Best Single GPU Graphics Card? - Page 5

post #41 of 49
Now that I've had my new GTX 580 SC for a little while and have been playing around with overclocking, I'd like to update my scores.

I'm @ 907Mhz GPU Clock / 1111Mhz Memory / 1813Mhz Shader. Getting 14% gains out of this card on air cooling.

43.5 Gpixel Pixel Fillrate / 58.0 Texture Fillrate / 213.3 Bandwidth 1.1v voltage tweak.



Did my 3D Mark 11 benchmarks at Performance level 720p as shown above. Checked it also in high performance 1080p stable.

Played Crysis @ Gamer mode 1280X720 AA x4 stable. Cut through it like a hot knife through butter.

Played Crysis @ Enthusiast mode 1280X720 AA x4 stabe. Nice eye candy.

I had specs a bit higher prior and saw some very slight video spotting in Enthusiast mode so I backed down on specs just a tad from 922Mhz core to 907Mhz and only lost 1.0 GTexels / 0.5 Gpixels / 6.7 bandwidth. No more slight video spotting and plays very stable at full throttle. Didn't want to brick my new GPU and the loss was very very minor to be stable.

Touche'

Let's talk about cards that are out and we can actually get stats from and post instead of speculate anyway. There isn't a GTX 600 or AMD 7000 so why talk about something that dosen't exsist or we don't really know true specs. LOL.

Playing Crysis AA X4 Enthusiast 1280X720 resolution.

907 Core 1111 Memory 1813 Shader 14% Gain on card.

Adjusted my fan settings to run a little higher by 5% this time.

3D Mark 11 benchmark at mid level performance 720p = P6568

Highest temp full throttle is 67C with fan at 76%.

Idle temp 42C fan 44%.

875 Core 1046 Memory 1750 Shader 10% Gain on card.

3D Mark 11 benchmark at mid level performance 720p = P6354

Highest temp full throttle is 66C with fan at 71%.

Idle temp 40C fan 43%.

Changing fan setting can alter how hot the card gets. Need to figure out what works best to keep those cards cool. Heat really isn't an issue with the GTX 580 like the 400 series cards were.

That's why I think to have the best card without the heat issues as prior series makes the GTX 580 that much more attractive as the best single GPU in my own opinion.

IS this still even a debate?

its useful, but you cant just rank graphics cards. different cards are better for different things. and although one might excel at getting you FPS in one game, it will loose in another game, and it might be much better for other reasons.

having said that, i dont believe that the 6970 > gtx 580.

have them fold against each other and see that happens. i guess to each their own, but i think the 580 is an overall better card.

however, it depends on what the OP wants to do. if he folds, the 6970 is out. but either way i wouldnt pay the price of a 580 for a 6970.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti. Although this initially appears to be a decidedly odd choice seeing as the GTX 580 is, in itself, technically the most powerful card in nVidia's latest line-up, the 560 Ti is, when considering the price, the far better deal of the two. A card slightly under half the price of the 580 while managing to be over half as powerful is, to me, a fantastic bargain, especially seeing as it beats out most of AMD's current-gen range with ease, and conquers even its more powerful kin (the 570 and 580) when in SLI.

Unless you're looking to run the GTX 580 in SLI, I wouldn't bother with it; there's a far better card lurking lower down in the range if you look (and the overclocking is fantastic).

I will admit your statement is true. Same can be said about the AMD 6870 in SLI against the GTX 580. However in situations where A. a person can only have one card and B. in situations where two cards are not being taken advantage of and only one card is......the GTX 580 is the best SINGLE GPU graphics card. Price for performance being set aside.

Also two of these which I plan on getting is the fastest SLI cards period, currently anyway. No two come close except for AMD 6970 but even then GTX 580 beat them SLI and would be considered second.

Been learning about overclocking lately I'm still wet behind the ears. Got my system stable in what I think is peak but I'm a bit off on my CPU specs that will let me reach the 4.0Ghz club.

Wanted to post a SINGLE EVGA GTX 580 SC card stat GPU @ 912 / 1111 / 1824 Mhz. Intel i7 950 CPU OC from 3.06Mhz to 3.80Mhz.



Anyone like to post a different SINGLE card that can beat would be nice. That's the topic of this post.
