AMD Radeon HD 7990 6GB and HD 7970 GHz Edition Video Cards in CrossFireX - Sound Test

AMD Radeon HD 7990 6GB and HD 7970 GHz Edition Video Cards in CrossFireX

We throw a Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition in with the new HD 7990 6GB dual-GPU video card and look at CrossFireX gaming performance. (NYSE:AMD)

Sound Test

 

 

Pulling out the TES 1350A Sound Level Meter we find ourselves quickly yelling into the top of it to see how loud we can be.

 

After five minutes of that we get a bit more serious and place the device two CM away from the fan on the card to find the maximum noise level of the card when idle (2D mode) and in load (3D mode).

Noise levels aren't too bad at both idle and load.

 

While they're elevated, again when we consider the performance that's on offer from the setup, it's really not a number to be worried about.
