PowerColor HD6970 Devil 13 2GB Review

Rating: 8.0.

AMD’s HD6970 was warmly received when it was launched thanks to the excellent performance and reasonable pricing. The series is due to be replaced soon and Powercolor have decided to push the envelope by releasing one of the fastest clocked HD6970’s ever released in a collectable box with a plethora of extras. They are calling it the ‘Devil 13’.

    I wish more companies did collectors editions, they are much more interesting to read. I agree however on the screwdriver set. its fab, but i have all the tools in a drawer already.

    seriously, stop reviewing powercolor hardware, they are basically impossible to buy here. I know from the oCUk forums that they stopped doing them cause of warranty issues, they wouldnt honour uk people.

    I think its a thing of beauty, people will pay for it. well if they can find it, I couldnt. anywhere.

    Its a great idea, just massively overpriced for what you get. My biggest problem with Powercolor is that I read a huge thread on OCUK last year when they stopped stocking them saying that they weren’t authorising RMAs or something.
