2GB only really matters most in Eyefinity resolutions. If the OP was going to CF/SLI with multiple monitors, the larger framebuffer will show its worth.

the 6950 is better when overclocked, the 560's that were reviewed at 1ghz still lost out to 6950 @ 940-ish.

the VRAM makes a difference too when you raise settings....and you always want to play games with the best possible settings. it's a no brainer.


there's honestly way too much spin and attempted rationalization going on here. the 6950 is a better buy.

Yeah, my personal opinion is that the 6950 is a better buy, but I'm biased because I have one.

A very high percentage of ref boards unlock, and it's extremely easy to do, and some 6950s can easily push past 6970 clock speeds.

When it comes to memory speed, the 69xx cards are more complicated than you'd first think, though...between 1250-1350 you eitehr see tiny increases or tiny decreases in performance because of ECC, but once you get past the 1350 mark the sheer bandwidth will take over and you'll get performance leaps.

the thing is, it's not really an opinion that the 6950 is better. goes double for the 2GB reference model.

Where is that review?

At 1920x1200, they pretty much go back and forth depending on the game, in this review. The 560 @ ~1000Mhz and the 6950 at ~900Mhz. Also a 6970 @ ~940Mhz

id to return my gtx560 today it was crashing in games alot so microcenter didnt have the 6950 in stock so i setteled for the 6870 thinking id get less fps wrong the 6870 killed the 560 in just cause 2 benchmark and i mean by 30fps and it also is better for me in metro 2033,and maffia 2,i never used physx in either game,im shocked really maybe its bc i have an amd phenom2 im not sure but i saved 30bucks and im gettin better fps

Well, you obviously had a faulty card or software issues if it was crashing and underperforming like that. A 560 will easily outperform a 6870 in most games.

More than likely your overclock was not stable.

thats what i thought too so i set it to stock and it only crashed in one game,and just cause 2 is the only game were it blows away the 560 every other game maffia2,metro 2033,gta4, crysis etc,i get just a few more fps,the 560 was a evga reference card and it would only crash in certain games than i down clocked it back to referance and it only crashed in metro 2033,i dont think it was a defective card,but at stock it was running at the correct core clock,ive read that the 560 has issues with some amd gigabyte mobos so i think this was the problem,im just really surprised at the 6870 its great and my first amd card so im not a fanboy lol
post #39 of 47
this is making me really curious if anyone here has a 560 and just cause 2 id love to see ur benchmark on darktower at 1024x768 with highest settings and 2x aa and 16x af to compare to my results with my 560 and than with my 6870

ive just read page 3 of this thread and im rite the 6870 beats the 560 in almost all benches,not by much but it does and thats consistant with the differance im seeing too,except for just cause 2 bench mark were the 6870 just kills the 560 on my rig,ive read that just cause 2 favors amd cards so i guess it makes sense

lol. we're getting pretty ******* ridiculous here now.

the 560 is not worse than the 6870. it is better in most apps, period. your card was messed up, now move along.

oh and one more for the road...the 6950 is better than the 560.
