    Yeah don't take any notice of the Catalyst Version in BETA's, just check the Driver Packaging Version, if it says 8.82.2, then you do have these 11.1a's on :)

    No, it doesnt. I have both cards right now and have an RMA to send back my HD 6970. Even with the new drivers from ATI the GTX 570 is still noticeably faster, especially when both cards are overclocked.

    Well, keep in mind I do have both cards right here in my room and have tested them back to back with multiple games using the latest drivers for both cards. I have no reason to be biased as I could keep either one but am going with the GTX 570 simply due to the fact that the card is faster over all, especially in the min FPS department and the drivers for nvidia are in much better shape right now than ATI's.

    I can understand though if you would like more opinions but be sure to get some unbiased opinions from people who have had time with both cards.

    On average the 570 is somewhat faster than the 6970. It depends on the game, some games favor the 6970 and some games favor the 570. My overclocked and unlocked 6950 is very close to an overclocked 570 that a friend has.

    The main difference is physx and faster tessellation engine in the 570.

    But the prices have dropped on the 6970 last 2 weeks which would make it a tempting choice.

    I replaced my overclocked 4890 with my new 6950 that I reflashed and overclocked (920/1450) and it's more than twice as fast. I'm extremely happy with the purchase. In fact, this 6950 is my best GFX upgrade since I got the 8800GT.

    If you have the extra money I'm certain the 570 @ £284 will make you happy. If you want to save money, the 6950 @ £239 is a great choice. The cheapest 6970 is £288 which makes it more expensive than the 570 and I would go for the 570 over the 6970 at that price.

    yeah death samurai im getting 22000 easy, yours should be giving me the shoop-de-whoop lol, if you sold your gear you could get a nice price on an i7 1156 setup, your ram has gone up in value so they will cover a lot of it, I sold 4gb (1gb sticks) reapers for £60 not so long ago ;)

    Yeah looks that way, it looks like its switching just as that starting windows screen is about to go off, so as it switches, you see it scatter for a split second before it disappears. :)

    This is epic driver, with 10.12 i get 6700p in 3DM11, but with this i get 7K.(default):banana:
    The bug with 100% load on desktop is the reason to roll back to 10.11 :(

    Lots of reviews that say the cards are fairly neck and neck, with the 6970 maybe a touch faster on its first set of drivers

    Or, there's a random forum dude with hyperbole.

    Take your pick! :banana:

    Like your little pot shot there, lol. Anyway, the reviews more times than not dont always tell the whole story and its been that way for years now. I often take them with a grain of salt and purchase cards from both companies to compare for myself and then send back the one that was the least impressive and in this case that would be the HD 6970.

    The FPS is much more consistent across the board with the GTX 570, especially in the min fps department, just one of many things that the reviewers often neglect to tell you about.

    According to you posts you have owned every recent card under the sun, a 480, 580 and now a 570; on the ATI side a 5870, 6870 and 6970. Yet you have only ever posted negatively about ATI products and how your replacing them with an Nvidia product magically always fixes them; every time.

    I was anxious, made a restore point, and installed these drivers, then reinstalled nvidia quadro 265.90, physX 514, and 4ff patch. 2x 6950 unlocked + 465 GTX PhysX - 3 GPUS all good.

    Things still effing broken compared to 10.12a RC3 on the same setup:


    RatGPU opencl renderer - does not officially support 6900 series but now actually renders with errors before crashing out. Previously just locked up the entire system on render.
    Maxon Cinebench 11.5 - opengl quality render errors at 87.4% while old database says a 4870 gets 95+?!?! But CFX is working even with the errors.
    GpuCapsViewer - now all 2.1 opengl tests are broken whereas only some broke in the previous version!!! OpenCL tests works with Stream 2.3 installed.
    Doom 3 1.3.1 still cannot detect available resolution for me. Is there a source port out yet?
    Eduke will still crash after playing for a few minutes
    Uniengine Heaven's 1.2 opengl does not work for me. It tries to launch then goes into a browser page with 404? DX9,10,11 works as usual. Previous driver worked but FPS was in low teens maxed out. With or without tesselation, it was low teens on my setup.
    GTA4 and EFLC still cannot detect proper resolution or correct vid mem with CFX on. Have to force -norestrict in commandline.txt

    Working or FIXED:
    AMD CCC2 installer now works for 6900 owners. Previous CCC2 stand alone package installer was non functional. You had to manually install each exe to make it work. Who the heck actually QC'ed that?

    Directcomputebenchmark -- doubled the performance with Stream 2.3 opencl drivers installed vs previous driver!
    Fluidmark still the same but working physX, no conflicts.
    OCCT 3.1 can test the gpu but still cannot test memory... might be app issue

    Working or FIXED, even with forced 16xAF, 8xSSAA, vsync off

    GTA3, VC, SA and now detects proper resolution with CFX! 3 and SA was broken with 10.12a RC3 CFX on and forced into 800x600. All 3 gives me insane FPS now... 3,VC = 150-400 FPS, SA gets down to 80-150 FPS.

    Also, enbseries works in all 3 but enabling SSAO still shows transparent polygons so must be an enb issue.

    GTA 4 and EFLC performance in CFX has improved significantly and a lot LESS stuttering, once you force settings... it is half working now so AMD just need to make sure it detects properly in CFX so it can manage vid mem better and not run out of memory. Single card does detect correct vram and adjust accordingly.

    GTA 4 with enbseries now do not have corrupted textures if enbseries SSAO is on when CCC forces AA. In 10.12a RC3, ccc had to profile and turn off AA / set to application or it will corrupt enb modified gta 4 /eflc.

    WOLFenstein ET (opengl) works! No issues
    Penumbr Overture works
    Land of the Dead (UE2 engine) works
    Borderlands works - but it seems it cannot detect it is a UE3 game so no AA, even when forced in ccc2?
    Half Life 1, 2, CSS, alway worked even with forced settings in ccc.

    More testing later but so far so good AMD. I have some faith in you guys now... lets fix the opengl issues, and stuttering in Heaven's Benchmark in DX9 and I would be a happy camper. 6 days to go!
