Too much heat, too much noise, costed WAY too much at release($400 vs $150), and with modern optimizations from Nvidia, the 750 Ti ties or beats it in most popular games. C'mon, it's not exactly fast, about 70% the performance of a GTX 580. 750 Ti is quieter, cooler, cheaper, easier to install on low-end systems because it's smaller, lighter, and can take it's power through the PCIe slot instead of needing 2 power connectors from the PSU. 6970 is nice for... Crossfire? If you have $800 to drop on a low-end gaming setup?
Yea, its ridiculous really. Though I would hope that if they are really comparing cards and deciding what to purchase/keep using as a consumer that they would take a look at more then just the end results that declares the supposed winner. Unfortunately there a quite a few will use these posted "results" of which card won as to what gpu they should buy or whether they should "upgrade" or not. They will claim no bias on way or the other, but there shouldn't be a surprise when someone claims that gpuboss is bias. Comparison tests like these are definitely the reason for such claims, I mean really the winner of a GPU comparison wins based on its "noise and power"?. It is already misleading imo with it being called "noise and power" instead of "noise and power consumption". Making it seem as if the 750ti was declared a winner here on gpuboss because its not only quieter but is a more powerful card then the HD 6970 which it is not. Noise and power use are not irrelevant, but they really have no bearing on how the gpu will perform. However when said card (750ti) does not really win and much if any of the relevant performance tests they still somehow put it as the better card. It gets beaten in all but one of the benchmarks shown, and shows quite a few reasons (all related to performance) to consider the hd 6970 over the 750ti you have to wonder if there is really no bias at all as to why the 750ti won based on its "nose and power", when they themselves list so many reasons (ones that tend to be important to gpu shopping) to choose the hd 6970.
why are these discussions so biased in favor of Nvidia? The GTX 750 ti only out scores in two areas that are irrelevant to performance and it is better? Hands down the HD 6970 blows the GTX 750 ti out of the water without even breaking a sweat! I have had both cards in the same system and have used both cards in a few others and every time the Radeon card kills the Nvidia one.
