Updated Nvidia GPU comparison?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Is there one? I know now they have the 560,570 ect. but i don't know how the compare performance wise or price wise. Is there an updated comparison?


My gpu may be dying and currently the 560/570 are in my price range.

The 560 is about the same power as a 470, and the 570 is roughly the same as a 480.

If you get either, then it may well be worth looking at changing coolers, as quite a few people have experienced failures with the power circuits on the 570.

Edit: The 560 looses out to the 470 if you want to run high levels of AA at high resolutions because it has a bit less memory (1GB vs 1.2GB for the 470)

that sucks about the changing coolers. I've had enough driver issues with my 5970, is there a gpu out there with performance that has as flawless a design as possible(I'm open to ati recomendations, but considering the driver issues I would prefer nvidia).

A single card is usualy the most "driver issues" free as you can.
Either a 580 or a 6970.
The 580 is a bit stronger, quieter and produce less heat, but it cost more.

Also the 5970 is a bit stronger sometimes, but not by much and you will get less driver issues.

In your price range, the HD6950 and HD6970 are great options like Defoler mentioned. The AMD driver issues really had a strong impact on pre-6000 series cards, especially when used in Crossfire and/or Eyefinity - they never really had major problems with single cards. Nowadays, with the improved Crossfire scaling and continual improvement with the CAP's, all the issues appear to be a thing of the past.

For what it's worth, I actually moved from an HD5970 to a single GTX 570 and considered it an "upgrade" of sorts due to games just working straight from the start, without any need to keep switching back and forth between different drivers. Keep in mind, the performance of a single GTX 570 still does not compare to an HD5970 so be prepared for a decrease in performance, especially in the heavy hitting games like Crysis and Metro 2033.

Honestly, if you are playing at 1080p or lower resolution, then you would be well suited with a 6000 series AMD card or a GTX 560 (580 if you can really afford it). With a lot of the 570's dying randomly, it's hard to recommend these cards. My SLI 570's started artifacting one night, with only an 800/1600 core/shader overclock at 1.0V, and NEVER abused or benched after being stable for over 3 months. But whatever you choose, I'm sure you will be very happy moving away from your current card.
