AMD Radeon HD 6970 2GB Video Card in Crossfire - Test System Setup and 3DMark 11

We've seen what one new HD 6970 can bring to the table so far thanks to Sapphire. Now we do the next logical step and add a second into the mix.

We would like to thank the following companies for supplying and supporting us with our test system hardware and equipment: Intel, ASRock, Kingston, Mittoni, Noctua and Corsair.

 

We'll be looking at a load of cards today and the main thing you might find yourself looking at is the scaling difference from one card to two. Of course, if that's not enough, we've got NVIDIAs single GPU beast, the GTX 580, along with the HD 6850 and HD 6870 in Crossfire.

 

We've also got a few other single card solutions which ultimately should give you a good idea of just what AMD are offering us here with this setup today.

Straight away we can see the great scaling performance under 3DMark 11. We see some massive gains at both presets and the HD 6970 CF setup has no trouble taking the other setups on.
