Radeon 6850 Vs GTX 460SE - Page 3

No, it's really not. What it lacks in CUDA cores, it makes up for in power consumption, overclocking, and heat output. 920MHz core @ 59C max load is crap? Most regular 460s can't even accomplish that with 1.075V and almost all SEs I've seen seem to consistently clock at ~900MHz+ core.

I'm getting tired of all this SE hate. It's barely slower at stock speeds in comparison to the 768MB, and smashes it when overclocked at higher resolutions.

Hell, if anyone wrote support for the EVGA SE's bios, mine would do 1000MHz on a mere 1.1V and still wouldn't pass 65C.

Get out with your ignorance.

OP: go for the 6850. X-fire scaling has vastly improved and if you ever feel the need to pair your 6850 with another, it will own.

Now why are the 5850's and 5870's better than the 6000 series cards? And what nvidia cards do they compare in performance to? And I would preferably like to buy something at either CompUSA/Tiger Direct, Fry's or Microcenter(Westmont location if your looking at their website). Microcenter DOES pricematch with newegg as well so thats more-so a preferance for a better possible price.
Because 5800 is the high end 5000 series while the 6800 is the mainstream 6000 series replacing the previous 5700 segment.

The 5800's marekt is replaced by the 6900 series.

I had the 5850and 5870 they were great cards which should be comparedto GTX460 1GB and the GTX470/GTX560 Ti.

haha yeah, but I thought this was an appropriate thread to ask the question.

Thanks for the info.

I actually used the ATI Catalyst Control Center to overclock my card for now so stay on the safe side.

Bumped it up from 820 core to 875 / 1200 memory.

Any idea or feedback as to how much i can safely overclock with rivatuner?

Thanks

To put this into perspective:
6850 replaces 5770
6870 replaces 5830
6950 replaces 5850
6970 replaces 5870
6990 replaces 5970

I dont get why they didnt give the 6850 the name of 6770, 6870 as 6830 etc and kept their names the same.
