6970 should be here monday latest.
Also, could someone run heaven unigine benchmark v2.1 with a 6970 at stock speeds, 1080p, extreme tesselation, highest AA,AF setting and highest texture settings please?

Do all games play nice and smooth with this 6970? Does it feel nice and solid?
my 5870 hit a score of 15 with the unigine test. 6970 socred 25 at stock. That's a good upgrade!

It depends on what game and what settings. Crysis @ 980/1575, Very High and 2xAA, 1920x1080 plays a lot smoother than those benches would lead you to believe.

I'm going to try some other games today, maybe with some FRAPS runs.

On the heaven bench you did, was it version 2.1?

Also, what made you choose this card over the gtx 570? I felt that the 5 series felt smoother in game compared to the fermi's 4 series.

I bought it on impulse. The way I figure it, is that I'm putting some stock into AMD's driver team to deliver on this new shader architecture, rather than settle in comfortably to a GTX 5xx, which has already seen a number of driver improvements. Some might call that crazy, but I'm simply working the risk-reward game. If it doesn't work out in the end, it's alright. It's not like it is the last card I will ever buy.

Additionally, no SLI on AMD chipsets. Keeping the multi-card option open.

Same here, dude. I am pretty anxious to see what Bulldozer is like next year too, and I wanted a card that could most definitely be dual-carded on either a future Intel or AMD platform. Right now it feels a little crazy, what with nvidia nerds coming in at every turn to try to give us all buyer's remorse. :\

I have a 6970 coming in tomorrow, I'm sure it will be a great improvement over my 4870, or the 8800gts that I'm currently using!

Damn, I was so close to hitting submit order >.< for a pair of 6950s. My frugality regained control at the last minute. I still need to get a 3rd monitor, stand, and am waiting for the release of the ek waterblocks. But still, crossfired and watercooled 4890 extremes are no slouch... grr. Must resist urges...

Friday: Item on way to delivery depot.
Date due for arrival: Sat 18th Dec.
It better come tuesday otherwise am going to go bloody mental without my rig!

Edit: Have anyone noticed, on all the 6970 reviews, they said Cat 10.12 was used to test, however on the GPU-Z shots, it clearly states Cat 10.11!? I don't understand that. Will this card get faster in the next generation games due next near? Is it a few months ahead of it's time and that's why the 570 beats it do we think? Kind of makes sence. Maybe the current games can't fully take advantage of it's new design?
