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.
