Xfx 6950 Dual Fan?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Anyone know how quiet this card is and just how good or bad is it?

I can get one very cheap. I could return my 6870 and go with this if its worth it. I mainly want a card that is very quiet.

I'll stick with my 6870. In BC2 which is the game I play, the 6950 gets about 5 fps more than the 6870. And my 6870 is overclocked so that is probably even less than 5 fps..

On the hw compare website with the same settings I use on BC2 the 6950 gets 50 FPS while the 6870 get 44 so its 6 FPS :-) and that is the standard 6870. I've got the overclocked 6870 so its more like 4 FPS for me :-)
