Radeon 6870 scores 7500 in 3Dmark Vantage

Scores in
AMD has loosened the leash on pre-briefed press and partners and told them that they can talk about the HD 6800 series slots, ports and what the card looks like.

We will share the 3Dmark Vantage score of the Radeon HD 6870 and the magical number is 7500 at extreme quality, give or take a few points. This is the score on a 3.2GHz clocked Core i7 965 XE. We have also learned that with high quality textures the card scores close to 7400, while with adaptive quality settings you score a bit higher than 7500.

The same card on high scores 11000 while at performance settings you can get 16500. With a six-core CPU you can probably score a few more points but we doubt that people with six core Intel CPUs will go for mainstream ATI card. We can see some AMD six core adopters doing that and many, who can afford would like two of these cards.

Radeon HD 5870 scores 9000 at extreme settings while HD 5850 scores 7200, and Nvidia’s non overclocked Geforce GTX 460 provides some 7000. Vantage is just one of the numbers worth taking into consideration, but in games Radeon HD 6870 scores close or better to Radeon HD 5850 and loses from Radeon HD 5870.

@Tr0y:

Your GTX 460 wouldn't beat an overclocked 5870 though, would it?

Problem with ATI cards: You can't overclock them properly. So my GTX 460 will still win :)

My 5850 overclocks 20% or more with no problems whatsoever. And that's without tweaking the voltages.

Troll.

There was this idiot ATI fanboy, fudzillololol. I think fudzilla banned him. Now, It's your turn.
Man, I hate fanboys, nvidia or ati, doesn't matter.

@spede

That's not a good idea. We need at least two companies in any given area to keep prices down.
There are trolls and idiot fanboys for all brands. We just have to remember not to feed them.

Another hateful and unprofessional slang from Fuad. :-?

Did you know that at higher resolutions, Thubans perform alot better than any of intel's hex-cores?
