ATI GTX 560 Equivalent

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
What is the rough ATI equivalent of the GTX 560 ( within 10% +/- performance ), and is it worth getting an ATI card for support for 3 monitors of a single card ( I know you need to use 1 display port )?

The HD6870 performs on par with the GTX 560

The HD6950 is slightly better.

Firstly. Yes, its worth getting for 3 monitors though you may not be able to max out every game out there.
Secondly. The 6870 is 5-10% slower than the 560 on average, where as the 6950 is about 5-10% faster but has 2GB vram and does much better at high resolutions (3 screens). If you're looking for a 3-monitor setup, get the 6950 2GB. Its only $10 - $20 more than the GTX 560 afaik. And you will need 2 NVIDIA cards to run 3 monitors.

This sums it up nicely.

ATI 6950 is in the same price range and will be the closest comparison to a 560, however...

Are you planning on running games across 3 monitors? If so what resolution? Don't forget that if you plan on running triple monitor gaming, you might want multi-gpu anyway as the higher the resolution, the harder it will hit your GPU. I have 3X 470's and they are just about adequate for 5990 x 1200, so if you plan on doing something like 3X 1080 displays or even 3X 1680 x 1050 you might want something a little more powerful than a 560 (such as sli 560's...)

If it is for your sig rig, you might want to consider some upgrades before going to a higher end video card, PSU won't be enough, and the E5300 will kill you at stock speeds.

^He's right but the AMD card seem to do better at higher resolution anyway and for about the same price you get the 2GB vram which could help in some future games, but really helps in 3 monitor setups.

Didn't catch those parts.. Hell, the E5300 will kill it even at overclocked speeds. You really want a quad core for multi-GPU setups. Preferably Nehalem or Sandy.

I'd still go with the 6950 2GB though. 1GB Vram will not cut it at those resolutions with or without anti-aliasing. I fill 1GB up regularly at only 1080p.
