69xx series
http://www.widescreengamingforum.com...Review_Page_10

Can somebody please point out to me how these results are so amazing that people are justified in running around OCN going 'ZOMG look @ teh SCALING on these cards!!!!1!1!!!!"

??? ???

What am I missing?
doesnt matter look in benchs the 6870's almost always beat the 470's
http://www.guru3d.com/article/radeon...firex-review/1
look at the bechs 470's are in the midle between the 6850'5 to the 6870's...

the 6XXX in CF are a huge jump in scaling from the 5XXX
the GTX4XX where better in scalling then the 5XXX but the 6XXX are simply better then the 4XX (except the GTX460 that got awesome scalling allot better then the 470,480...)

6850 is weeker then a 5850 but in cf its stronger then it!

the GTX470 SLI is a bit stronger then the hd6850's and about pair with GTX460 1GB SLI
My build :)

Indeed, AMD put out cards with almost no overclock potential, vs gtx 470s with 600 core it will win, but the gtx 470 has insane overclocking headroom with proper cooling.

My card has a near 50% overclock.

ya the 6XXX got almost non overclock potential a 6870 can barley get a 10% overclock with voltage increase.

I personaly rather get a 470 over the 6870 the 6870 may be cooler but it doesnt matter in my opinion, I saw reviews of it trying to compare a 6870voltage oc vs a 460+OC the 6870 was a bit faster then the 460 after both war overclocked (the 460 wasnt overclocked to it maxed only OC without any voltage increase it was a 460 overclocked from the brand with a bit higher volts then usual but the reviewer didnt try to push the voltages up only the frequencies...) and the 6870 just got insanely hot it was around 90C and the fan was laud
the little extra power over a 460 was just not worth it and the 470 is also a grate OCer (the best, especially the 768MB version) and with a good case you can be sure it will run on good temps (HAF sires of cases will be grate something with a huge side fan...)

in the end a 470 should be a better choice over the 6870 if you dont care overclocking the card, the 6870 does got better scaling so if you dont plan on overcloking or dont have a good case a 6870 should be the way to go unless you dont care to have a near 100C temp card... and I personal would get a 460's-1GB over both of them ...
