HD 5xxx vs HD 6xxx Benches - Page 3

post #21 of 42
Once AA starts getting turned up, especially at 2560x1600 and higher Eyefinity resolutions, the 5970 will start to choke pretty badly compared to a 6970, which will put them on roughly even footing. Not bad for a single GPU in my book. Throw another in for Crossfire and it won't even be a fair comparison.

As was stated already, I think you have the number naming scheme confused for this new generation. Even still, the highest end single GPU (6970) is not meant to take on the highest end dual-GPU card from the last generation (5970). Wait until the 6990 rolls out to make that comparison in early 2011.

You have the benches, you see the scores. What's left to talk?

Geez, for everything I do I take heat. Merry Christmas to all, hope the thread helped someone.
No, the issue with your thread, and especially the title, is that you're saying 5XXX is better than 6XXX. That can't be further from the truth.

What you should be saying is that 58XX is a little better than 68XX, which by now, pretty much everybody knows.

The 6870 was to beat the 5770, and the 6970 was to compete with the 5870.

Thanks this thread made me see which upgrade im getting next. I want to go single card since I'm having some issues with crossfire.

I'll be getting either a 5870 or a 6950 at 250-260~ price point. Right now TD has the XFX for 304-30 rebate - 6% + 7 shipping totaling for like $263. Maybe I'll wait to see if the 6950 goes down in price with some rebates.

edit: Actually maybe getting a 6870 is the cheapst option... I'll probably break almost about even after selling my 5770s and I have the option to go Crossfire 6870 when I need it and will probably be cheaper.

I knew this would happen as soon as they announced they were changing the numbering scheme. Someone should shoot the entire marketing dept.

This.
yep thanks +rep.

I don't know why people always have to argue about which card is better. This thread is more of a comparison to see which card is better in the aspect of benchmarks that way people see what card to get.

Yes, and you go on to make the following severely misleading observation:

Did you know the 4890 is better than the 5450? Should I make a thread showing HD4XXX kicking ass and taking names compared to the newer HD5XXX?

You really thought it worthwhile to tell people that the dual-GPU 5970 is a better performer than 69XX single-GPU? Why would it not be?

You are supposed to care about the progression of the series. Otherwise it's comparing apples to oranges.

You're right that I can't disagree with the validity of the comparisons. But I sure can disagree with their relevance. It is stupid and meaningless to say that 5XXX "kicks ass and takes names" compared to the 6XXX when you're comparing high-end 5XXX to mid-end 6XXX and dual-GPU 5XXX to single-GPU 6XXX.

I know the naming scheme change was confusing for some people, but this is just ridiculous.

OMG, ok, I'ma say this just once.
This thread is supposed to Guide people in deciding which card to get. Many Many Many people do Not know about the shift in model numbers. Now you, smart ass, tell me Why shouldn't I make a thread that has all the benches, all the results and comparissions and tells the people Why should they get 5870 instead of 6870. ?? I'm off, this arguing is pointless.
