HIS Radeon HD 7970 6GB IceQ X2 (Dual GPU) Video Card Review - Sound Test

HIS brings a dual GPU Radeon HD 7970 video card to the market and we find out if it's something you want. Is there really any question about it, though?

Sound Test

 

 

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 side of things you can see we're sitting towards the top. It's not too bad, but you can see we do creep just into the 70dB mark.
