Review the Radeon HD 6950

Im looking to get this GPU but how does it compare to the 6870? Also would one of the 6950s be able to run 3 monitors and still keep up? or would dual 6870 be better for the Eyefinity? Thanks!

  1. i've got 3 x 24" screens in ifinity.
    it seems to keep up okay.
    i was playing assains creed2, it does'nt lag.
    when in ifinity it creates a new resolution.

    I did use two 6770's in crossfire, but 1 x 6950 performed better.

    maybe 2 x 6870's will do better than my earlier test.

    a mate of mine uses 2 x 6850's. he said it works like a boss :)

    hope this helps. cheers, Rolly

    side note, read up on flex version of cards, vs display port adapters etc. cheers =)
  2. How would it run most games on a single monitor?
  3. eyefinity is a setting. it's based on profiles.

    i turn mine on and off.

    if it's off, games run on the 'main' screen. for my pc, the middle screen.
    it's handy.... i run monitoring tools on the other screens so i can see temp, processing power, memory in use etc

    & BigMack70 is right, i think some games you'll need to turn the settings down if using eyefinity, most games seem fine on one screen thou (ie. not laggy on high settings).

    See the link above. In the time it took you to post this and wait for a response, you could have found out for yourself. ;)


    I was just in a rush when I posted this, did not have time to actually look up, but after having a chance to look at that link, it sounds much better than i thought, i did not think it was better than the 560ti either.

    Also, That is a pretty cool feature about the Eyefinity where you can just turn it on or off, i though you would have had to go into the setting and reconfigure it every time. Im not sure if i am every going to have triple monitors, but i want to have the ability to if down the road i decide i want to.
