AMD Radeon HD 7950 3GB Video Card Overclocked - Sound Test

We take the time to overclock our reference AMD Radeon HD 7950 to see just what kind of performance we can expect from the new model.

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).

On the noise front we see that we do climb to the top half of the table. Noise levels do line up with the HD 7970, though, when it was heavily overclocked.
