Which is better ATI or Nvidia?
I'm talking about the best performance for the money, you could have a quad sli or 4-way CF and have performance beyond measuring
But for most people price is a problem.
Basically, for mid-high range cards like the GTX 460 and GTS 450 vs ATI 5770 and ATI 5750 which offers better value?
Also, does an AMD processor paired with ATI card yield better performance?
Does an intel i7 paired with and ATI card have disadvantages?
ATI cards use less power, and generate less heat, do they have hindered performance?
Does ATI do a good job with releasing drivers? I heard Nvidia does better
GTX 460 > HD 5770 > GTS 450 > HD 5750.
For resolutions like 1680x1050 a 5770 suffices,whereas for higher resolutions,GTX 460 is worth the extra cash.
And both AMD/Intel CPUs will work fine with an ATI VGA,the performance depends on the models(not the brands).
As for power consumption,well most HD 5xxx series have significantly lower power consumption than GTX 4xx series,however the new GTX 460 has a good and low(compared to GTX 470/480) power consumption.
Both AMD and Nvidia make good/bad drivers, so there isn't a winner in terms of drivers.
does anyone have the windows experience index (WEI) for the 4 cards I listed? Just on the GPU subscore (i know theres 2) not on CPU or RAM or anything
I know this depends on some of the other components
Just trying to get an overall picture
you have the chart already so why are you asking the question? it seems you have the ability to dig out information....
also how is the topic not closed, i can see a flame war coming a mile away
That chart is to help. I'm also asking questions about the efficiency, compatibilty, etc. I can search that online but of course the fanboys are running those sites. I'm just trying to get opinions from different people
Plus that chart gave names/models.....not performance
