Rumor: Radeon HD 6870 to be 20 percent faster than GeForce GTX 460

Posted on Monday, October 11 2010 @ 20:38:18 CEST by


FUD Zilla claims AMD's upcoming Radeon HD 6870 card will be some 20+ percent faster than NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 460 1GB.
This also implies that this card should be priced slightly higher than a Geforce GTX 460 1GB, so we expect that Radeon HD 6870 should cost around €250 / $250 USD if not a few bucks cheaper.

We are hearing that the performance gain on average with the new Barts XT part is around 20 to 25 percent but on the same time, we hear that Radeon HD 6870 won't be that much faster than the current 5870.

Doesn't the 5870 already beat the 470 and occasionally beat the 480? How is the fact that it's successor the 6870 beats the 460 any kind of news? It SHOULD beat the 460 unless it was broken or something.

    a 6870 should compete directly with a GTX 480 in any case...its strange that they're trumpeting that 20% gain on a GTX 460...but I think its because they can manufacture the card cheap so the price point will target the GTX 460's price point...which means, you get slightly better performance than a 5870 for the price of the GTX 460...so not only will it spank the GTX 460, it will trade blows with the GTX 480 but cost 20% less (roughly)...which makes it appealing to enthusiasts...but hopefully nVidia will surprise us with a mid-life Fermi refresh and we could see a GTX 485 with all 512 cores enabled competing head to head with the 6870 at the same price point....sounds unrealistic but lets hope...

The Radeon HD 6870 is based on the Barts GPU, this is not a high-end chip. The real successor to the Radeon HD 5870 will be the Radeon HD 6970.
