Diamond Radeon HD 6970 XOC 2GB Video Card

The Card










Looking at the card, you can see that Diamond have their own sticker. As for the rest, we've got two power connectors towards the back of the card; one a 6-Pin and the other a 8-Pin. Closer to the front we've got our two Crossfire connectors along with our little BIOS switch. Connectivity comes in the form of two mini-DP ports, HDMI and two DVI ports; one Single-Link and the other Dual-Link.




As we mentioned, this is an XOC model which means it comes pre overclocked out of the box. Diamond has chosen to bump both the core and memory clock and to quite a nice level.




The core has gone from 880MHz to 925MHz while the 2GB of GDDR5 has gone from 5500MHz QDR to 5700 MHz QDR. These are some good gains and it will be interesting to see the kind of performance bump these clocks give the model on a whole.
