reviews compare the 1GIG model of 560 against 6870(with 6870 as the winner)...anybody got any idea how the 2gig model might hold up?
Please, no "ATI/NVIDIA rules so buy ATI/NVIDIA" fanboy comments...anything backed with either solid Benches or sensible theories are very much appreciated.
The 6870 1gb is a 5-10% better than 560 (non Ti) 1gb version. But i dont know how much better will be the 2gb version. But its a start, right? I mean it can perform 5-10% better than the 1gb version. But because the bottleneck thing u wownt get a 100% better performance, not at all, just a bit more.
Like 4745 said, the memory wouldn't matter. And like einterlan said, the HD 7870 is a bit faster.
The GTX 560 is not powerful enough to take advantage of 2GB of RAM. At most GTX 560 2GB card will give you 5-7 extra frame per second but the HD 6870 will still be faster So go with the HD 6870.
Here's a review between them in an unknown site http://www.kitguru.net/components/graphic-cards/zardon/...
