Powercolor HD6970 Crossfire Review

3D Mark Vantage

Obviously the star is the GTX580 SLI setup and we'd expect nothing less. That's not really what we're looking at though. When compared to the GTX480 SLI we find the HD6970XF is just behind in performance which relies hugely on raw grunt, but as the image-quality gets higher it edges ahead, and then smashes, the nVidia offering. The HD6870 is very disappointing in comparison and the only surprise is how little benefit the overclock on our HD6970XF gives.


3D Mark 11

Firstly please notice the change of comparisons. 3D Mark 11 is so new we haven't got a huge selection sample to work with. However the thing of importance to note is how great the scaling is. Not quite 100% but we're not so foolish to expect that, it's pretty damn close. Probably about 80% effective. Don't be fooled by the scores being lower than Vantage either, this is smooth.
