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're going to be having a look at the GIGABYTE HD 6950 2GB at 970MHz / 5460MHz QDR against a number of cards, but some of the main ones we'll be comparing it against are the HD 6950 at reference clocks and also the HD 6970 at reference clocks.

 

Apart from those two cards, we've also got the HD 6800s by themselves and in Crossfire along with the GTX 570, GTX 580 and GTX 480 in single form.

 

Let's get started!

Big gains straight away that put the card faster than the reference clocked HD 6970.
