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.


The main thing we're going to be looking at today is the performance of the HIS HD 6970 2GB when overclocked ourselves compared to just a reference clocked HD 6970. We've also got the HD 6950 at reference speeds along with the GIGABYTE one we overclocked with the help of Afterburner to over 950MHz.


Along with those cards, we've also got some HD 6800s in single form and in Crossfire along with the GTX 480, GTX 570 and GTX 580 from NVIDIA.


Let's get started!

3DMark 11 is the latest version of the world's most popular benchmark. Designed to measure your PC's gaming performance 3DMark 11 makes extensive use of all the new features in DirectX 11 including tessellation, compute shaders and multi-threading. Trusted by gamers worldwide to give accurate and unbiased results, 3DMark 11 is the best way to consistently and reliably test DirectX 11 under game-like loads.




Under 3DMark 11 we see a nice performance gain over the reference clocked HD 6970. More importantly, though, when overclocked the HD 6970 out performs the overclocked HD 6950.
