What is the ATi 5870 equivalent in a AMD 6k series? - Page 2

What other perks are there? If I were to go Nvidia I was thinking a 570, what would the benefits be there?

Nvidia will offer you ROCK SOLID drivers like ALWAYS...
Physx - darn sweet in certain games
Much better AA settings (again on certain games)
3D Gaming (with glasses and the right screen)

And thats it really, btw you do pay more for this, nvidia is generally more expensive in the same way AMD is cheaper than Intel,

Lets get some facts in here.

Here is a chart showing graphics card performance.



Shows the 6950 is 2% faster than the 5870 and the 6870 is 9% slower.

Nvidia's drivers aren't "ROCK SOLID" always, in fact far from it.
Name 10 games were Physx really made the game better or more enjoyable.
AA settings are often pretty similar.
3D can also be easily done with AMD graphics systems.

Never had good luck with Nvidia's drivers. However, AMD/ATI drivers have been great for me. It's luck of the draw I guess. Minecraft constantly crashed on my 9800 GTX+. However, on both a 4870 and 5870, Minecraft was rock solid (and performed better). Pretty subjective, I know, but I've always had a smoother experience on my 4870 and 5870 than other nvidia cards I've had before.

As for the question at hand, I'll agree with the others about the 6950. It is roughly the same as a 5870 for performance. However, the 6950 is superior on tessellation performance. Keep that in mind for future titles.

6950 is the 5870 replacement, the 6970 is the step up. The 6870 will beat 5870s when in CF though.

Ok, first off, the 6970 is ATIs replacement for the 5870 and the 6950 is the replacement for the 5850. I see people saying the 6950 is the 5870 equivalent, but thats comparing side by side performance. The newer replacement will be faster and have more features, not perform the same. Why would a company release new cards that performs the same as the older one as the replacement successor? It you just want a card that performs the same as your old one, it's not a direct replacement for the new card, but a downgrade to a newer card.

The 6870 replaces the 5770 and 6850 replaces the 5750.

And HD6770 replaces what ?

The HD6850 and HD6870 were the replacements for the 5xxx series. Not only are they faster in regards to tesselation, they were meant to be cheaper.

Most benchmarks on the HD6870 were done at launch when drivers weren't mature.

Nothing, it's just a 5770 that got a shiny new name. Regarding the chart a guy posted, there's no way the GTX 570 is almost as fast as a 5970 and the GTX 580 being faster than the 5970... Then there's the GTX 560 Ti beating the 6950 2GB, etc... That's full of BS.

Nope. You were not around I guess when these cards were about to come out and AMD had there replacement chart all out in public and stuff. 68xx series replaces 57xx series. 69xx replaces 58xx. Performance of the cards all prove this as well. Even if the 68xx series have better tessellation then the 58xx series, they are in no way faster. Which means they cannot be the replacements.
