pls pay attention i m talking abt 6670 DDR3 vs 5670 GDDR5


It is you who needs to pay attention.

If you actually read the article de5_roy posted for you, instead of just posting a smug reply, then you would see the benchmarks for 6670 vs 5670.

cant u see the difference : 6670 is DDR3 while 5670 is DDR5.

i know DDR5 is better than DDR3.

bt in this case which of two is better?

Plz also note: 6670 DDR3 is 10$ cheaper than 5670 DDR5.

Plz suggest me which one to purchase?

i've been searching for a review for 6670 with ddr3, i could only find a legitreviews article of a cyberpower pc where gpu-z says that the 6670 in that pc has gddr3. it didn't have crysis benchmarks. i did notice in the gpu z screenshot that both ddr3 (gddr according to the gpu z screenshot) and the gddr5 version has same gtex/s, same pixel fillrate but different memory bandwidth - 25~ gb/s for (g)ddr3 version vs 64 gb/s for gddr5 version. 5670 1 gb gddr5 has the same memory bandwidth but slightly slower gpu compared to 6670. from this info, i'd say that the 5670 with 1 gb gddr5 will perform slightly better overall, between the two you listed.
edit: a 6670 1 gb gddr5 will perform slightly better than the 5670... a 5750 or a 6750 1 gb will perform even better.

The 6670 is better. You should not be choosing a card based on memory type. If you must have DDR5 then go for a 6670 DDR5.

DDR5 over DDR3 does not always translate into an increase in performance. For higher end cards, it makes sense to go with DDR5 since the GPU is actually strong enough to warrant the extra memory performance. Faster memory doesn't mean anything if the GPU isn't capable of processing enough data to actually use the extra memory performance.
