ASUS HD 6950 2GB Overclock Edition  - ASUS HD 6950 2GB Overclock Edition
Wed, Mar 02 2011 | 9:02AM | Filed under: Video Cards| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

AMD replaced the very popular HD 5850 and HD 5870 video cards with the HD 6950 and HD 6970 respectively. Based on the Cayman architecture, the HD 6970 is priced to compete with the GTX 570 while the $300 HD 6950 fills the gap that Nvidia has with the GTX 570 ($360) and the GTX 560 Ti ($250). Nvidia has also revamped their line up.The GF100 GTX 480 and GTX 470 that were released in March 2010 have been superseded by the GF110 based GTX 580 and GTX 570, and the very popular GF104 based GTX 460 is being replaced by the GF114 based GTX 560 Ti. Since we all like to find good value, it would be interesting to see how the ASUS HD6950 compares to one of Nvidia's outgoing cards, such as Galaxy's GTX 470 which can be purchased for $199. We will set out to see if that extra $100 on the HD6950 is worth it.
