HIS HD6970 CrossFireX Graphics Card Review

Rating: 9.0.

HIS are famous for performance products and today, as AMD releases the Radeon HD 6900 series they were quick to release their new range of  products. To see what this second generation graphics processor is really capable of, we tested a pair of the Radeon HD 6970 cards in CrossFireX formation as well as the usual array of stand alone tests.

Is this the perfect card to replace your last generation HD5870? Is it worth your money buying two of them to run in CrossFireX? Today we aim to help you answer these questions.

Zotac GTX 1080 Ti Mini Review – the world’s smallest!

Zotac has launched the world's smallest GTX 1080 Ti - just how good is it?

  • sam

    I think these are good boards, even though a lot of people will be disappointed with the fact the 580 is still leading the single card attack

  • Faith

    @Sam: Not quite. The 5970 is still the fastest card. The GTX580 is definitely the fastest single chip.

    The price is the biggest selling point. I dont think they are the performance killers we expected, but the 280 price for the 6970 means its actually only 30 more than the 5850 was at launch. thats quite a good figure for them to achieve. I think they are doing what they do against intel in the CPU sector. drop pricing as low as poss.
