ATI equivalent to GTX 580 now or future? - Page 2

If it has to outperform a GTX 580 in all scenarios, you'll need to look at Crossfire or wait for the 7 series.

Thanks for this, I guess I'll look towards the future.

Yeah at the moment ...

HD-6990 > GTX-590 >> GTX-580 > HD-6970 >=< GTX-570 > HD-6950 >=< GTX-560ti

AMD really has no single card to match up well against the nVidia GTX-580.

Hate to burst your bubble but 6990 and 590 trade blows and are equal in overall performance. Neither beats the other on every single test.

And why give up the 580 ? I did read this before posting and have to tell you that playing at 120hz ( 60fps ) is perfect. Human eye doesn't distinguish between 60 fps or 200 fps. What's more then 60 fps it cannot distinguish. So why give up your 580 when you won't possibly see a difference in games or movies ?

HD 6990 is, the most powerful card out there, only it's a dual-gpu card. You will have to wait for HD 7 series

why dont people ever count that the 6950 can unlock to 6970 and overclock some therefore making this like 260$ card compete with the 400$ ones

Here is a good running order of performance. The 580 stands alone as the best single GPU with nothing giving rival. Except the dual GPU cards, obviously.

6990 2GB - 590 1.5GB
580 3GB / 1.5GB
6970 2GB - 570 1.2GB
6950 2GB = 560Ti 2GB
6950 1GB = 560 1GB
6870 2GB = 560 2GB
6870 1GB = 560 1GB
6850 1GB = 550TI 1GB

By the next series both AMD and Nvidia will have a new set of cards to compete with each other, again side by side type comparison.

It's impossible to say what next AMD series card will do better than the current 580 until those cards are released with results of performance proof.

The newer cards from both camps are expected to run about 15% - 30% better performance and the big hype is that it will take 50% less power consumption to do it.

6970 is abit slower some times, but the closest to a GTX580

If you lol'd then where are your scores in the 6990 vs 590 thread to prove it?

Its a valid point but the people represented on this website are not the average consumer who has absolutely no idea about overclocking or unlocking or any of that beyond plugging it in and letting it work (if they can even manage that). When I was buying my second 580 the other day the guy in the store tried to convince me the HD5770 was faster "because he put one in the display computer to use 3 screens at the same time". wink.gif

6970 is the closest, and does beat it in some AMD optimized games, but overall close still doesn't take the win. I have nothing against the 6970 its a great card, I owned two of them. Fact is, the 580 is faster.
