2x 6970 or 1x 5970 - Page 3

post #21 of 33
I had 2 5870's which outperformed a 5970, Now having 2 6970's there is a huge difference especially in dx11 games @2560x1600.

a 6870 crossfire will kill a 5970 much more a 6970 CF. you do know that 6970 CF is much more expensive than a single 5970 right?

Your statement is false. 6870CF will beat a 5970, but 6970CF beats both.

Actually 2 6870's is barely if any faster than a 5970.

A 5870 is still quite a bit faster than a 6870. A 5970 is really 2x 5870's underclocked

You are partially correct, but transferring the conclusions of single card comparisons to crossfire situations, which is problematic.

In crossfire, the better scaling of the 6000 series more than makes up for the difference in power between a 5870 and a 6870.

Also in newer, tesselation rich games the 6870 catches up to the 5870 further.

Crossfire 6850's will typically beat a 5970, crossfire 6870's beats it conclusively.

I unlocked my 6950s and am in heaven with my eyefinity setup. I upgraded from a single 5970.
