How Hard does 69xx Crossfire Rock, Really? (56K Warning) - Page 3

Which apparently isn't going to happen ... and is unfortunate, cause I also kinda feel like the reviews on the web aren't that consistent, plus don't take OC'ing into account in most cases.

Now, based on what people around here were saying, I thought that was at least some chance that my 470's would be left in the dust by the 580-SLI beating 6970's at least on one of these tests or another. Heck, the 5xxx series did really well in Crysis vs Fermi, so ...

I hate to make suppositions based on the *lack* of evidence, but I am beginning to wonder if you are correct, that people with these setups won't post because they're not 'winning'. Which would be a bummer, cause this isn't a competition, I just want to see how these new cards measure up at the top end of OC'ing to my 'older' tech.

And I'm always down with supporting AMD against the behemoths ... when they got it going on
I hear ya man, for people like myself I have to go with Nvidia simply because I do video editing and work with CS5 on a daily basis, and I benefit from CUDA. But when I originally put my rig together I wanted a 5870.

Your set up is pretty solid right now ( and take into account how much you paid for those cards, did you get them @ $249 each? ) and if there are gains with the 6970's for example, I don't think they'll be huge gains that are upgrade worthy, specially at 1200p.

Like I said earlier, I'm personally gonna wait it out for Kepler to experience a real upgrade, if you upgraded to 570's for example, you will end up feeling like this guy:
http://www.overclock.net/nvidia/9015...ly-faster.html

Besides, the OC you have on there is pretty solid, and I'm pretty sure it slightly exceeds 570 stock performance, so in theory you have 570's in SLI right now.

It'd be nice to have more real world user reports.

Hey brett,

I received two 6950s in the mail today and they both succesfully unlocked to fully functional 6970s. Boy, do I love buying cheapers cards and flashing them to more valuable cards.

I'm actually about to go celebrate the new year with some friends but tomorrow I should have some time to run all the benchmarks you requested. I can overclock my CPU to 4.2 for the time being, if you like.

470 SLI is such extreme overkill for 1080p. Save your money and upgrade your monitor config to 3x24 or 30.

We don't even have overvolting or decent drivers enabled for the 69xx cards yet anyway.

I think you're missing the point man. He is looking for someone with 6970's in Crossfire to compare raw data with the same i7 setup. I'm rather curious myself....but my 5970 keeps on chugging along for my current resolution.

I just got two 6970's in crossfire. I'll happily help. I can benchmark at 1920 x 1080 or 5670 x 1080.

Wow! You rocked the crysis bench.

It will only get better with more driver releases I think for those 6970s.

I forgot to mention that these results are with the 10.12a drivers. Bearing in mind this is basically the first driver release for the 69xx series, performance should rise quite nicely!

On the downside there is no doubting CF 6970's is not for silent-gamers. It's not terrible but it reminds me of the days of my 4870X2 in terms of noise.

However using a custom afterburner fan profile my temps don't go over 81c (72c one card, 81c the other) after some BFBC2. Highest fan % was 55 and that is pretty loud. Thankfully the game sounds drown this out. Bear in mind i have a one slot gap between my cards. Without that your temps and noise will be worse probably.

At the end of the day when you put two 11inch graphics cards in a pc your going to get heat and noise. It comes with the performance.
