HIS Radeon HD 6970 2GB Turbo Video Card 99 | TweakTown.com

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're going to be checking out the HIS HD 6970 Turbo 2GB against a whole bunch of cards which include the HD 5870, HD 6870, HD 6850, HD 6970 and HD 6950 in CrossFire, GTX 570 GLH, GTX 580 and GTX 480.

The main card we're comparing the Turbo against today is the reference clocked Sapphire HD 6970 2GB. Comparing to it will give us an idea of just what kind of extra performance we see from the model and that bump in clock speeds HIS are offering us.

Let's get started!

Under 3DMark 11 we can see a little bump in both presets; nothing major at all here. Hopefully we see some larger improvements when we get into our games.
