GTX 560Ti Vs Radeon HD 8670

hey guys just a quick question wondering if the GTX 560 is way better than the HD 8670 comparing its price and performance.

Im also wondering where i could find a bench mark test where i could compare these to cards to how much FPS they get in most for all games.

My other question is if the GTX 560 is going to last longer and be able to perform most new games and upcoming games on max setting at a decent FPS?

My last question is which on is just overall better


Well i guess that wasn't quick and it was more than one question
thanks anyway guys and girls.

  1. You will almost never find a higher priced card that wins on price and performance. It's just the nature of the game.

    The 560 is faster, but it's not fast enough to warrant the extra cash.

    can you explain to me what exactly what you mean.

    because of what i have seen and heard the GTX 560 is suppose to be way better than the HD 6870.

    If not what card would you recommend that will be at the top of the line for awhile and be able to perform at around the 200 dollar price tag
  3. The 560 is faster than the 6870 but it costs more. Its closest competitor on price would be the 6950 and the 6950 is faster but costs a little more.

    $215 after rebate.

    I can't find a 560 for cheaper than that, so its an easy choice.
  4. Most GTX 560's are sold with factory overclocks of 900 mhz or more. The Zotac GTX 560 AMP! card is factory clocked at 950 mhz:

  5. The factory OC'd 560Ti's kick the living *** out of everything up to the level of the GTX 570. In particular the ASUS ENGTX560Ti DirectCU II or the Gigabyte SuperOverclock GTX 560Ti. ASUS 560>Gigabyte 560. The ASUS is $250 (Gigabyte is $260), and for that price/performance, it simply can't be beat.
  6. Dear god you are almost at $300 now - he said around the $200 mark.

    6950 for $215, which can be unlocked to a 6970 or one of those zero-headroom max overclocked 560's? Easily the 6950, its the best card money can buy by far.

    Chances are the OP will be happy spending a lot less though, something like the 6870 for $170.
  7. Also, yeah the 560 gets owned at proper gaming resolutions



    Beware "all resolution" results - nvidia cards score much higher at very low resolutions but get owned by ATI at higher resolutions - the resolutions anybody buying these cards would be using.

    well im running at 1440 x 900 but i might be upgrading some time so i don't

    Can you please tell me where you are getting all the benchmark images.


    and one last question for 200-240 dollars whats the best performance and most long lasting gaming card out there.
  9. at your resolution a 6850 would be the best choice. A gtx 460 would be good too if you can get one cheaper.

    The benchmarks shown here are from techpowerup.com

    ALL the cards mentioned by everybody here are really great cards and you won't be disappointed. Its just trying to save you money by finding the best card for your needs.

    Clocked at 900 mhz (as opposed to the reference models at 822 mhz), just a little bit higher than the MSI GTX 560 Twin Frozr:



    Overclocks like crazy:
