Also that chart you posted seems way off

Actually, they do... And that graph just proved it. 2560x1600 isn't "eyefinity res" either... 570s beat 6970s in single and double card configurations as well:

An extra 720MB does nothing to help. Even CallsignVega's triple 30" setup only used 1.7GB out of the 3GB cards he has in Crysis 2.

People don't seem to mention price often when comparing the 6970 and 580. In a comparison like this, keeping in mind that you can unlock a 6950 to run at 6970 speeds, the choice is a no brainer.
ATI has nV at pricepoint gunpoint.

Are you 100% sure you can still unlock new 6950s? I thought that was only for the first release that had "sanded down" PCIe power connectors. I don't think they overclock quite as well as true 6970s either.

memory does nothing huh?

That's right, in realistic gaming it does nothing. If you crank the AA up to ridiculous multipliers that even your eye can't tell the difference between, then obviously more memory will be needed. 4XAA had no problems at all.

The extra 720MB did nothing to help the poor performance and Xfire scaling in the review I just posted.

Your review is the only one that shows poor xfire scaling every other review shows xfire scales quite fine so something is fishy with that review, also i own 2 6970's and they do quite well.

And just because the 570's and 580's cant run lots of AA that makes it ridiculous, get real 4x and 8x are hardly ridiculous

and just for good measure another review with the 6970's beating the 570's in BC2

Post another review of 5760x1080 with 6970s then, instead of just talking. Anyone can claim anything without having to prove it.

I also own 570s, but what does that matter? Saying that doesn't lend any credibility to what you're saying. Benchmarks are benchmarks.

Also, stock clock comparison...
84.7 FPS with 570s in SLI with 8xAA but a single 570 gets 77 FPS with 4xAA?
This just proves how pointless stock comparisons are. My DCII 570s are at 1020Mhz so they'll do even better.

Don't worry. PoopaScoopa has a pillow with a picture of those slides he's posting everywhere on it, and he face-roll them every night. It's an love/hate relationship.

And even at 2560X1600, 4XAA and 8XAA makes quite a difference. It's clear as day. But since Nvidia is lacking the memory to use it, now ''it's ridiculous'' to use it.

That review he loves so much is the only one getting those results. We all know that. Every other reviews are showing that with 11.4 drivers, the 6970 is now head-to-head with 580 in 2 cards set-up, and often better in 3 cards set-up. And Quad-SLI scaling is a joke. But really good for e-peen, and for those craving for attention. We all know that.

The only place where the 580 is ''better'' is in 1 card only set-up, and with lower resolutions. Because of the crappy Nvidia scaling, 6970 Crossfire and 3X6970 is head-to-head and most of the time better then 580 SLI and Tri-SLI... for almost half the price.

But hey. Fanboys will always be fanboys. People are actually buying the 590 here on OCN. So it's proving my point.

Ouch. You should put your feet where your mouth (or keyboard) is. Look at the minimum fps here. Much better with 6970 Crossfire. 570 SLI doesn't look good here. Not like your beloved review. Deal with it.

32 against 17 minimum fps.



37 against 21 minimum fps.



27 against... 1 fps. LOL.



Yes. The 570 is totally outclassed by the 6970 now. The 570 is a severely memory limited POS.
