First the 6950 advantages:
Fact 1:The superior VRAM of 2GB grants the 6950 to yield better performance at higher resolutions and with graphical settings such as AA and AF.
Fact 2:The price of the 6950 is at least in my area significantly cheaper.
Fact 3:It has been a proven fact over multiple reviews and tests that the 6950 CF scales a lot better than a 570 SLI setup.
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 570´s which are rather limited in ther oc.
Fact 5:The 6950 can be unlocked to the speeds of its successor which is a very great yet unintended feature:)
Fact 6:The 6950´s reference cooling is more efficient as multiple tests have shown this is of course backed up by the superior power consumption rate which basically means: less Watt=>less Heat:)
Fact 7:It is a long known fact that Nvidia cards always tend to have an advantage over AMD in terms of benchmarking ...nobody exactly knows why but it is true.
So the ongoing attempt to argue with benchmark results should be considered as secondary force of expression.
Fact 8:Most of the comparisons conducted by test labs and other reviewers that engaged the 6950 vs 570 were using outdated drivers which restrained the performance of the 6950 by at least 15 to 20%.
Now I will start with the first one of the GTX 570:
Fact 1:In my oppinion the only partially relevant factors that enable the 570 to compete is the use of physx and CUDA ...although both are not used or at least not used to a certain extent in which they can make any difference they should be mentioned.
Nvidia guys please feel free to add your facts:)
Just to conclude.Edited by Kung Pow - 4/9/11 at 7:39pm
