HIS HD6970 Turbo Edition Review

Rating: 8.0.

AMD’s new HD6970 range has impressed KitGuru, delivering stunning gaming performance at a very respectable price point. While nVidia certainly have the performance advantage right now with their GTX580, we really do love to game across three screens without having to purchase another graphics card.

Today we are looking at the new HIS HD6970 Turbo Edition, which offers enhanced clock speeds, for those who want a little extra performance. We will put it through its paces across multiple screens to see if it is the right choice for your next upgrade.
