[Geeks3D] Radeon HD 6870 is Twice Faster than GeForce GTX 460 in MSI Kombustor

I just found on [H]ard|OCP forums the MSI Kombustor 1.1.3 score of a Radeon HD 6870 (with Catalyst 10.10). The settings are 1920×1080 fullscreen, 60 seconds and unlock power draw UNCHECKED (default mode), no AA and no postfx.

This is getting better and better!

Seems AMD is about to really shake nVidia's world. Remember that the 6800 series are the new mainstream series, so they replace the previous 5700 series.

This probably the best and most anticipated GPU battle since the Geforce 6600 series!

Not to defend nVidia, but notice how the 460 is running with a Core 2 Extreme and the 6870 a phenom ii x4... that's gotta make a difference?

Absolutely not!

Core 2 Quad is faster than the Phenom II clock-per-clock.

So no, no excuses. And MSI Kombustor and Furmark are not CPU dependant.

Not to defend Nvidia either, but the Phenom II is clocked 1000MHz faster than the C2E...

I believe CPU speed doesn't matter in this kind of burning tests for the GPU.

Anyway, a 1ghz overclock would not account for the double performance, so CPU is not a factor.

While this is what they told us, the prices would indicate otherwise.
