is hwcompare.com legit?

that website says that amd hd 5970 is super powerful. and when i say powerful i mean that it is almost more powerful than a gtx titan.
heres the link to hd 5970 vs titan : http://www.hwcompare.com/13981/geforce-gtx-titan-vs-radeon-hd-5970/

and here it is vs a gtx 690 : http://www.hwcompare.com/12679/geforce-gtx-690-vs-radeon-hd-5970/

  1. Nope.
    Only real benchmark shows the real performance of both cards.
  2. Not accurate at all. That site shouldn't exist. Neither should passmark. Both are nothing but lies.
  3. Best answer
    All HWCompare does is show a theoretical output on a limited set of variables: Power consumption, Memory bandwidth, Texel rate, and Pixel rate. That is far from enough information to tell anyone how that card will perform in the latest games. It's basically a comparison of specs, without any context or any understanding of how that translates to the real world. HWCompare should never be cited as a resource for relative performance in real world situations. Case in point, the 5970 would never be realistically considered a higher performing card than a GTX 690 or Titan.
  4. Yes it is legit in terms of a comparison of specifications.

    However different architecture and software makes a bigger difference these days.

    Comparing hardware with similar architecture and software are comparable in HWCOMPARE. The rest is useless.
