    anadtech's benchmark results show this is not 100% true. Few games where 6870 CF beats 5870 or is behind just a little bit. This is due to better multi-gpu scaling for 6xxx series.

    For the price difference between 5870 CF and 6870 CF, the better option is 6870 CF.
  3. Of course the better option is 6870. But i did not find anything on anandtech to say HD5870 CF is slower! Could you please provide a link.
  4. can't find benchmark results. can you plz give us link? thank you for your help

    there's the link, and i forgot to mention i was looking at 1920x1200 resolution.
    You will see the difference is very marginal, to a point it'd prolly won't make any notificable difference. But the 6870CF would be cheaper with MLAA, if needed.

    This is not true. In about majority of the benchmarks Ive seen the 6870CF out perform 5870CF.
