Introduction

Samples from Diamond have been a bit few and far between, but we're glad to welcome them back with open arms. It wasn't hard to get my attention, though, as they waved a pre-overclocked HD 6970 in front of my face via email.

 

Diamond has managed to attack this model fast; faster than anyone else and we wonder if that meant a 10MHz increase on the core and a 50MHz QDR memory bump. Well, I'm going to give you a bit of a spoiler here and let you know they've done more than that to the clocks.

 

Before we find out just how high they've bumped the new top dawg from AMD, we'll first check out the limited package we've got on our hands before taking a closer look at the card and of course the clocks the card carries.

 

Once that's done it's time to get into the good stuff and see just what kind of performance increase Diamond are able to give us over a reference clocked card.

 

The Package

Diamond went to the effort to send us the card nice and early, so the package was a little bare. Fortunately we've got a shot of the retail package to show you. As for what's inside, we should have a manual, Driver CD and single Crossfire cable.
