Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Cards in CrossFire - Sound Test

We got a new Sapphire HD 7970 video card into the labs and start to test CrossFire performance of the brand new HD 7970 GPU 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 move up a little bit, but they continue to be at a very bearable level coming in lower than a single card heavily overclocked and a good chunk lower than the HD 6990.
