Radeon HD 6970 slower than GTX 580 in 3Dmark 2011

Slower or similar to GTX 570, tests in
We got some numbers for Radeon HD 6970 in 3Dmark Vantage and the latest 2011 version. We know that this test is not real life based, but it still provides a nice reference.

We have compared the 3Dmark data we acquired from a source with our own that we got on a similar configuration. In 3Dmark 2011 Radeon HD 6970 scores slightly lower than 8000 at entry settings while the GTX 580 scores 8700 in that same test. The runner up, GTX 570, scores slightly above 8000 while the GTX 480 is slightly below 8000.

At performance settings Radeon HD 6970 a.k.a. Cayman XT scores around 5300 while the GTX 580 scores are just tad below 6000 and the GTX 570 loses by an inch with 5250 score. GTX 480 scores almost identical to the GTX 570, its 5250 points are again slightly lower than HD 6970.

In more extreme conditions Radeon HD 6970 scores 1800 while the GTX 580 scores 1950. Radeon HD 6970 again wins against GTX 570 and GTX 480 who scored 1680.

The launch is on Wednesday December 15th 5AM Central European Time or 6PM GMT or Greenwich time.  Chaps in New York or across east coast will be able to see the card launching on November 15th at 00.00 AM while those from California get a slight advantage and can see the card selling already on December 14th 09.00 PM.

Sources have also confirmed that the GTX 580 wins in most of the games. You’ll see some official scores in less than 48 hours from now.
