good card, but there are better and CHEAPER alternatives.

The Powercolor one has already creeped up to £220ish.

Yep 5870 at £190 is a better buy than this I think. They will need to drop these in price another 15% ish to shift them in any sort of numbers. Hopefully the 570 GTX will drop in price to savage this card and a nice little price war will ensue
#4
I think it's safe to assume some price shifting will occur in the middle tier cards of both camps.

For me these cards are ideal, I've been comparing graphics card benchmarks and prices recently, looking at best value for under 100, under 150 and under 200 and these go beyond that but by so little that it barely matters. They're really popular (overclockers UK sold more of these in 3 hours than they have of the 570GTX since it launched) and they are great cards.
Prices are set to go UP on these because in jan they should go up £10 (6970 going up £20) and then the 2.1% extra VAT so I'm thinking of jumping on it myself.
Performance is around 10% below a 580 GTX (6970 is anyway) from what I'm hearing on the overclockers boards and the staff there who have them and the price is much better than a 580GTX, the 6950 will be around 570GTX perfromance for cheaper. Only problem I can see with the cards at all is that you might be able to find a cheap 480 or 570GTX eventually but in the end these cards are great value for money.

They are decent value for money, I just can't hide my disappointment, had high hopes for these after the frankly excellent 5000 series and these are mediocre in comparison. Havn't wrestled the crown from Nvidia and performance gains over last gen are minimal.

the 6950 is roughly 3-7% faster than the 5870 but you can get the latter for nearly £30-40 less. I'd rather save the money myself and forego the extra couple of FPS...

Just my honest opinion. as I say if they can drop the 6950 to sub £200 and the 6970 to £250ish they'd be serious contenders on my to buy list

Yes the numbers dont look too impressive at the moment, but I predict that future drivers will bring out the best in these cards, you have to remember it is a new architecture!


I have bought a VTX3D 6950 from CCL, a company I like with free delivery plus for a price of £216 inl delivery for almost 6970 performance (only a few fps in it) when the 6970 is going for over £300 in most places! some places are selling 6970 for £350!

Also I would expire this deal because I tried to order a 6950 and 6970 card 5 times and every time my order was IMMEDIATLY cancelled, even though it is on PRE-ORDER?? very strange, i dont trust them so I went will CCL
#9
I've edited the title as the XFX cards actually came into stock today (rather than being a preorder for tomorrow).

dom99 - you tried to order both cards? Not sure what you are doing or why it is getting cancelled - although if you ordered one as a preorder before they arrived you would have had an email saying it was out of stock but later saying to ignore the email if it was a preorder.

To confirm, these are in stock now, I have ordered one and it has gone through fine. AFAIK you are the only person reporting any problems!

Cheaper at Scan (Today Only page) for those with free delivery.

That's helpful! Please share the wisdom if you have it.

Apparently these can be unlocked to 6970 speeds with a simple hack:

Dont have one so cant test but very nice if true.
