Hd 5870 vs. Hd 6870

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok im building an ultra portable single card rig. I am trying to decide which card would perform better. The 6870 which is a little cheaper or the 5870 is a little more $ but has more steam processors and I can get a free 1tb hdrive trough newegg if I order it now. Any advice is much appriciated.
Thanks,
Jake

Free HDD with the 5870?

its a no brainer.

5870 is the best single card. But if there is any chance of CF (which sounds unlikely) get the 6870.
As the 6870 almost doubles the performance in CF in some games, whereas the 5870 is a stronger single card, but only like 70% extra performance smile.gif
