HD 5xxx vs HD 6xxx Benches

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
A few interesting diagrams showing HD5xxx kicking ass and taking names compared to the newer HD6xxx:

Amazing CF scaling for the 6870 though:

This isn't exactly anything new. It's common knowledge the 5870 usually beats the 6870 in benchmarks. For practical purposes, I'd take the 6870 over it for better tessellation handling (5 fps more in Crysis isn't worth the price difference anyway).

Tessalation is worse for a single card too:

*see OP EDIT*

And both cards can be found on newegg for 269$ smile.gif

The 6870 is not supposed to compete with the 5870.

Its not like the 6870 was a replacement for the 5870, I don't see why it should perform much better.

I'm not saying it should smile.gif Just posted the benches

EDIT: The 6970 is also slower than th 5970 and models don't go any higher for both series. If the HD69xx is not meant to replace HD59xx, is it created just for people who want Slow cards? Cause I don't know any.. tongue.gif

It's a shift in naming scheme.

68XX represent the new mid-range cards (i.e. the previous 57XX).
6950/6970 are the new high-end single GPU cards.
6990 is the new dual-GPU card.

6990 will be the upgrade to 5970. 6950/6970 are the new 5850/5870.
