Honestly, even since Lost Planet 1 the series has been notorious for NVIDIAs injection of money into that particular game. You can see that by looking at all the other games in the same review. Lost Planet nvidia framerates stand out like a sore thumb.

I guarantee you that in flagship games like BF3 the 6970 will be ahead of the 560 ti by a good margin. I'm not saying the 560 is a bad card, in fact if I could change my setup I'd have 2 560 Ti cards in SLI.... just that it's not in the same class as the 6970 by a long shot.

Were runming in a loop.. I was expecting a 560ti ~ 6950... But then seen lost planet review and was like.. holy crap... It seemed odd, but being a very reputible site got suckered.. So i didnt check other games.
