Every single card of those should theoratically be capable of a 1 GHZ core due to the fact that they already are factory overclocked and of course due to the above mentioned facts.
Since more members have gathered again I am happy to post the fat listing again and hoping that some of you Nvidia experts care to add the facts missing on the 570 side
When you litter facts with opinion, they cease to be pure fact.
"Fact 8:Most of the comparisons conducted by test labs and other reviewers that engaged the 6950 vs 570 were using outdated drivers which restrained the performance of the 6950 by at least 15 to 20%."
Really dude? Nvidia's drivers haven't given the 570 at least a 10% boost since December? Sure... Yeah, ATI drivers have improved more, but the 570 had a head start...
Or how about this:
"Fact 4:Most of the non ref designs such as for example the Twin Frozr III and the ASUS DCII have individually designed Voltage Controllers and enhanced structural designs for increased overclocking efficiency.This grants the card to not only be overclocked far higher and more efficient it also enables the user to tweak the voltage and therefore the oc with more precision.
This fact is also reinforced by the much higher amount of people reporting 1 GHZ core clocks compared to the 570Â´s which are rather limited in ther oc."
Non reference 6950s are specially designed to overclock, reference 570s aren't. OMG it's a scientific breakthrough! Non-reference 570s overclock very well, and there have been posts on this forum showing reference
570s at 850Mhz beating stock 580s, something a 6950/70 struggles to do. Non-reference 570s go over 900Mhz on average, past
You say you're not trolling, yet you are incapable of separating your own opinion from what you're calling fact... You've already made your decision, so this thread is pointless, yet you continuously degrade other posters who disagree with you, but you're not trolling... You've been unmovable in your opinion for 15 pages, but you're not trolling... You went to a competing forum and did a thread called "call to arms" to get them to come here, but you're not trolling...
ITT: Troll gets trolled and trolls back. I'd call it poetic justice if it wasn't annoying.
Thank you, sums up this thread quite nicely. Except Boxxy actually makes a logical argument relative to what this thread ended up as.
