To read this review go to: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/HIS/Radeon_HD_5970_CrossFire/
i think the driver still immature for Xfire
must wait till 4 - 6 six month
Oh Nvidia...where are you?
so much for this being a GF 295 Killer youd think it would be getting way more frames even for immature driver sets.
yes i agree. the driver get mature, and this card will be more powerful
Busy showing paperweights to the press.
Not necessarily true Eldair. Hell on those tests it failed, I wonder why it wouldn't run them. Drivers seem to be the logical clue and we know ATI has issues with those at times. When these mature, they will be kick ass. It doesnt really make logical sense to lose FPS when xfired compared to just one beast. This bitch is a mother though Ill tell ya that.
wow a single 5970 is a monster.
Seems like that i7 was the bottleneck in alot of those benches
Wow, a 5970 crushed crysis.
•Some things just look better in pairs™
Why is there no Overclocking section of the review?
Any details about heat consumption other than in the conclusion? Actual numbers would be great as a part of the review.
The 5970 has slaughtered the GTX 295... Double FPS at some Res's.
The corssfire is disappointing but it seems to be bottlenecking somewhere...
The 5970 could have yield better results or fps if this was tested in Vista x64 or Windows 7 x64. Too bad, it this review used the 32-bit OS...
good observation and a valid point. but still impressive on 32bit xp nonetheless
Have you guys seen Hexus review of this card? It's a totally different story! You don't see the 5970 double the fps of the GTX 295 or anywhere near that. This is probably one of the best reviews of the 5970.
Great Job, W1zzard.
Hey you 10 month old GPU... Happy birthday to the ground!
why did wizzard not use 64 bit OS?
This Is Madness!!
Any vantage scores available on these in single and crossfire?
show me your data
the benchmark process simply went *poof* closed, nothing i could do, tried several times
Im not all that impressed to be honest. I mean yeah its the fastest setup out there but I thought we would see almost double the FPS in most areas.
Anyways nice review W1zz!
It's never almost double though, with some games, it gets quite close.
Don't forget that this review was done with the 9.6 drivers and we're now with the 9.11.
If memory serves, W1zzard said he would be doing a full re-bench in November. Was he referring to these reviews or not, dunno
you have a cpu bottleneck.
Hell a PHII at 6.5 ghz is most likely the only config that wont be cpu bottlenecked, and thats not hard to get, but i doubt anyone would like to pay the price and the pain of doing refill og Lhe!
thats why you dont see double the FPS.
Wait till more demanding games comes out, then we can see almost double, or double fps.
