So the beating of the 570 / 570 SLI is that much more impressive.
Evidently results with new drivers are very hard to find ....I hop to get some of the ATI guys to post again now that we all know who the trolls are we shouldn´t feed^^.




Your Tom's Hardware picture does not give any valid information in comparison to one vs the other. but for a 2 card set up, the 6950s really seem to beat the 570s.
I like my Direct CU GTX 570 because of the thermal properties and the quietness. I am in an mATX case though, so Crossfire does not work well for me.
atleast not without massive heat.

Maybe they scale better at 1080p because they aren't as strong single and have more clock cycles to burn than the 570 SLI comparing.

I have absolutely no issues with scaling, in fact in Crysis 2 I've seen great scaling.

It is very hard to find valid results because they have all been conducted with outdated drivers
But I am trying my best to revive this subject again and engage it from a different perspective
And in my oppinion the picture does serve its purpose.
570 is a great card! espeacially the DCU version maybe you would like to post some benchmark results?

I can... i need to get some Benchmarking software. I only have the Metro 2033 bench at the moment...
I have my Card OC'd to 900MHz at 1.125v... I will post comparisons between the stock settings and that setting. But I do not have it in SLI, nor do I have an HD 6950 to compare it to.

and as far as what I mean, unless I am missing the reason why you're posting it.. is that it does not compare apples to apples in a sense.
It says how much the SLI of Card X improves over Card X.
And the XFire of Card Y improves over Card Y.

not comparing one to the other. this might confuse people.

You are right it is a little confusing but what matters are the results
The purpose of those pictures and link are to prove the performance level of the 6950 ...after all this thread is called 6950 CF vs 570SLI right?^^

But do not be mistaken it is only a quick taste before the real results come
And yes please get some benchmarking software and share your results

I guess on second read, it does show that the 6950s perform better in X-fire over their single card than the 570s do in SLI compared to their single card.

guess i confused myself there lol

Since we don't have any information for all we know the scaling could be based on a AMD 955 at 3.2GHz.

In which case a slower 6950 would require less clock cycles, and when in CF there would be more clock cycles representing a greater "gain" via CF over the faster 570/SLI.

In all its sexiness 6950 CF + unlock= nearly GTX 580 performance. Who'd know. EDIT: I just got a report that Intel Core i7-980X is a bottleneck. Dang it, must crank it up with a 990x. (Irony if you didn't get it).

Hmm, so not only is 6950 CF faster than 570 SLI, it consumes less power as well. The 480 sure is great performance per watt.

Yap
Still you should consider that with the outdated drivers these tests were conducted with the performance of the 6950´s was restrained by at least 15-20%...so add that to the already pretty big win over the 570´s

I just have to find some evidence that the driver update really delivers that performance increase ..ATI states it ..but I prefer to show to the guys here in form of realy gameplay footage

Not long now ..and we will see some new results with updated drivers and unlocked 6950´s and won´t have to rely on the benches and thests that were done with the old ones
