Powercolor HD6970 Crossfire Review

Alien vs Predator

It's become a common theme that results in synthetic gaming benchmarks don't follow through in real-life testing and so it proves here. Although much less than we'd imagine. Despite the GTX580SLI being ahead, as we'd have bet our house it will be, the HD6970XF isn't disgraced at all being only 10 meaningless frames behind the nVidia behemoth, and 20 ahead of the fiscally comparable GTX480 SLI setup.


Crysis Warhead

Moving on to Crysis Warhead we firstly have to point out that for our SLI/Crossfire testing we move from our usual 0xAA Gamer setup into maximum territory with full anti-aliasing and Enthusiast levels of detail. Settings that reduce almost anything to a slide-show prove no match for the HD6970XF as it nearly makes 60FPS when at stock and with our overclock it breaks past the magical 60FPS barrier.
