Let's not get carried away now, depends enitrely on the game. Some games just run better on 6970 and vice versa as benchmarks show up until 1600p. I personally game on 1080p so 570 was the right choice for me, I don't think I'll ever upgrade past 1600 because of limited room space. Both cards are great, I believe both are great choices for consumers. If you prefer Cuda cores, folding, NVIDIA driver updates, and lower fan noise grab the 570. If you prefer higher resolutions than 1600p, ATI driver updates, 3 monitor support on a single card, and don't mind the high fan noise, grab the 6970.

Nothing like topics to get carried away with nonsense like normal.

In most cases the 6970cf > 570sli, they trade blows in a few games, just like normal. Either setup will basically max out games on a single monitor resolution. 6970's tend to be slightly better when you up the resolution because of the 2gb ram.

As for this physx nonsense, it's personal opinion. It's cool to have if you put it to use, otherwise it's not at the point where you need to have it.

I personally will probably never get a 2560x1680 monitor, much rather spend that money on a good quality LED backlit 3D ready monitor. Which is why I've decided to make the switch to nvidia. Although I'm gonna wait until the 6990 and gtx 595 to come out before making a final decision.

Looks interesting? As you can see, once the CPU is powerful enough, it makes little difference if the GPU does physics - even in the 3D Vantage CPU 2 benchmark where there's no 3-D graphics to speak of, it's all "physical".
Of course, this probably wouldn't apply to games designed for PhysX of which I own none, so my obvious choice was the 6950.

Yeah, I was in the same position before, and I chose the HD6970, damn happy I did!

I had a GTX460 for Physx before, and it was just useless, I didn't even use any game with Physx, just Batman: AA, and I finished it already, so no point, sold the 460 lol.

I like to let graphs speak for themselves. The poster can make decision for him or herself.



I couldn't find any with GTX 570 crossfire comparison. Just look at the single benchmarks and it would give an idea of ratio to each other if you'd run two in either SLI or Crossfire.

The argument here is what is best for each individual end user needs which will vary from person to person. Both companies are great and no wrong choices in my opinion.

Vantage... not the best benchmark for someone who actually plays games. The problem with the 570/580 is that SLi scaling is nowhere near 90+% like the ATi cards are at present. So you can't just double the cards single relative performance. Not how it works. Look up multi gpu scaling and you may learn something.

No sense in buying a card with only 1GB of onboard ram when more and more games will use more than that.

More ram only helps with multi monitor set ups (5870 eyefinity 6 vs 5870). Also unlocking a 6950 could end up bricking your card if you incorrectly flash the bios. Also the 6950 has 6+6pin and 6970 has 8+6 pin. So idk how well youd be able to oc or anything. The gtx 570 is a great card, stomps the 5870, and beats the 6950 in most if not all 1920x1200 res. The 570 is close to the 6970 and sometimes trades blows with it. However crossfire now a days scales pretty well so i am unsure about the out comes when it comes to sli vs crossfire

Anyone who thinks an HD 6970 can outperform a GTX 570 has to do some research. I am not being bias because I have a GTX 570, I say so because a GTX 560 Ti is just a step behind an HD 6970 and when OCed, beats it in most benchmarks.

Also, I still beleive physx is still waiting to be fully utilized and it is not a gimmick, but a way to really make an NVIDIA GPU shine in some games and make the game more interactable
