Radeon HD 6970 to be 10-20 percent faster than a GeForce GTX 480?

Posted on Wednesday, December 08 2010 @ 16:45:01 CET by


FUD Zilla claims AMD has told journalists that the Radeon HD 6970 is about 10-20 percent faster than the GeForce GTX 480:
AMD's own benchmarketing data claims that Cayman XT is slightly below 20 percent faster than a GTX 480 in 3Dmark Vantage. When we compare our own GTX 480 results and add 20 percent on top of that it turns that Cayman XT loses to both GTX 570 and especially GTX 580.

It looks like AMD has big gains versus GTX 480 in all OpenGL games including ET Quake Wars, Wolfenstein MP and Chronicles of Riddick, quite old games if you ask us. It is around 20 percent faster than the GTX 480 in these games.

Ugh, Fudzilla. You guys need to realize that they are not a credible source whatsoever. Since I'm anonymous and actually have this card to test I can tell you that Fuad is quite wrong. You can post a news post on that rumor.

Seems to make it about as fast as a GTX 570...
