6970 is to 580 as 6950 is to 570. that's a better comparison.

so now we know that BF3 favors AMD?
I'm sorry I have derailed this thread away from BF3 discussions(although people do ask what video cards they will need for BF3) but my last response on this subject will be this:
The only difference between the 6950 and 6970 is the SP and default clock speed. Most ref 6950s can unlock their SP to be exactly equal to a 6970. My non-ref MSI 6950 TFIIIs unlock and OC to 880Mhz and get exactly the same results as a 6970 ref.
(The memory timings on the two models doesn't even account for a 1 fps difference between them btw.) I suggest we move to another subsection of the forums if people want to continue this.
Ok, I'll stick to strictly BF3 game discussions from now on and not about video cards.

Overall 580 is a better choice for me because Alpha was using 1.3 or so and half the stuff were deactivated there : / so now put max graphics / everything from final release and AA... there you go, eat more than 2GB (On 3 screens) the only reason I went with 3GB 580 else I wouldve bought 6970 or 6990 but I already went through hell with ATI 5970 drivers and don't wanna deal with them anymore, wanna try green side ^^ too lazy to even install 580's just sitting here, useless for now anyway.

I'm think right before release date that either AMD or Nvidia will come out with something new, Like a BF3 edition gfx card, combo deal, or something to boost sales. But thats IMO.

I hope BF3 runs better with Nvidia than BFBC2 did. Hopefully Nvidia step in sometime before release and help DICE optimize it to run equally across ATI and Nvidia. I don't think companies have even really broken through the tip of the iceberg with what computers can handle. Look at consoles, they have 6+ year old hardware and developers are still managing to do wonders with graphics (if you think about the hardware). Hopefully DICE are doing some epic optimization and not rushing it to suit EA's wants. The constant need for upgrading our PC's would not be necessary with proper optimization, if you think about it. Perhaps things will change when Euclideon sells UD to developers.

LOL, I just woke up. Perhaps my post-sleep induced ignorance has lead to a collapse in my overall intellectual capabilities, at this moment in time.

You guys ever tune into GUNNS? He does news videos on games and had something I thought was rather interesting...


Very interesting. As much as I don't want the game to be like call of duty, weapon customisation is great!

After all: This is my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine.
