6870's on the list twice. Single and Crossfire.

I fully agree with this as these cards are superb!

They were right about the HD5570. The rest is fairly sketchy :/

Maybe because AMD is clearly superior.
6950 eats 560 for breakfast, and can also be unlocked to destroy 570 and be very competitive with 580 beating it at high resolutions.

A 6950 is clearly inferior to a gtx 580 in all aspects

Strange... My 570 GTX beats my friends 6970 in all games we play and the rest of the systems is pretty much identical.

He even payd more than me.

Guys? Its not about a card's performance, its about its performance/price, stop saying "bad card" because there is no bad cards, its all about how a card is priced according to its performance.
Yes, AMD is better in this aspect, so going for a nVidia is for all other things like physx, cuda, more mature drivers, folding.

You reference one example (the card you own lol) from last gen. Take a look at the article. You've got to do better than that slick.
