BTW, the latest gen is 99.9% of the time bringing improvements...
5870 was awesome in it's day, now the 6870 replaces it...not the 6950...

I don't understand how you can fail to notice. The GTX 560 Ti gets 60fps at 1920x1200. The 6950 gets 64 fps. Now I'm pretty sure that is a difference of about 6-7%. As for the witcher its a difference of 2fps from 40 to 42, so that is 5% - So your claim of "that difference doesn't actually exist" is false because it does. :/

Quote:
So why are you trying to cherry pick one or two games to claim the 6950 is way faster? That's not how averages work.
I can find other reviews, but these are just a few. I could easily as well find games which run much better on AMD (Just like the games here where the 560 Ti wins which are nvidia-friendly) but that wouldn't be entirely fair. So lets do it like this - All at 1920x1200 -

HD 6950 wins: AvP | BC2 | MW2 | Crysis Warhead | Crysis 2 | DA2 | Metro 2033 | SC:Conviction
GTX 560 Ti wins: Black Ops | Civ V | JC2 | SC2

Both are the same in Dirt 3 and World in Conflict

So as we can see, the HD 6950 is faster in 8 games, and the GTX 560 Ti is faster in 4 games so what does that mean?.. On average the 6950 is faster. Don't get me wrong, the 560 Ti is great, but its hard to recommend it over the 6950 which is faster and cheaper. Sure people will speak of their experience with each card, but the OP wanted to know which performs better. Next time you decide to debate with someone regarding performance, please read whatever they link to or some results of your own before making claims.

Actually the 6970 replaced the 5870, and the 5870 is faster than the 6870 most of the time.

Bottom line, the 6950 is a bit faster than the 560Ti and uses a bit less juice to do so. And it's usually faster in games where they both get less than 60fps. And that's more important.

These aren't benchmarks, they are games. I'm sure most people who upgrade GPUs do so to play games. Sure if the OP uses programs which make use of CUDA would benefit greatly from the GTX 560 Ti, but since he did not mention it in the OP, I'm presuming he doesn't
Thank you for the post. This card will be used for gaming only, on a 1080p screen, no folding or anything. Also no keyboard and mouse games, mostly driving games and some games that can be played with a 360 controller, as it is going in this racing cabinet.

Just looking for the best performing card in the sub $250 price range as a replacement for the 295 thats in there, as I have other plans for the 295
I may be able to turn the board 90 degrees with the cpu cooler on the bottom but then I would have to re-wire everything... It'd be nice to just swap out the card. Does anyone know if the 6950 is longer than the ref 295?

My only concern with the 6950 is if it's longer than the 295, I might have problems as the space that I have is pretty tight as seen in this picture-

According to the Gigabyte website it is 290mm long. So you can check to see if the card will fit or not. Alternatively you can grab the Sapphire HD6950 here which according to their website is 260mm.

Nvidia all the way. Performance is very close between these two and the 560Ti is cheaper. Not to mention games that utilize heavy tessellation (think Crysis 2) perform way better on Nvidia cards...

The BFG 297 is 270mm, I'll have to take a look and see about the extra 20mm..
something for me to consider. The sapphire would fit though

I didn't know that PNY had lifetime warrantys... nice price too! Cool

Don't know if you noticed but in the review I linked, the 6950 is faster in both Metro 2033 and Crysis 2, both DX11 games and both which are pro-NVIDIA. The "tessellation performance" only matters if all somebody does is play Heaven all day, and I don't think you can actually play that. That 560 Ti you linked is cheaper but PNY...

Actually PNY lifetime sucks. Its the lifetime of the product, so for example the GTX 400 series came out last year and are already EOL, and that means the lifetime warranty is gone. And since PNY offer a 1 year as standard, this means that their 1 year is expired also. Very useful right?.. Why the hell would anyone buy PNY over Gigabyte or MSI is beyond me. Their support is terrible.

PNY is fine. Its just a reference Nvida card anyway. Also, all 6xxx series cards have been having issues with Crysis 2 after the patches...
