AMD Radeon HD 6670 And 6570: Turkeys Or Turkish Delights?

Benchmark Results: Synthetics

We begin with 3DMark 11:

Note that the GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 is left out of this benchmark because it lacks DirectX 11 support.

The playing field is close between the GDDR5-equipped Radeons, and only the DDR3-laden Radeon HD 5570 lags behind. The GeForce GTS 450 shows a notable lead here, doubly so when you consider that 3DMark 11 tends to favour AMD's VLIW5 architecture.

With no DirectX 11 tessellation support, the GeForce GT 240 is also left out of our second synthetic benchmark. The Radeon HD 6570 GDDR5 keeps up with the 5670 here, and the Radeon HD 6670 has a slight advantage over the other AMD cards. The GeForce GTS 450 takes a commanding lead, which is no surprise considering its original position as a higher-priced graphics card.

    At a time where most monitors are 1920x1080 putting on top any benchmarks below that resolution is pointless.

    So 30 fps at that resolution in Crysis 2 - not too bad but for me these cards are worthless for any gaming at all. They do not deserve even to be benchmarked and AMD isn't that great in general 2D applications as well.

    I think it is time when GPU designers should think of how to improve and support 1920x1080 as a minimum resolutions. And not just GPU designers but also game developers and OS developers.

    Yeah, some notebooks have lower resolutions but these parts are not notebook parts anyway.

    In the age of CRTs such benchmarks made sense but currently using non-native resolutions on a LCD is ... you know what it is!

    Assuming that every panel ever made has a native res of 1080p... you know what it is! :p

    For cheapo 780p+ (1366*768) and 19" panels (1600*900) these cards are very strong budget performers that require sweet f-all juice to run. And even for 1080p HTPC use they're just the ticket for playing older or less demanding games. So please get off the "Y U NO HD7990??!?" high horse...

    Why is the 5770 listed under test setup but isn't listed anywhere else?
