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.

 

Today we'll be checking out our ASUS HD 6970 Direct CU II against a bunch of other cards including the HD 6950 from MSI and HD 6970 from Sapphire. On the NVIDIA front, we've got the GTX 560 Ti and GTX 570.

 

Our ASUS is using the latest 11.6 driver while the Sapphire is using the 11.4 driver, so it will be interesting to see on a broader scale how the HD 6970s go with the latest driver.

 

Let's get started!
