Xfx Radeon HD 6970 HD-697A-CNFC Video Card with Eyefinity

Posted

Pros: Speed, Scaling,Double Life Time Warrantys

Cons: Hair Dryer Fan, Hard to Find, Can be expensive, No CUDA for folding (Green Team only)

After owning for a few months this card is still running strong for me. Ran 950/1450 stock volts, on the stock cooler with no issues. It can get loud but that was mostly for me hatting seeing 70C+. Compared to the previous 5xxx cards, this fan runs at a slightly quieter pitch.

Scaling of 2 or more cards is nearly perfect.

2GB of VRAM makes everything including BF3 playable.

Ability to run up to 6 monitors off one card using the DP splitters. Green team requires 2 cards for 3 monitors.

On Air the card would get up to 71C when benching at 950/1450 stock volts and cooler, 100% fan (jet engine at well over 8k RPM)

Under Water this card is running 1020/1500 @ 1.2v. Max temps are around 42C now.

Overall, well worth the price to be paid. The ability to not have to worry about VRAM in games such as BF3 alone makes a 6970 over a GTX 570.
