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.


Today we'll be comparing the MSI HD 6950 Twin Frozr III Power Edition Overclocked against the MSI HD 6950 Twin Frozr II, Sapphire HD 6970, MSI GTX 560 Ti and MSI GTX 570.


It'll be interesting to see what kind of extra performance we're able to achieve from the MSI Power Edition with the big overclock we managed to achieve today.


Let's get started!


3DMark 11

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.




Straight away we can see the performance boost. Compared to the HD 6970, you can see our Power Edition manages to get a nice jump on it thanks to that strong overclock we managed to achieve. Hopefully this translates well into our real world games and we see some strong performance increases.
