Hey all. I have recently upgrade my vid card from a GTX 295 to a HD 5970 and was wondering if anyone in the Beta has this card...how is it performing?? I have an i7 920 OC 3.6 with 6 gigs of ram and was wondering the performace of someone with a similar setup. I cannot find anything online to point me in the direction I am looking for. Please help.

RU serious?

"I just bought the most expensive video card on the market, can I has max FPS?"

Really?

Why even bother asking? Just triple crossfire and get it over with.

imo that card is a waste of money for ffxiv, but I suppose you'll b future proofed for a while.

i7 980x + 5970 scored a 6100 on the benchmark if that's what you're asking.

Not sure why you couldn't find any information. All I did was type "5970 ffxiv benchmark" in to google.

[5500–7999] Very High Performance
Easily capable of running the game. Should perform exceptionally well, even at higher resolutions.

#6devolve81, Posted: Aug 08 2010 at 8:22 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) dont know where you found that a single 5970 is pulling in scores like 6k. The most I have seen is 4k. Maybe 6k + with CF enabled but that trick doesnt not work anymore.... BTW thanks for all the help. Seriously I was asking a simply questions and the trolls come out to play.

I scored 4700+ on high with a 5870.
If you're scoring lower with a 5970 then I think you have problems elsewhere.

I think you might have wasted your money. I also have a 295, but I posted some screen shots of the benchmark with that card on the official benchmark thread with scores that reached up to 5400 on hi-res. Of course, this is when I enabled the dual-gpu by renaming the .exe to crysis, but I'm assuming that the retail version will have dual-gpu enabled so the score I received should be an accurate measurement. In the end though, it's up to you whether you think that the 600-700 point increase was worth spending another 500 or so dollars to buy the 5970.

How on earth does the 460 get a better score than the 465 every time (and how does it score so mediocrely when it's allegedly the 6th best card on the market)? o_o I clearly don't get how this works.

Higher number does not mean better in performance.

Think of it as this way.

The 460 is kinda like a overhaul.

The 465s are actually 480/470s that can't make the cut. <-- The best way I can put it (-_-lll someone might give a better explanation.

How not to get help on a forum with technical issues:

Step 1) Appear clueless about expensive computer parts and demonstrate an inability to use Google.

Translation: "I have an overclocked processor and the most expensive card money can buy, and I want someone to break the NDA to answer a question that I haven't looked hard enough to find.

Step 2) Once you get an answer, dispute the validity of the answer and become abrasive and insulting.

Oh and I just checked your "6 K score" you found.....why would I ever bench on low settings....try searching for 1080p settings then come back with another brilliant comment


Translation: "I don't know what the answer is because I can't be bothered to look, but with absolutely no statistics or proof of my own, I'm going to blindly call you wrong. Also, while I expect the posters on these forums to be my personal Google because I can't be bothered to look hard enough myself, I disapprove of the way you have searched for info. Not only do I expect you do my research for me, I also expect you to provide a higher caliber of answer, you ****** person, you."

Response: Why would anyone want to help you if you're going to be rude and ignorant? Try searching Google yourself. Also, try being a little less of a **** to people you're trying to get assistance from, then come back with something a little less douchey.

The 465 is the mid end, the 470 is better and the 480 is better than that.

The 460 came out later, as a revision to the 465. Despite the name, the 460 is better than the 465.

So I'm not the only one who thinks the OP is a prick? Awesome, but seriously if you're asking for help on a board and something tries to help you, even if the information isn't what your looking for, be courteous. As Mik pointed out you could have easily found what you were looking for with the use of a search engine.

Edit: Lack of sleep and nicotine makes my grammar go the way of the dodo...

I don't think I was trying to sound brilliant at all. You asked for information on ffxiv + 5970 and I gave you some, adding that I was surprised that you're having difficulty with finding such info. With google,tom's hardware, and other search engines it's not difficult to find what you're looking for. If you had half the brains that you do money, you'd already know the answer to your question as*h*le.

*oh btw look what I did
Intel Core i7 920 D0 @ 4.00 Ghz
Kingston KHX1600C9D3K3 4GB X 1 DDR3 @ 1600 Mhz Timing 9-9-9-24 Single Channel
ATI Radeon XFX HD 5970 Black Edition 1 GPU Working @ Core 1000 Mhz Memory 1300 Mhz
Edit: I forgot to say it's High Settings (1080p) Score: 7252

I was actually thinking of making a post while similar, a bit shorter and direct than yours Mik when he posted that asinine response, but got distracted for a moment and went back to watching the new NCIX.com vids on my youtube subscription. Also nothing wrong with starting a trend, unless you want us to adopt shaved heads or something.

But if you shave your head, you get a free snuggie and some kool-aid!

This is EXACTLY why nvidia Product designations give me a headache, and consequently why I stick to ATi.

Maybe because the benchmark result tiers are classified @ 720 settings, *NOT* 1080.
