MSI GTX 560 Ti TF II vs MSI R6950 TF II - Page 4

By the time 2GB becomes mainstream, I'd be willing to bet that the 6950 will be what the ATI 4xxx series and Nvidia 2xx series are today.
Doesn't make sense? It's already possible to use over 1GB at 1080p. You'd be foolish to get a 1GB card right now.

AMD has doubled triangle throughput with its Radeon HD 6900s, which easily outdo the GeForces when the triangles are actually displayed – NVIDIA has limited the GeForces to give an advantage to the Quadros. When it comes to ejecting triangles from the rendering via culling, no Radeon comes close to the high-end GeForces however. With half as many units dedicated to the GeForces, the GeForce GTX 560 Ti has a lower triangle throughput than the Radeon HD 6870 without culling but similar to the throughput of the Radeon HD 6950 with. Overall the Radeon HD 6950 offers superior geometry processing.

The use of an adaptive algorithm which regulates the level of tessellation acording to more or less detailed areas (depending on distance, screen resolution and so on) gives significant gains across the board and is more representative of what developers will put into place. The gap between the GeForces and the Radeons is then reduced and the Radeons sometimes even move in front in certain cases.

Possible by doing what? By pushing games like GTA or Oblivion to maximum view distance? In almost every single game out there 1GB is still plenty for 1920x1080. You'd hardly be "foolish" to get one, that's a huge exaggeration. Maybe if you wanted to "future proof", but by the time games are using over 1GB at 1080 better cards will be around.


To OP:

If you're looking for a card that will last you, both will do fine. A game at 30 FPS is just as playable as a game at 31 FPS.

Tesselation in the 69XX series cards is far better then most people give ATI/AMD credit for.

The funniest term used here is 'Future Proof'... Seriously LOL...

The next best thing is 24 hours away...

What fits your budget, what res your monitor is, what type of games do you play add up those questions = your next video card.

Lol! I don't know about you stefy, but when I'm playing games the last thing I'm doing is watching my video ram usage for spikes over 1gb. I'm usually, you know, busy having fun playing my games.
Basically without scanning a memory usage graph you're never going to notice the difference between 1gb and 2gb of vram at 1080p during a game.

We all get that according to you no graphics cards with less than 2gb of ram is worth buying.

The cards are pretty much on par with each other with the 6950 slightly ahead, but the 560 ti has some nice features such as cuda. It's personal preference. I just thought I would show that you can use more than 1gb vram at 1080P. I ran the Crysis Warhead benchmark at these settings-->

Good for you.

Get back to me when you have something worthy of a reply.

Both are excellent cards. I would take a look at your current setup and see how your doing as far as gddr usage. If you dont need more than 1gb, Id go with the 560ti. The 560ti is also cheaper which would be the selling point for me given that I dont really need anything more than 1 gb of gddr.

Thread cleaned.

DO NOT start arguments. Do not reply to them. Do not even acknowledge them. If I have to come in here again, I'll be forced to start handing out infractions.

Keep it civil.
