60-70 USD cheaper than a GTX580
So if this is single gpu what's their dual gpu card going to be called? 6990 sounds stupid...
HAHA. I KNEW IT!
AMD, you fail.
In fact, yet it will be.
I hope they redesign the cooler too. I like the boxy look, but want them to rip off NV's chamber design that they used for the 580.
man im tired of the waiting game,i want to see game benchmarks
if its fast then it will be between the GTX570 and GTX580 in price point and preformance.
I dont see it beating the 580 :shadedshu
c'mooonn... be patient... patience is a virtue... all good stuff come slow...
You knew what?
I knew the 6970 wouldn't beat the 580.
And the official benchmarks are where?
You could at least wait until they are out to mock them for being so fail
The only reason I see for waiting to release the benchmark tests is that it does not perform like expected .
But only for those who expected too much
As long as it's cheaper and preferably uses less power than the 580 then it hits an acceptable place in the market as it will sit in the position the 5870 and 4870 did in past generations.
