6870 OC CF vs. GTX 560 Ti

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Hey, guys! Sorry for making another topic about 6870 and GTX 560, but I couldn't find a thread with this information (sorry if I missed it).

Ok, so I'm helping a friend setting up a new build, and as you may have realized, we have a little problem here. His choice is between 2x HIS 6870 Turbo (overclocked) and 2x Gainward GTX 560 stock. He won't be overclocking the 560's, so that's out of the question. They are both at the same price, so we are wondering; which is the best buy? We have looked around and the 560's seems to do better in some games and sometimes it's the other way around. So we couldn't really get down to a conclusion.

A few pointers would be awesome biggrin.gif

Looks like the 560 edges the 6870 in most scenarios.

The factory pre-overclocking (20MHz clock) of the HIS HD6870 Turbo is so small that it does not make a significant improvement over stock 6870. When 560 SLI competes with 6870 CF, 560 SLI wins across the board.

Single card comparison:

SLI vs CF comparison:
http://www.slivideocards.net/nvidia-gtx-560-ti-sli-vs-amd-radeon-hd-6870-crossfire-review.html

Actually, the real AMD opponent to the GTX560 is not the HD6870 but the HD6970 1GB.

For bonus, both can do 3-monitor setup but the GTX560 can also do Physx too.

So, I would rather take a pair of the GTX560 Ti.

Because the HIS comes with a (small) factory pre-overclocking.
