Gee Wizz, ya been really busy reviewing the new gpu's. How long does it take till the final process is done?
Thanks for all the fine info
It's good to know that a 20mhz overclock just puts this card only 3% behind the 5870. It does seem to be quite a dud overclocker though.
Their 6850 was a bit of a dud too. Hope it's not a common thing.
Picked up this...wish I would have wait for the HIS... they make great cards..
Sorry wizz but wtf??? GTX480 faster than HD5970???? (performance summary)
Of course they are. This is more of the replacement for the 5770 and 5750 If I am not mistaken.
You, as well as I know, the Bench marks vary from test to test, the 5970 kicks ass imo... and Im not grabbing a 6 series gpu till I see the best the 69** has to offer.
Nice try AMD :shadedshu
Hmmm....The performance summary seems to be off...In most of the tests, the turbo 6870 is equivalent to a 470 in most games; particularly at higher res. Even the stock 6870 only marginally trails it. How did the 470 jump 5-8% in performance, when last week it was only 3%?
I think the relative is skewed from the 2560x1600 tests, with the 480 having a massive lead most likely from the higher vram (per gpu).
Then why even with overclock not pas the 1230MHz on the memory ...
Great review tho Wizzard.
Im not paying extra 20$ for this pathetic OC :\
ok guys this is a noob question. (no sarcasm intended here I just want to be enlightened)
I am wondering why is it when an ATI/AMD card is reviewed the "no CUDA support" is a con? (I know that CUDA is for nvidia) and an nvidia card is reviewed the "ATI stream" is not a con. Both ATI stream(now APP) and CUDA are a GPGPU technology right? am i wrong?
Does anyone know when custom 6870s will be allowed?
Don't know why AMD didnt settle for around 950MHz Core and 1200MHz memory, gives some 10 fps boost with what 10-15W power trade-off...
hey guys 1st post here
i just build my AMD PC 2 days ago
i got the Standard 6870 xfire, but do you guys think this turbo one is more worth to get?
i mean, it's only a 20MhZ bump and 70MHz for clock.
and also it's only a mere 2-3 frames upgrade
but i heard that the Turbo has the iceQ cooling? is that true? or this turbo version is purely just overclocked version without any other new features? ( other than the HD3D which i dont think many people will use that feature for now )
It's simply a marketing name. The cooler is the same as the reference one. The ONLY difference is the clocks.
Aye no custom 6870s at all yet Twe!
there are now.. LOTS of them
i am 2 weeks too fast in buying 6870...
i'll wait for the HD 7xxx series next year..
Can always buy custom cooler, it's like getting non reference only you can get horrendously large heatsinks on!
