some ppl also forget most console games run at 1000x600 and are UPSCALED to 720p which is then stretched to fit a 1080 screen so im sorry consoles dont cut it for me i own a PS3 and the only game ive played with passable graphics was MGS 4
same with me i just using my PS3 just for FF13 (i'm hard core fan of FF)

but if next FF come to PC then i will ditch my ps3 happily

Bet the top card can't touch my 480 @ 850 core. :nutkick:
The 2gb 5870's can run pretty close to the 480 and you can substantially overclock them, and the new 6000 series are really going to stop nvidia in it's tracks, nvidia has been having too many problems overheating thats why they cant make a dual gpu fermi ati has no problems with heat and beats nvidia in almost all benchmarks and most of the games were designed for nvidia graphics cards. But just remember the 5870 was released 6 months before the fermi series and the 5970 is still the king of video cards.

maybe, but his post contains bits of truth. if the HD6000 will arrive as expected there will be a supernova of GPUs and comfortable prices for all markets.
the more GPUs there are the more affordable they get

dude no offense but you are an idiot the 2gb 5870's already beat the 480 and you can substantially overclock them the 5970 eats your 480 and a gtx 295 combined and the new 6000 series are really going to stop nvidia in it's tracks nvidia has been having to many problems overheating thats why they cant make a dual gpu fermi ati has no problems with heat and beats nvidia in almost all benchmarks and most of the games were designed for nvidia graphics cards by the way my friend is on his second 480 because it fried and he didn't even overclock it ha ha ha ha ha!
I'll break down your post right quick if you are in fact serious:

1.
dude no offense but you are an idiot the 2gb 5870's already beat the 480 and you can substantially overclock them
First off, do some research. It has already been shown and proven through benchmarks and real world gameplay that a GTX 480 is in fact faster then a 5870(it's around 10% faster most of the time)

Some examples:




Now one advantage that could come from the 2GB is gaming at a higher res... but the actual power backed behind the card is in fact just a smidgen slower then the 480 most of the time.

2.
the 5970 eats your 480 and a gtx 295 combined
No shit, a dual GPU card beat a single GPU card.. so surprising. The fact that a 480 can even come close to a 5970 is in it self an amazing feat all on its own. And it beats a 480 and a 295 combine? when?.. where?, show me how you came to the conclusion that a single 5970 can eat the power of a 480 and 295 combine. I would love to see that graph.

3.
and the new 6000 series are really going to stop nvidia in it's tracks nvidia has been having to many problems overheating thats why they cant make a dual gpu fermi
Says who?, we have basically zero information on the 6 series cards, how can you or anyone else who isn't an AMD/ATI employee predict that the 6 series will ''stop nvidia in there tracks''. And stop over hyping the heat of the fermi cards, they're not near as bad as people hyped it out to be. It's more then possible to make a dual GPU fermi card, it just needs a die shrink and a little more efficiency.

4.
ati has no problems with heat and beats nvidia in almost all benchmarks and most of the games were designed for nvidia graphics cards!
As for heat yes, AMD's current offerings do in fact run cooler than Nvidia's. But beat's Nvidia in almost all benchmarks?.. how can someone determine that?. And most games are designed for Nvidia cards?. It's called marketing, Nvidia pays devs to have there logo flash in games, but that doesn't determine that the game is in fact coded to utilize Nvidia cards more, the only time that it really occurs in the use of physx in games.

5.
by the way my friend is on his second 480 because it fried and he didn't even overclock it ha ha ha ha ha!
That's because your friend is an idiot, who probably bought the 480 off his dads money and tried stuffing it into a small case with shitty cooling.

x86overclock, regardless of the validity of your post, insulting other members with name calling is unacceptable. Please post in a friendly and respectable manner in the future, the entire forum would appreciate it.

Thank you.



*Keep on topic people... This isn't a "X" card vs. "X" card thread and there will be consequences for those who think otherwise.

@CDdude55
1 - Why would you use Hardware Canucks graphs on TPU, which has W1zzard?
2 - Don't forget post #44, and #132, coz you keep going back to the same issue and it would suck to have the thread closed because of it.

Um yes like me our 5770's can do much better with quad core cpus than they do with duel cores (even an OC'd 550)
