My System Specs


In terms of the comparison to a GTX 570 the 6970 DirectCU 2 matches or exceeds the NVIDIA based model in most of our tests and of course has the ability to take advantage of 3 screen gaming. AMD also offer stereoscopic 3D which is best suited to movies and photos but lack the ability to enable PhysX in game.
What???? Did they read the results of the review they'd written???? The reviewed card (prior to OC) beat the reference model 570 in one gaming test (Civ).

If the two cards were around the same price, or if somebody was looking for eyefinity, it would be well worth looking at, but a quick check of pricing leads me to believe this card will come in at least $50 more than a 570 (and that's being quite generous).
