Mind u im shader unlocked on my 6950. My buddy with a 570 was getting 35-40 average lowest he says was 29 and highest at 50. but he says he had to turn some things down cause he was crashing to desktop with vram being maxd out. His card was running stock, I was overclocked to 950x1500. So if your going to get the 570 make sure its the 2.5gb version if not, then get the 6970.

I haven't crashed out yet because of Vram running out on my 570s. I ran it for about an hour also using just one of them to see how it performed and it did fine. High in the 80s low in the 30s, on 1080p.
What resolution was he running? Something tells me he wasn't crashing out because of Vram running out, that it was something else.

There has been twenty threads about the 6970 vs 570 for BF3, don't you think people will be a little agitated it would be asked again?

no it doesn't

You have to remember most of the members on this forum are hardcore nerds that get little to no lovin'. So yeah they are going to blow up over retarded stuff. That aside, I have a 570 and my brother is running a 6970 we don't turn on fps meters just enjoy our game and i can't tell the difference between either. Would have an enjoyable BF3 experience on both.

lol i was just playing BF3 tongue.gif

on my 6970, i run everything ultra, no AA, and vsync on. Game is super smooth, no tearing or any stuttering. Thats all with the 6970 running stock speeds.

I get minimum ~40fps on my GTX580. Max I don't reallly know since I always run on vsync, but the vsync kicks in quite a lot of times.

Average frame rates are from 45- 52fps. I'd say that's very good for me. And yes, I usually max my VRAM.

This is in ultra. Max AA, AF possible and HBAO.

By stating

"Battlefield 3 HD 6970 vs GTX 570" and "Please explain why."

you understood what he was asking for?

I didn't and that is why I am defending some people when asking what his intended question was originally. The OP was looking for a quick opinionated question and there are actual facts on the matter which would have been answered with a quick search.

Replying with "God" at the beginning of a reply to questioning his original question was not polite and as such he angered some members.

The real unfortunate thing that bugs me with this is that I wish all people would take the time to read their posts before posting them so they are easy to comprehend and cannot be taken offense to.

I think these summarize my thoughts best.

“One of the greatest victories you can gain over someone is to beat him at politeness.”

and

“Politeness is the art of choosing among your thoughts”

I don't take the time out to do this on all posts (how could I) but I feel someone that is a new member to OCN just might take advice from a more seasoned member.

Enough of my OT rant tongue.gif

6970 2GB. Why? Because stone cold Steve Austin said so.

Maybe he should have used Allah or maybe Buddah or just Golly. Really? My mom was catholic and my dad was jewish and I grew up in both religions. Maybe because I was I am a little more hardened to the word. Defending people who make a point of making fun or being rude to a newbie here is just wrong. as far as that I hope the OP found the info he was looking for and as far as the amount of "The Same Posts" dude it happens all the time.

I really reread the posts and found them to not be polite but kinda rude.
