Manufacturer: HIS


We would like to thank the following companies for supplying and supporting us with our test system hardware and equipment: Intel, ASRock, Kingston, Mittoni, Noctua and Corsair.

We'll be checking out this CrossFireX setup against some of the most powerful setups we've tested here. We've got single card setups covered in the form of the HD 6970, HD 6990 and GTX 580. As for Dual Card setups, we've got the GTX 560 Ti and GTX 580 in SLI along with the HD 6950 and HD 6970 in CrossFire and the HD 6990 in CrossFireX.

Let's get started!

3DMark 11 is the latest version of the world's most popular benchmark. Designed to measure your PC's gaming performance 3DMark 11 makes extensive use of all the new features in DirectX 11 including tessellation, compute shaders and multi-threading. Trusted by gamers worldwide to give accurate and unbiased results, 3DMark 11 is the best way to consistently and reliably test DirectX 11 under game-like loads.


Very strong performance out the gate from the HIS CrossFireX setup here which sees it fall only second to the HD 6990 CrossFireX setup. There's not much of a difference, though, and a good couple of hundred dollars separating the two setups.
