AMD Radeon HD 5970 vs. NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 SLI
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
X-bit Labs have tested AMD's high-end Radeon HD 5970 graphics card against two mainstream NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 1GB cards in SLI configuration.
Here's what they had to say:
"The results of the GeForce GTX 460 1GB pair in SLI mode are somewhat disappointing overall. We had expected more from it. Although it is competitive to the mighty Radeon HD 5970 in a number of tests, Nvidia cannot claim to have the upper hand if its hypothetical dual-processor GeForce GTX 490 is based on cut-down GF104 cores with 336 stream processors. Yes, the lower price is an advantage, and purchasing a couple of GeForce GTX 460 1GB cards is going to be a good investment for gamers who want to enjoy maximum performance in their favorite games, but this SLI configuration cannot open new opportunities. Perhaps that may be possible with a dual-GF104 card in which all the ALUs are unlocked in the GPUs."
Two GeForce GTX 460's in SLI currently provide the best Bang for the Buck GPU setup on the market, no doubt about it.
