ASUS EAH6970 Review

3D Mark Vantage

In all three of the 3D Mark tests the HD6970EAH is right on a level with the other 6970s we've tested. If nothing else it shows the consistency of the AMD manufacturing process in managing to pump out chip after chip that perform at the same level, and none of the 'selective GPU boards to the biggest partner' thing that can be oh so tempting.

 

3D Mark 11

Similar to the Vantage 3D Mark testing, the ASUS 6970 is spot on with the reference model. The variances are so tiny that we really can't call them as anything other than within tolerance. Especially impressive considering the total difference in bench systems.

The latest variant of the HD6970 comes to us via ASUS. Does their voltage tweak BIOS enable extra performance?

Something still doesn't seem right. A colleague is still scratching his head here.

But looking at it from my pov, I've seen that issue with using an overclocking tool before. You ramp the slider as high as it'll go and you feel you could take it further - and it just won't allow it. It happened

to me recently using afterburner on a 8400 (which is besides the point), but you feel the 'tool' is being told the up/low limits. Perhaps the bios is the key.

If it were mine (I mean donate to me to play with), I'd delve into the bios fiddling menu like atitool/afterburner has and try and massage the limits. From memory tho, if the tool doesn't know the card's bios, it will limit what you can do. I'd still fiddle with it tho.

This is besides the point tho. Off the shelf, something still aint right to me.

Voltage tweak and a oc limit ? Nah, definitely not.

I hate to harp on about it, but those bios versions from the ref card and this would be interesting. I'm going to see if there's any revisions coming out in the future too.Quote
