AMD Radeon vs NVIDIA GeForce: Desktop Graphics Last Stand

Benchmark Reviews: Over the past several years of testing desktop graphics hardware, I've enjoyed a unique perspective of the internal happenings that remain hidden from the public. Much like politics, there is the truth, and then there's what you've been convinced into believing. I've watched their tactics, and witnessed their desperate attempts to sway consumer opinion. As competition for sales within the desktop graphics segment provokes fierce competition, it also raises the stakes for the companies involved.

Graphics Last Stand is a bit dramatic. AMD has always been behind nVidia, price and performance. That really isn't news. AMD (back then ATI) has always been first to market a new product but nVidia has always beat them to the crown. I don't think the 69xx series can outperform the 580 either and judging by reports the 6970 won't even reach 570 level performance.

expect the 6970 to be right between the 580 and 570

Pretty much.. nVidia have hit their stride again. No doubt the 69xx series will have a good price to compete with them but for pure performance nVidia will hold the crown in all markets, from top to bottom.
