It's not a clean comparison between the brands anymore. Hasn't been since Fermi launched. It depends on what you need the card for more than anything. Benchmarks mean basically nothing anymore. All that matters for gaming GPUs is FPS in the game engines that you use most often (and upcoming games).

OP, even though I suggested the 570 SLI earlier, price drops in the last week have made it where you really should have done SLI 480s w/ AXPs. Absolutely nothing can top it on price/performance atm, since new 480s can be had for as little as $220 now, and they can overclock individually past stock 580s. So sorry OP, you didn't make the right choice because you didn't consider it an option. That said,
You mean like this?




My i5 is bottlenecking, maybe I should crank it up to 5.1 like the ATI guy and see if I can't get 5 more fps.

If I was considering spending money for waterblocks I would have gone with the 480´s yes but on air a serious overclock is almost not possible with these cards as reported in many threads and tests.

Also in my country the whole price thing is a little different ....in Austria a GTX 480 sells for the same price a 6970 does.
So the best price/performance card in my case would be the 6950.
Also the Twin Frozr III costs less than the reference one here lol^^.

I'm getting 875 core with air cooling, which is a 44% overclock hottest I've seen it is 77c while benching.

Do you have any correct information at all?


The TF III doesn't unlock the reference cards do, which is why the TFIII costs less. I read that in your thread, oddly you must have missed it.

Oh, but you're wrong. Two friends with unlocked TF III. There's also a review around where they unlock one of these cards.

I said with AXPs (aftermarket air coolers). One of the non-reference 480s actually just has an AXP slapped on it. With an AXP (still air cooling), a 480 can easily OC to trade blows with a 580. On water, the only thing beating a 480 is a 580 on water.

Where exactly did you read that lol?

Stefy we need to stop feeding the troll ...he is already overweight.
Seriously just irgnore his posts and wait for people that are actually serious about that matter.

I read wrong, the TFII doesn't, the TFIII does. I'm just surprised I remembered any of it.

480´s are probably one of the best overclockers I admit that.
But the same goes for the 6950 on water.
That card has the most documented 1 GHZ core clock achievments of all the 6XXX series of cards.

You also have to admit that even the reference design version of the 6950 has far better and more efficient cooling compared to the 480 ..not only because of the vapor chamber but also because of the again far superior power consumption rate.

Also a very big issue with 480´s is stability ...no card in Nvidia history except the 295 has shown such an amount of faulty,damaged and smoked cards due to the inability of keeping a high clock stable at stress than the 480.

Also as already mentioned earlier the power consumption is insane especially in SLI which also highly contributes to the massive heat development and resulting instability.

Those problems do not appear with the 6950 due to far more enhanced architechture and technology.

But enough about 480 ....this about 6950 vs 570
