HIS HD6970 CrossFireX Graphics Card Review

The tests were performed in a controlled air conditioned room with temperatures maintained at a constant 25c – a comfortable environment for the majority of people reading this.

Idle temperatures were measured after sitting at the desktop for 30 minutes. Load measurements were acquired by playing Crysis Warhead for 30 minutes and measuring the peak temperature. We also have included Furmark results, recording maximum temperatures throughout a 30 minute stress test. All fan settings were left on automatic.

Under gaming load, the card peaks around the 75c mark, rising to 83c under Furmark load. The 5th generation Vapor Chamber is actually pretty good considering the performance levels. We look forward to seeing the new 3rd party coolers however in a couple of weeks time.
