KitGuru has reviewed many of the custom, overclocked cards from AMD’s partners in the last month, and today we are taking a look at the much awaited HD6970 Black Edition from XFX.
XFX have earned quite a reputation for creating some of the finest graphics cards for the enthusiast market, and in a similar fashion to Sapphire, we always look forward to testing their products.
