In the GPU comparison charts (eg http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/2011-gaming-graphics...) why isn't the 5970 included there?

I have one and I'd like to know how it ranks compared to the newest crop of cards, so I can decided if/when to upgrade.

The 5970 is an old card and you can see the age of it in the benchmarks.I think a pair of 6870's can outperform it.

The charts only show current gen because there is already a lot of cards on it. Another reason is the new cards are tested on a different rig and cpu might affect benchmarks. The 5970 is better than the 6970, certainly not showing its age. Saying that a 6970 is beat by 6870x2 so that's kind of a moot point.

You can google benchmarks or your card vs other's. This site also has a more user friendly interface although I don't trust their benchmarks as much as Tom's. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/GPU11/188

Look in the 2010 charts instead of the 2011 ones like you were.

They took it off a while back because the microstuttering issue was so bad in some games that they didn't feel the FPS results were indicitive of the cards real performance, at least thats what I remember reading.

5970 should be about equal to a pair of 560's in SLI....
