GTX 570 vs Radeon 6970 and 6950 vs Radeon 5870 – All Overclocked Review

11. HAWX 213. Conclusion


Gigabyte GTX 570 vs Sapphire 6970 and 6850 vs Radeon 5870 Overclocked Graphics Cards Review

3DMark 11

Futuremark recently released 3DMark 11 so we thought to round of the standard comparisons in this review we would run the cards through a benchmark or two using the application. We set the program to use the Performance profile and these are the results we obtained with the cards overclocked.


In this test the 6970 offers the best performance, the GTX570 is not far behind and no doubt thanks to its improved tessellation performance the 6950 scores noticeably higher than the 5870.
