Smooth and fluid through the most graphically-intensive of sections, playing the game for a few minutes highlighted that there's significant power on tap, though just how much is yet to be revealed through cold, hard numbers.
But if I were a betting man, I'd say the GPUs' frequencies are lower than the Radeon HD 6970 - OK, I cheated and took a peek in the Catalyst Control Centre when Sapphire wasn't looking - so it may not quite be as fast as two HD 6970 GPUs in CrossFireX. What's more, should the CCC information prove to be correct, there may well be both 2GB and 4GB versions of the range-topping card.
I had a feeling it would be clocked lower - So long as these can still hit similar clocks its all good, they will probably be binned like the 5970 though.
