That would only end a battle. The war never ends.
Yeah i guess. But im tired off all the @#$%ing speculation. :shadedshu
here are some first realy really legit review HD 6970 CF result
and here are some single card result :
and this is the HD 6850 CF result :
wow its turn out HD 6970 will be head to head with GTX 580 its even faster than HD 6850 CF
here are some GTX 580 SLI :
here are some single card GTX 580 result :

Forgive me for being skeptical, but those benchies have been run on different systems, with different processors, running at different clocks. I'll continue to wait for Wizzie's Benchies™.
Maybe they're trying to obfuscate its performance. Note the 6970 is running on a 950 and the 580 on a 930, and it can't even beat it then!
Both running at 4ghz, all the 9xx i7's are the same cpu at different clocks excluding the two 6 core ones so they can be uses for valid comparisons if all the clocks and memory are the same speed.
as far as beating the 580 it does not have to do so to sell well just like the 48xx and 58xx cards as they were cheaper and used less power, it's all about position in the market with AMD thus why they have been making cheaper less power hungry cards since the 2900xt screw up.
But i know what this is about, you don't want the 6970 to beat the 580 as you already shelled out for one and if a cheaper less power hungry card beat yours then you would be unimpressed
They were all running at different clock speeds, it said in the images.
Yeah, but I still wouldn't buy one!
Oh bwoy!! Cannot wait for 7970 and 7990 cards!!!!
OK i admit the 580 result the CPU was 4011 and the 6970 result it was at 4027 so yes there was 16mhz difference.
I don't blame you, if the 580 supported three monitors on a single card i would be looking at buying one as well.
i agree the 7970 and 680 will be awesome cards
yeah especially HD 6950 was gonna be priced for less than $ 300, and you can get CF for less than $600 and have the uber performance even for eyefinity
Check this out!!! $310 for the 6950 and 375 for the 6970.
It seems charlie discovered what the secret switch does
6970 beats gtx580 (at 300W)
You mean like both sides position their cards precisely in a linear fashion so neither side needs to do a price cut?
It's semi what has happened with certain cards form both sides for a few generations now but then something else comes out and causes a drop but only after months.
Huh? For the 6970 the CPU was 3.07GHz and the 580's CPU was running at 2.8Ghz...
They're both OCed to around 4GHz
That's me not paying attention, sorry!
I'm quite impressed at the Unigine Heaven Benchmark, as the HD6970 Crossfire gets a better score than my HD5970 4GB cards on Crossfire(technically quad fire). nVidia always had the upper hand when it came to Tessellation. So if it's this close. I think the HD6970 will have better frames in games.
EDIT - Just noticed HD6970 CF has both better Min FPS and Max FPS than GTX580 SLI. LOL Fail
I CAN"T wait for the beast! I want to upgrade so badly my computer is now 2 years old and i still don't have troubles with the games i play! i want a tough game for my computer so i can upgrade it!!
True but it's better to screw metal to metal than metal to PCB and it's strengthens it even more against coolers like the MK-13
As always, S|A is full of bullshit.
I lulzed! gota love "competition"
really? no way!
Thanks that really made me smile in such a bad time, i feel like I'm going to explode waiting for the NDA to expire as since i have seen the prices i know i could quite likely afford one so need reviews so bad it almost hurts yes i may be a little drunk
Me do want!
