6870 or GTX 560 (Non-Ti)? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
I thought you were looking at a 570 or 6970? I'm going to assume that it's your budget that's making you down grade?

This topic already has a couple threads. GTX 560 vs 6870 or HD 6850 or GTX 560. You'll get extra info on those. One on General section other on Nvidia section. Both already two pages long.

In short, they are on par. Either is going to give you the same performance.

I had 6870's and did a benchoff with a 460 owner back in December. I was just barely ahead of him with both of us over clocked. (Only difference I had an i7 950 he had a i7 920 - but we looked at graphic scores).

The 560 is a tad better than the 460. The 500 series is redesigned FERMI architecture with slightly better performance and less power consumption than the 400 series. Even if it's the same cores, bits, etc... Making the 6870 vs 560 now on par with performance.

Either way you'll be happy with either. No wrong choice. smile.gif

I think if you can swing it, you'd be happier with a 6950 or 560Ti. One step higher than your asking now but not as much money as the 6970/570 choice you were asking about earlier.

Edited to add: Also found out though it gets close, the 6870 dosen't over clock to stock 6950 performance. 6870 OC to 6950 stock? It's just shy not being as good as an over clocker as the 6950 which can reach 6970 performance or a 560Ti that can reach 570 performance.

try and find a 560 ti for about 180 190$ when they go on sell
or you can always try and find a 6950 for about 200$

other choises to consider is maybe a gtx 480?
shop arround and try to find the best bang for buck card.
and Always try to find 2nd hand cards like a asus or a xfx.
something that has easy warranty if you ever need to rma

so i had CF 6870 and a single gtx 560 before, used both setups before for crysis 2... both couldnt do ultr/texture/dx11 , but where able to play at high settings w/ texture pack/dx11. but before you go on saying why the CF 6870 was the same as one GTX 560, its just because the profiles back then for CF/SLI were non existence so basically i was running one 6870 even though its in CF. I ditched both and went with one GTX 580 problems solved biggrin.gif

so i must say both pretty much the same. hope this helps

for a little bit more (~$20-25) you can get the Ti version on sale right now w/ batman game! If you don't like that game, you can sell the code and not install it for another $20-30.

I've always like the 6870 at that pricepoint. You can find them for dirt cheap now

GTX 560 is an overclocked GTX 460 but still marginally outperformed by HD 6870. 6870 sits in between a 560 and 560 Ti.
