  1. If the 6670 doesn't need an external power connector, the 6570 shouldn't.

    Easy choice though, get the 6570.

    Thank you for quick reply :)
    does the 6570 blow away the HD5670 or is only marginally better?
    I was set on the 5670 but then I saw the 6570
    I do like the Gddr5 of the 5670 and higher clock speeds
    I used GPU review to do a side by side match up and
    it was close

    If anybody has link to game benches between the two that would be great
  3. Best answer
    I can only find benchmarks for the 5670, but not for the 6570. However, based on the 6670's results, I can safely say that the 6570 would probably be about 10% faster.
  4. Thank you very much
    It is just I have been taught to go with the better memory
    which is the GDDR5 in the HD5670
    I will have to really do my own research and read reviews on the 6570
    it is definitley one to consider
    I like the 6570 since it is newer tech with some newer features
    Thanks for your help borisof007 :)
