    6950 CrossFire vs single GTX 580 - your pick?

    agree :toast: if you are a bench score runner that also care about the budget(even if daul 6950 did beat gtx 580 it would be close with in 10% gap but spending extra 100 bucks over gtx 580)...go for dual card setup and if you are just for gaming/CAD and do not want to spend valuable time debug...

    GTX 570 or Radeon HD 6970?

    how much room do you think that can be oc on 69xx when their clock speed are nearly hitting 1ghz barrier(880mhz!!)? while gtx 570 is only 725 mhz and having more head room for oc. that's say, if ut has to take a 6970 at 950mhz to tight up with gtx 570 at stock that mean when gtx 570 clock up to...

    6950 CrossFire vs single GTX 580 - your pick?

    anyway i would say gtx 580 is better than dual gpu crossfire as you would have to deal with driver issue and micro-shuttering and even lower minimum frame rate than single card due to data latency between crossfire/sli bridge. to op: unless you'd ready for more buggy gaming experience with...

    6950 CrossFire vs single GTX 580 - your pick?

    are you sure a quad fire 6950 ONLY consume 329watts in total system consumption while a single card already took 158watt? plus 158 watt is totally underrating for card like 6950...(supposedly to be a 6870's rating) and you're compare a tri sli gtx 580 to a 2 way cf 6950 and call it a win? wow......

    GTX 570 or Radeon HD 6970?

    first off you'd need to realize there aint much of room for 69xx to oc because they are already clocked very high while gtx 570 has a lot of room to grow plus non of any amd card can run extreme tessellation on the part with gtx 570/580. unless 6970/6950 can drop price to below $250or i would...

    6950 CrossFire vs single GTX 580 - your pick?

    just cause 2 and avp are both heavily pro amd game, why dont you test game like civilization/lost planet/splinter cell/dirt 2 and vontage plus i got different result between 6970 vs gtx 580.. even under such pro-amd bench i still dont see how 6970 beats gtx 580 and your bench setup is...

    GTX 570 or Radeon HD 6970?

    nope...there's noway a gtx 570 can cost 400 bucks... PNY VCGGTX570XPB GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 32... tell me how worth can you get if you have a 6970. under the same price range gtx 570 is a bit better than 6970.

    GTX 570 or Radeon HD 6970?

    go for gtx 570, you wont see much different from 5850 to 6970 in most of game except game with higher tessellation. however gtx 570 will just do much better in newer tessellation game and older texture/pixel heavy game and buff shader game that ported console as well. not to mention it has physx...

    6950 CrossFire vs single GTX 580 - your pick?

    a 6950 cf are NEVER be in same category as dual gtx 570 and neither 6970 cf can put tiny scratch on gtx 580 sli :D. 6970 is weaker than gtx 570 in dx9/dx10/dx11 heavy tessellation and aa/af/msaa and ONLY tight up with gtx series in super ridiculous high resolution with the benefit of ram...

    Radeon HD 6870 PCB and GPU Pictured

    maybe the pcb from chiphell was actually the unlcok version of barts and feature 6+8 power connector because right now neither barts xt or barts pro are full chip according to the spec of 1120sp and 960sp.

    Official AMD Radeon 6000 Series Discussion Thread

    you must meant gtx475 aint you? because we already had gtx 465 and it is sucked just as bad as 5830. anyway here's my speculation for cayman, assume cayman's full chip is 2/3 of barts xtx(full chip): 1920sp = cayman xtx (maybe only being available on 28nm process) 1680sp = cayman xt (next...

    Official AMD Radeon 6000 Series Discussion Thread

    i'm not been irritated by something like this...just feel stupid that they bother to introduce something only a little bit more shader and higher clock then barts but expect to sell 200 dollar more? how would someone going to buy a card that's just clock up and more shader? r770 was worth a...

    Official AMD Radeon 6000 Series Discussion Thread

    these spec won't worth price of $300+ just stuff more shader&clock higher with core and memory and expecting people to pay the same price high tag from previous gen? that is far worse than x1xxx era...if you want to pay for the card that is merely just higher clock you can pretty much just do...

    NVIDIA to Counter Radeon HD 6970 ''Cayman'' with GeForce GTX 580

    get proper cooling so you won't cook yourself alive. electric bill, work more or ask your boss for raise, or else find a new job and earn more money so you can pay additional power bill. problem solved!

    New Black Ops gameplay video.

    it's just a combination of many element from most of fps game/mod today, nothing special and not worth to spend 60 bucks on it. PS: hm.... gun game...kinda reminds me of old counter-strike 1.5/1.6 gun game server...

    does that sound make it a perfect excuse to rise up their gpu price tag and use the gpu revenue to help the loss cpu department?

    Graphics Card recommendation

    that card sucks terribly because of GDDR3 instead of GDDR5. gt240 are known to be far weaker than 9600gt because of rops(16rops vs 8 rops) and bus(256bit vs 128bit). the GDDR3 has completely no value at all and poorly compare to 3 years old 9600gt. just go for gts 250 or gt240 "GDDR5".

    NVIDIA to Counter Radeon HD 6970 ''Cayman'' with GeForce GTX 580

    960sp was prototype, the real tape out is 1280sp. shader don't directly affecting framerate and they aint the filling unit. a 10000sp with just 16rops will most definitely stuck at maximum frame rate while 128sp with 64rops will have 4x theoretically frame rate under same clock rate. more...

    Early Listings Indicate Radeon HD 6800 Series Pricing

    sound like victim that had experience "upgrade" from 8800gtx to 9800gtx while 9800gtx was far weaker than 8800gtx. well since the price had tag barts as a upper mid-range card(199~250) while cypress's price is hard as concrete that still stacked on that $300+ segment. barts may be 5~10%...
