Possible AMD 6970 benchmarks leak out.


I’m not trying to say the fresh off the line AMD 6850 and 6870 are “poor”. But the honest to goodness truth is that those are mere “mid-range” cards. The real shiny jewel of glory is the 6970. This is the card that is destined to replace the current top of the line, single-GPU 5870.

On that note, a Chinese site by the name of zol.com claims to have some early 6970 hardware in-house, with preliminary benchmarks already completed.

  • 3D Mark: 23,499 in Performance mode
  • Uningine Heaven: 36.6fps @ 1,920 x 1,200 w/ 4x anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering.

Not too shabby. For comparison’s sake, the outgoing 5870 scored 19,337 and 17.3 fps respectively, while Nvidia’s hulking king, the GTX 480 managed 21,106 and 29.5fps. Clearly, AMD has gotten something right.

Just remember, these aren’t official nor even confirmed as “real” 6970 benchmarks. But we can only hope…
