Shouldnt they be comparing the 6950 with the GTX 570? I'm not sure.

No. Radeon HD 6970 competes with GTX 570. The Radeon HD 6950 competes with the GTX 560 Ti.

This and some other console ports, also nothing is wrong benchmarking over old demanding games as long as they test performance.

Consequently, when you OC a 6950 to the max. on stock voltage it reaches 6970 levels. These cards are very competitive with each other. Of course, if you fold, then the Radeon gets left behind.
I got the superclocked card which runs at 900mhz. interestingly according to this review my 560ti should out perform the 6950

Well, of course it should be faster. A stock reference card is just 4% slower than it at 1920x1200. A word of advice: over-clock it using MSI Afterburner to 950MHz Core/1900MHz Shaders/1100MHz (4400 effective)Memory. Then it'll be the same speed as a GTX 570.

Wow. Just wow.

Why would he use CCC to overclock a 6950....

Severely limited that cards overclock. Even on stock volts.

The 6950 is such a beaut. 2 of them outperform the fastest cards on the market, while costing significantly less. Heck, you can even grab 3 of them and cost you about the same as the 6990. You can even unlocked these puppies and get the same geometry performance as the 6970.

But yes, where you are not it's the same speed as a GTX 570. Folding it should be the same speed as a GTX 580.
Na not stock voltage, its 1.125 v, i could of max it out at 1.150 v but only gain 5 more mhz so i stopped at 1.125 v.

Correction i meant snow map in crysis warhead not crysis 2 lol my bad

that review was fail.

how do you not overclock beyond ccc limits when talking about oc'ing especially when you talk about afterburner.

and why oh why do you stress test the oc on the amd card in civ 5? the amd cards have problems flexing its muscle in that game. the 6850 and 6970 gets the same framerates, so checking oc performance in that game is not smart.

c'mon man!
