    Default what actually is the problem here??

    why does GPU of some brands lag behind in term of performance when going against the same card of another brand?? i dont remember where but i saw some benches where GB was beaten by sapphire, asus etc (not by much though)..they are the same card and often GB had higher clock...so what is their problem??
    can anyone explain?? and also try to state which brand you like the most (and why if possible)

    Same GPU with same clocks will have the same results. If there are differences, then its likely that it was tested in a different way.

    And don't forget to account for margin of error. One card scored 60.1 and the other 60.5 doesn't mean that 60.5 card is better.

    The Gigabyte card was clocked higher, than the Sapphire one. Same case for ASUS, hence the higher results.
    As for my personal opinion, I like ASUS for their designs, Gigabyte has improved vastly over their original Windforce designs and overclocking capability is good too. Overall both ASUS and Gigabyte have got stable cards, XFX cards were stable too but those were mostly reference, Sapphire was good too, but their Custom HD6870 wasn't upto the mark IMO, though they still improved alot. If I did have a choice between all of the stated brands, I would pick either ASUS or Gigbabyte, followed by XFX and Sapphire.
    But do note, two of my ASUS cards had issues, probably was my Power Supply's fault, but still I love ASUS.

    if same driver is used at best there can be ~0.5-1 fps(avg) difference. this can be happen for sudden fps fall due to cache miss or branch miss-prediction of cpu. basically cpu is dependent for this. and this difference might not be constant. you may get totally opposite result if you run the same test twice.......
