Alien vs Predator
On to the gloriously lit Alien vs Predator and the HD6950, considering it's £60 cheaper than anything else on test, performs admirably. The HD6970 just splits the GTX570 which is good considering that price-wise it's aimed right at it on price-terms and just above it according to AMDs market positioning table.
Eventually we've reached a point in Crysis where the graphics cards are no longer the limiting factor, but rather it's the game engine itself. Both AMD efforts give almost identical results, along with the GTX580. The GTX570 manages to get ahead mainly due to driver improvements between the time we reviewed the GTX580 and it, but otherwise all is very closely matched.
