Sound Tests

Pulling out the TES 1350A Sound Level Meter we find ourselves quickly yelling into the top of it to see how loud we can be.

After five minutes of that we get a bit more serious and place the device two CM away from the fan on the card to find the maximum noise level of the card when idle (2D mode) and in load (3D mode).

For the most part we see the new 7970 lines up pretty evenly with our other single GPU offerings. It's really no louder, nor quieter than them. Of course the HD 6990 as always stands out and it's probably something that's going to cause you to lean towards the single GPU offerings.
