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.
Hmm. So a higher memory interface has no impact on overclocking? Guess I may be wrong about that one. But Hey, I'm here to learn just like everyone else.

This is my 1st time using AMD/ATI and I will honestly say that it's not bad. I really do not see the fuss over AMD/ATI except for not being physX compatible but there's an easy solution to that if you're using a mobo that has at least 2 pci-e slots.

So after being an AMD/ATI gpu owner, the mystery question for me is, "How long will I stay with AMD?" It depends on what the 7900 series can do. I'm considering to go back to Nvidia (cuz that's all I have owned in the past) but the more I keep playing my games, the more I'm realizing how nice AMD/ATI gpus are

If you're feelin' froggy to make the switch, go for it It's been extremely positive for me & you're hearing that from a Nvidia player that has enjoyed Nvidia from the Ti-4400 to the GTX 460.

Oh, that's a nice comment, thank you... : ) I think that all depends on my "inner battle"... I am one of those guys if ain't broken don't fix it, so it is really tough for me to switch from nVidia to AMD... : ) They are all top class I know, and I am not saying that one of those is better/worse than other...

Memory bandwidth is a product of the width of the memory bus and the memory clock rate. The memory bandwidths of the Cayman and GF110 reference cards are as follows:

6950: 160 GB/s
6970: 176 GB/s
GTX 570: 152 GB/s
GTX 580: 192.4 GB/s

Of all of these, I would say the 570 is the only card that begins to show memory bandwidth restrictions when the core is overclocked beyond 850MHz and even then it's not that obvious. Overclocking the memory as well compensates for it, naturally.

I've owned all of the cards mentioned in this thread, and while it is amusing watching everyone argue over who beats what, I would just get a 6950 for your resolution. No need to waste money on more when new GPU's are on the horizon, and it will be plenty fast.

And how would MSI GTX 560ti HAWK compare to 6950...? They are about the same price...

A 560ti should be slightly slower than a 2gb reference 6950.

the nvidia fanboys were prowling aswell.

I wouldn't go for a 6970 or 570 if I were you.

If it was me, I'd probably go with a 560Ti, but thats just because I have an irrational hatred for ATI drivers. A 6950 would be perfect, not everyone has driver problems
