^^ OK, seriously, didn't you even note the guys name? That should have been the first indicator...

Since this has now been debunked by benchmarks, I think its about time for a lock, before this thread degenerates...

The results are now in and the 6970 competes with the 570 on price and performance not the 580. So its a disappointment in total performance but is priced to siut.

There are games that favour either Nvidia or ATI so you either look at the games you play (which will likely change in future so you can't tell) or the over all score. It looks like the best bang for buck at this level is either 2 x 6850s or 2 x 460s as long as you can run crossfire/SLi.

I got news for you, how does 30-40% faster at stock sound?

I cant reveal my source but it's 100% correct and you can quote me on this.


@OP EPIC FAIL :lol:

I'd like to go as far as to say he wasn't the only one making claims of greatness for Cayman.

I can sleep like a baby tonight now, knowing I made the right GPU choice.

lol maybe he was comparing 6990 performance to GTX580? :sarcastic:

for last few month, 90% rumor about AMD card was not true in this forum. but most nvidia rumor was correct. what's wrong with AMD fans

I was thinking he just had it backwards, and the thread should read:
"GTX580 30% faster than the HD6970"

69990 is garbage and dual gpu card doesn't mean anything....

amd will go bankrupt soon enough..

AMD has kept things quite this time around, therefore more guess work was involved. What nvidia was going to do was also pretty obvious. I mean, all Nvidia really had to do was flip a switch and unlock the whole GPU. AMD made for all intents and purposes a new arch, and therefore wasnt exactly obvious what they would do. Its also a pretty dumb point.

AMD wont go bankrupt, in fact, Nvidia has been losing quite a bit since the G80 era. Neither should go bankrupt any time soon. Stop trolling.

The 580 isnt even 30% faster than the 5870, its more like 7-12% faster than the 6970.

Well, since scaling with these cards has been amazing, the 6990 could be around 50-70% faster than the 580.

Did you buy the 580? The 580 is an abysmal value right now, the thing that is turning people off with the 6970 is the 570 being a bit cheaper and very close to it, and the fact it wasnt the "580 Destroyer" as people suggested. If you bought the 570, id say you made the right choice, however ive noticed it cant OC at all. Also, no review used the "Magic" Driver 10.12, which some users have said giving them +10%. If any reviews wait till 10.12 or redo things, the picture could look very different with the 6970 being as fast as the 580 yet $150 cheaper. I dont think people are releasing you are paying 40% more for the 580 and only getting 1/4 of that in performance. This should drive 580 prices way down, when availability comes back up.

sounds like another EPIC FAIL awaiting lol

You guys got to stop this wild predictions nonsense,test benches will just give you a look at what you can expect ,but the bottom line is you need good drivers for this cards to work
and it's obvious that "red" team suck in that department (specially for multiple GPU solution) ,I'm glad i switched to green

Lmao. I agree with you about value, but value doesn't mean much to all. Who cares if dale got better mileage than Joe, if Joe won the race.

BTW, I bought 3 580s.
