Coming to AMD territory? - Page 4

post #31 of 55
The only honest knock on the 570 I'm aware of was that folks were poping the VRM's in heavy overclocking. That may have been fixed though as I have heard nothing more on it for months.

I love nvidia cards, i have always been a fan of nvidia, but i decided to try a ati card a while back, must say i do like the price/performance difference. i am not biased on ati/nv, but i am on the best bang for my buck. so far it has paid off. i couldnt be happier with my investment.

If there is somebody who had both cards and just tell me his conclusion, that would be great... xD
Before I came here I was running cf Sapphire 6970's....I sent them back due to micro stutter I was having in BFBC:2. After that I went with the 570 HD Super clocks in sli and also sent those back because they were some hot little buggers. Now I'm currently running 570 Classified sli on my Bedroom PC and only 1 580 3gb Classified for my main pc because I sent one back.....



I've owned 3 different brands of 570's; MSI TF:III, HD 570, and Classified. I have to say that the MSI TF:III was the best overall card I've owned so far. I would say the 580 Classified, but it's way overpriced in my opinion.




Based on my experience, I prefer Nvidia because you just get more for what you pay for. I'm not knocking AMD, but you can find a TON of threads on this forum about AMD users buying a low end nvidia gpu to pair with their AMD card just so to run Physx....When you're doing that, the price/performance goes out of the window.


1x 570 (W/cuda,3d, physx and surround)= $300-$330 avg.
vs
1x 6970 (w/eyefinity) + GTS 450 for pyhsx = $480 avg.

^ This is what I mean about price/performance going out of the window....

Now this is what I call a fair, unbiased opinion. I'm glad you're enjoying your investment.

Not only has the reference been improved, but the non-reference designs that have come out so far are pretty amazing. Honestly, the non-reference with the added power phases is what the standard should've been from the start.

No it doesn't.

The 6970 is not memory bandwidth limited, and indeed has more memory bandwidth than the GTX 570...which is throughly irrelevant as the 570 isn't really memory bandwidth limited either.
^This, I literally laugh when I read Raw's misinformed posts.

Just flip a coin for the GTX 570/6970.
They both trade blows really; both cards will net you great performance.

Thank you for that link, really helped me... More or less they are similar in performance and price, so I'll go Harvey Dent way... Haha, jk, when I got all my money on the place I will go there take both cards in my hands and just do it, decide, I won't be wrong in any scenario, I suppose... : )
