DirectX 11 Benchmarks

In DirectX 11, the performance of the R6950 is extremely comparable to the Nvidia GTX 570, whereas it trails behind its elder sibling by roughly 11%.

DirectX 10 & 9 Benchmarks

DirectX 10 benchmarks are a different story however, where the HD 6970 still leaves the HD 6950 by a 7% margin, the GTX 570 steamrolls ahead with a 30% lead. DirectX 9 performance with StarCraft II is negligible.
