We check out the new HIS HD 7970 video card and take the time to overclock it to see how the new GPU model goes from AMD.

Sound Tests

 

 

Pulling out the TES 1350A Sound Level Meter we find ourselves quickly yelling into the top of it to see how loud we can be.

 

After five minutes of that we get a bit more serious and place the device two CM away from the fan on the card to find the maximum noise level of the card when idle (2D mode) and in load (3D mode).

Noise levels also jump up a bit and you can see it does separate itself from the other cards. While not as extreme as the HD 6990; when overclocked, the HD 7970 is going to bring with it some extra dBs as it works to keep the card as cool as possible.
