We have to be honest when we say that the video card market has been pretty stale now for a few months. We've seen few companies innovate over the last few months and with the lack of new chipsets, we're just not seeing much come through. That should all change in the coming months, but it's probably fairly safe to say outside of any rumored cards coming soon, we're not going to see anything really high end 'till next year.
PowerColor has put a really nice card together here, though, and it's been looked after in all areas. Everything from the bundle to the cooling and of course the performance has been looked at and PowerColor has gone out of the way to offer us something that manages to stand out in a market that doesn't have many new stand outs.
For the most part I'm not sure why you wouldn't hit that BIOS button straight away to get the overclocked performance, but if you just wanted to run it at stock, the option is of course there.
Overclocked performance is really strong, though, and you can see in our benchmarks, we manage to move from under 60 FPS on a stock HD 6970 to over it on our overclocked DEVIL 13 card here today.
Outside of the performance, we've got the bundle, and that's a real stand out with some nice extras including the two screw sets. The packaging on a whole is just really nice and presented extremely well and when you pull the card out, you can take it all in.
The card looks great and the cooler is also fantastic; noise levels put it on par with the reference one, but you can see a nice drop in load temperatures when comparing the two.
Like we said, PowerColor has managed to produce a card that stands out from the pack. Considering we're probably not going to see any high end offerings come out before Christmas, PowerColor has done a good job of offering us this card. If you look at the current game releases as well, it's pretty easy to be convinced to buy a new graphics card and why not let it be the DEVIL 13 that offers a strong 3 Year warranty.
