Today we'll be looking at our HIS HD 6970 IceQ Turbo at 1020MHz core and 6200MHz QDR memory against a number of other cards which include; HD 6970, HD 6870 in CF, HD 6950 in CF, HD 6990, GTX 580, GTX 560 in SLI and GTX 580 in SLI.
Of course, a number of these setups are more expensive and the main comparisons we'll be most interested in is comparing the card to both the reference HD 6970 and also the GTX 580 from NVIDIA.
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.
Straight away we can see a really nice boost in performance and you can see with this strong overclock the HIS HD 6970 IceQ Turbo is able to outperform the GTX 580 at the higher resolution X preset.
