It's a better card only if you desperately need a radial fan to blow the heat instantly out of your case.
Take a look at this review. "Grafiikkapiirin lämpötila" = "GPU Temperatures" and "Melu" = "Noise".

Project Mjölnir - AMD's Focus on Improving AMD Catalyst Drivers

Quote:
Project Mjölnir is a multidimensional effort aimed at increasing performance and providing improved stability of the AMD Catalyst software.

The AMD Catalyst 11.4 early preview, code named Mjölnir I, already available to the public (link) with Mjölnir II and III to be available in the months to come. This driver encompasses major improvements for the entire AMD Radeon HD 6800 and 6900 Series. Users should see a boost, particularly with anti-aliasing and large resolutions in numerous titles:

* Up to 70% performance improvement in Civilization V
* Up to 49% performance improvement in Call of Duty: Black Ops
* Up to 23% performance improvement in F1 2010
* Up to 21% performance improvement in Wolfenstein MP
* Up to 15% performance improvement in Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X
* Up to 17% performance improvement in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat
* Up to 28% performance improvement in Metro2033
* Up to 33% performance improvement in Left 4 Dead 2
* Up to 26% performance improvement in FarCry 2
* Up to 15% performance improvement in Crysis Warhead
* Up to 50% performance improvement in Unigine Heaven
* Up to 22% performance improvement in Batman: Arkham Asylum
* Up to 19% performance improvement in Aliens vs. Predator


But the goodness does not stop with this release. Mjölnir I is only the first in a series of drivers we intend to release this year, all of which should provide big performance boosts.

I did yesterday run a Unigine bench at default vga & ccc settings and same cpu speed (4 Ghz) as I did before with the 10.10e release. Guess what did I get with the new 11.4 Early Praview? Only a poor 3.7% increment:


Catalyst 10.10e Fps:28.2 Scores: 709

th_20101118193001_UningineHighDef4Ghz10.10e.jpg

(http://www.hwupgrade.it/forum/showpost.php?p=33700620&postcount=3508)

Catalyst 11.4 E.Preview Fps:29.2 Scores: 735

th_20110311192708_UningineHighDef4Ghz11.4Prev.jpg

Looks like the "up to 50% increment in Unigine Heaven" refers maybe only to the tesselation factor (2x) or is just another Amd branded bull**** lachen.gif

It did mention "users running high resolution or with anti-aliasing.". I would do it at 1080p If i could (if I were you), and max out the AA. Although this is for the 6900 cards, I did a comparison between 11.2 and 11.4p here, and most of these should apply to the 6800 cards too. I'll do a few quick ones when I get my 6850 in a few days.

My both tests were run at (my monitor's) max resolution (1680x1050) but with the AA 4x and Anisotropiy 16x smile.gif
