Radeon HD 6950 successfully opposes GeForce GTX 570, while the flagship solution, HD 6970, wins in three test modes out of four. Although the overall performance difference between these three is not that dramatic.
Sid Meier’s Civilization V
The results obtained in this game stand out among others, but they are particularly remarkable due to the fact that in 2560x1600 resolution GeForce GTX 570 is defeated by both new products from AMD, while in less resource-demanding 1920x1080 resolution we don’t see anything like that. Could Nvidia graphics cards really lack video memory in the highest resolution?
GeForce GTX 570 competes against Radeon HD 6950 in the new F1 2010 game, while Radeon HD 6970 is slightly ahead of both of them in all modes except for the one with lowest image quality. Overclocking helps Radeon HD 6950 almost completely eliminate the performance difference between them. The higher is the video memory utilization and the need for large amounts of it, the farther behind falls Radeon HD 6870. For example, the advantage of Radeon HD 6970 over HD 6870 hits the impressive 64% in 2560x1600 with 8x antialiasing enabled.

I believe there is nothing to comment on here: Nvidia is an indisputable leader in this test.
In conclusion I would like to offer you a complete results table. So, now we can continue to the summary diagrams.
