Because the OP is going to get 580s in SLi or HD 6970s in CFX for a 1920x1200 monitor right?

Says the person who bought 580s in SLi that are outperformed by 6970s.

I like how you also try to imply the 6970s are slower than the 580s which is factually inaccurate.

I think factual accuracy should be considered when we evaluate who looks retarded.

The 580s came out on top in 5 of 7 games. If you're trying to claim 2 of those were "ties" because they were close, you can just as easily discount BFBC2 as a "win" for the 6970s.



Seriously though, why are you raging so hard over 580s? It's not like anyone is forcing you to buy them...

Fail troll is fail.

The 3Gb 580 Lightnings would win all day, and like said before depending on the resolution and amount of monitors you are gonna be running, the 580's will be even better.

You're right in the fact I should not have included BC2 for a win but again, let's go back to the conclusion of this review:
Quote:
When looking to the Radeon HD 6970 CFX with 2GB of RAM per GPU, it was more of a trading blows kind of scenario.
I really don't care what they spend their money on I just like to stop misinformation, one of which is the statement that "580 3GBs in SLi are faster than 6970s in CFX."

If he wants to pay $500 for better driver layout whatever, just don't say he's getting better performance.

Uh....

In many modern titles, drivers can make or break gaming performance.

I suggest you reword that better.

Uh, but he is getting better performance. You're the one spreading false info.

And those are just vanilla 580's, not the highly overclockable lightnings...

Except those benchmarks show the 580s and 6970s trading blows and have almost equivalent performance. You can also overclock the 6970.

You were also wrong to assume he was gaming at 1920x1200. For his specified resolution, the cards perform almost identically:
http://www.hardocp.com/article/2011/...card_review/10

That review is with the lightning edition 580.

So where is your evidence he is getting better performance from the 580s at 2560x1440, the resolution he is specifying? You did say you:

This was obviously false.

There are plenty of cases, such as for this OP, where the 6970 is just as fast if not faster than the 580s.

Why should I reword it? I talked about driver layout, not functionality.

reword it as:

"... better driver layout, or whatever..."

As it stands I read your statement as

"... better driver, layout, whatever..."
