NVIDIA GTX 260 vs ATI HD 5770

i M going to buy a new PC in few days.

But i m not able to decide as on which GRAPHIC CARD to buy.

i Have 2 choices :
1} ATI RADEON HD 5770
2} nVIDIA GTX 260.


Pls. dont give me any other choice as i have decided to buy any one of these cards.

i Dont want a huge gaming rig.
i want it for all round purposes & mainly for 3D ANIMATION & VIDEO ENCODING.
& might play few games as well such as BATMAN ARKHAM ASYLUM, GTA IV, ASSASSINS CREED.

Both cards have their advantages & disadvantages.
ATI 5770 has DX-11 SUPPORT, EYEFINITY, etc BUT IS SLOWER THEN GTX 260 ON GAMES.

WHEREAS

nVIDIA GTX 260 lacks DX-11 SUPPORT but is faster then ATI 5770.

nVIDIA HAS CUDA & PHSYx which is a BOON TO GAMING & ANIMATION.
i Dont think ATI has such technologies with them.

By viewing the following images i have decided that GTX 260 is slower then ATI 5770 :









So PlS. reply

  1. The Benchmark speaks for itself
    Clearly, Radeon 5770 is the way to go:
    DirectX11
    Less Heat
    Extremly less power consumption
    Shader Model 5.0
    Will be good for more than 2 years


    Sometimes 260 > 5770 and othertimes 5770 > 260

    Who cares about the card when you are getting smooth fps upto 1920x1200
    But new technology does matter.


    5770 will be a great choice.
    In future add another one and get the performance close to $400 5870 at just $320

    BUT WHAT ABOUT THE CUDA & PHYSx TECHNOLOGY THAT nVIDIA HAS ????
    Does ATI have such ????
  3. ATI doesnot have that.
    But wait do you even know what those two things are.
    PhysX is only found in some games.
    I have played Batman Arkham Asylum
    with PhysX and without PhysX.
    Trust me you only will notice PhysX when you are playing the game with it.
    Otherwise, you won't feel you are missing something
  4. depend on your usage as well. right now not many games using PhysX. so i don't think it will be a deal breaker. ATI does have something similar to CUDA and they called it STREAM. some software support CUDA only and some other using both. but i think there are more software supporting CUDA right now than ATI STREAM. at least for now
Ask a new question
