GTX 460 SLI vs HD 6870 Crossfire - Page 8

post #71 of 82
Average 6870 CF OC will be faster than 460 SLI OC. 6870 is between a 5850 and 5870 in terms of performance. 460 is slightly slower than a 5850.

OP, getting a single card like a 570 or 6970 might be better so you won't get any possible CF/SLI headaches.

HD6870's are better than GTX460's, go with AMD!

HD 6870 > GTX460
HD 6XXX CF Scaling > GTX4XX/5XX

HD 6870 CFX is a clear winner.

Between the Nvidia 400 series vs AMD 6000 series, I'd say the AMD 6870. Unless your comparing it to the Nvidia 500 series cards.

If you do go AMD - Sapphire AMD 6870 Vapor X $229.99 US. Sweet arse card review.

If you decide Nvidia then I'd suggest EVGA Nvidia 560Ti $249.99 US for a bit more money for a bit more performance where resolution is under 30" monitor less then 1920x1200.

Everyone will have a manufacturer they prefer, those were only my opinion. But the AMD 6870 to answer your original post over the GTX 460 for sure, not to get off topic.

2 6870 in Crossfire scale better than 2 460 in SLI, though.

I think you missed the part where he stated that they're the same price in his country.

Which one will give more performance?Both of them are equally priced here in Bangladesh & theres no other high-end card in stock now.I will be buying the system tomorrow. It will be on a Core i7 920 system (already bought).From what I've heard Nvidia does better at tessellation than AMD.I will be gaming at 1920x1080 resolution on a single display. I want to play all the latest games (mainly DX11 Games) in the highest possible FPS & Settings.Please suggest me the best config between the two.

Thanks in Advance,
Rakin
