OCed 5850 vs Stock 470 - Page 5  

post #41 of 79
Ladies and gentlemen lets all take a deep breath and relax. Here are some benches if u r wondering. This is from my old review, that can be found here



Sapphire 5850 Toxic comes factory overclocked @ 765/1125mhz instead of reference 725/1000mhz. Both Evga GTX 460 and PNY GTX 470 are reference design and clocks. My test system is an overclocked to 4.0Ghz i3 540 and 4 gb of Wintec Ampx 1333 ddr3, which is more than enough to avoid any bottlenecks for the videocards.
I am using Catalyst 10.9 for the Radeon and Nvidia 258.96 drivers. OS is Windows 7 x64 Home Basic. All benchmarks performed at 1900x1200 resolution. Cards were tested stock and overclocked. I ran these titles:

Battlefield Bad company 2
Crysis
Far cry 2
Unigine Heaven Benchmark
Lost planet 2 Benchmark
Metro 2033
Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2

Overclocking details:
5850 toxic - 805/1285
GTX 460 - 810/1620/2140
GTX 470 - 745/1490/1745


So lets start with BFBC2
Settings: everything maxed, Vsync-off, hbao-on, 4xAA, 4xAF



Crysis:
Settings: everything High, noAA, no vsync


Far Cry 2:
Settings: everything maxed, 4xAA, 4xAF, no vsync.


Heaven Benchmark:

5850 stock:

5850 OC:

GTX 460 stock:

GTX 460 OC:

GTX 470 Stock:

GTX 470 OC:


COD MW2
everything maxed:





Metro 2033
overall quality - HIGH, no AA, 4x AF, tesselation ON, depth of field ON




System power consumption
GPU stressed, CPU idle





GPU temperatures





I have to say that during the stress testing all fan speeds were set on auto. Both 5850 Toxic and gtx 460 were very quiet, practically inaudible, And GTX 470 had a noise of my friends impreza's turbo engine
I want to mention though that during the real gameplay (MW2) it wasnt hot (below 85C) nor loud, maybe a bit louder than the other cards though.

The GTX 470 can be OCed to GTX 570 levels on air. I wanna see the HD5850 doing that.

Also the performance in Metro 2033 is terribad on the ATI side in DX11.

5850 has no problems overclocking to 975/1200.

When all is said and done, I think you'd be happier with a GTX 470, after considering OC, drivers, SLI, etc.

Go with the GTX 470. If you want to make sure I'm not biased, check out my sig rig.

>.< You DO realized how badly I want that 470 right? It's taking me everything I have to NOT overdraft my account before my tax return gets here. XD it's getting bad. I wanna give ATI a try again as the last ATI card I had was a trio of 4770s.

WAO!

Well, if you're looking to go ATI again, I've only heard great things about the 6000 series. Have you considered them? (I know price is an issue).

No problem, couple of old-school benches are always better than pointless debates. In the end both gtx470 and 5850 are great cards still more than capable of decent gaming, overclocked or not. But when i see the price of $185 for brand new reference 5850 or here
i say it's a steal for that money, even though its not the best brand out there.

>.> so you grab a factory OC card and put it against stock reference designs? Although that OC doesnt do too much to the scales, for the sake of this debate it isnt a straight comparison between bone stock/Highest Bench scores for the 3

OP: This thread wasnt a good move on your part, this was asking to become a bashing.

5850 @ 1k core is a great performer, but I will still stick with the 470, but for 50 bucks more you can get a 560 which is near my gpu in performance.

fact is for me, my 470 plays anything I want and very playable framerates. I only need 60fps in any game for my 60hz monitor. anything over is just for benchmarks and your epeen.
If I wanted more power I'd overclock more but I don't need more.
You do not have a GTX470, You have a GTX465..

It says GTX465 in GPU-Z, On the box the card come with and on the card itself...

That's a decent review, Overclocking wise the 5850 barely got a decent overclock with around 10%? were as the GTX470 got a good 20%+ overclocked?
