As you'd expect straight away we see the awesome gains being shown on the PowerColor offering when clocked at 1200MHz on the core.

 

We're right on the tail of the dual GPU HD 6990 and you can see performance against even the strongly overclocked GTX 680 is very close with the Xtreme preset showing barely any difference between the two video cards.
