ASUS HD6950 doesnt seem to be performing as well as it should - Page 2

post #11 of 17
GTX 570 = 6970, not 6950.

The GTX 560ti is the card that is on par with the 6950 for the most part. Also, in BF3, Nvidia cards are generally superior and take less of a frame hit from AA.

I own both an Asus DCII 6950 (unlocked to 6970) and a DCII 570 (2 to be exact) and I ran them both at the same settings. Granted my 6950 has unlocked shaders and higher stock clocks, but they are still fairly comparable. The 570 eeks out just bit more FPS but its not really super noticeable.

Right, and that's how it should be since the 570 ~ 6970 or so. wink.gif

Honestly I think you are just expecting too much out of your card. The 6950/6970 may have been AMD's "top tier" GPU, but the 6xxx series was released in a different sort of way. The 69xx series was a "top tier" series according to AMD, but not a "top tier" GPU series when compared to their performance overall, which is why it only competed with nVidia's mid-range GPU's and was priced accordingly. That's why the 69xx series competes with AMD's new 78xx series, and not their 79xx series.

1000MHz core, 1410MHz Memory here.


runs fine, pretty content with the performance. sits under water - core only. Core temps never peak 65 degree's in most cases.

I didnt make my point right. I was running it as a 6950 most of the time and the performance isn't so much more different. Its close.

Seems to be fairly standard from what I've read, sadly.

Here's my 3d mark11 scores w/ game settings in ccc for comparison cards (s) run at 950/1400 but are fully unlocked w/ voltage control your single GPU actually beats mine slightly

I was frustrated overall with just one card so saved up and got another, great move for performance with games that are worth a damn, there is still some games that are just crap for FPS like saints row the third or some of the need for speeds all related to driver issues

1090t @ 4.0 w/ 1 cards http://3dmark.com/3dm11/2961801

1090T @ 4.0 w/ 2 cards http://3dmark.com/3dm11/3002852

FX-8150 @4.45 w/ 2 cards 3 http://3dmark.com/3dm11/3401478
