VTX 6850 Vs. nGTS450 Cyclone !?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
hello guys....

I was just reviewing the VTX 6850 1GB GDDR5.... comparing it to my nGTS450 Cyclone, I found out that it really overcome it in several aspects, though my nGTS450 overcome it in Core, and Shaders, but the ATI 6850 still rocks really, so now I would like to take your opinions...

do you think I am better off getting that Ati 6850 ??

(options are limited, so please don't suggest me another cards, sanctions on Syria are making the shops restricted to specified stuff and amount.)

what do you guys think ?? is the difference that big in gaming ??

- also there are other matters I would like to ask about, so do you think that Physix is that worthy to not to waste with an ATI card ??

- I always hear that ATI guys suffer from bad drivers for their cards, so is this problem stile alive ??

- I know that Nvidia cards have PysiX, Cuda, Tessellation... what can I gain with ATi cards ??

- Adobe applications avail from Nvidia cards, Especially Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe Premiere, so in what side do these applications avail from ATi cards ?? or there are no benefits even ??

sorry for asking a lot, but you know.. I have to discuss this here with you before changing to another card that I didn't use before.


best regards.

AMD 6850 is the stronger card of the two, I'd go for that. The driver issues seem to be sorting themselves out as of late - the AMD cards tend to run cooler and should o/c fairly well. Just my 2 cents though smile.gif

GTS 450 is very very weak. The HD6850 is much faster.

GTS 450: 8518 GPU score 3dmark vantage
HD6850: 14198 GPU score 3dmark vantage

HD6850 is 75% faster and takes only 20 more watts.

6850 is a much better card. GTS 450 competes against 6750 I think. AMD/ATI has OpenCL instead of CUDA to accelerate workstation applications.

Actually driver thing is a hit or miss. I am using Radeon card right now because Nvidia never managed to solve the TDR bug. Again YMMV. PhysX is a joke, in no way it should be a factor of deciding a GPU.
