PowerColor HD6970 Devil 13 Review
Published: 16th December 2011 | Source: PowerColor | Price: £349.99 |
The Radeon HD6970 has been around for a while now in various guises. It never quite captured the imagination and plaudits that the 4000 and 5000 series did, largely in part to good but not spectacular performance and the utter domination of this round of GPUs by nVidia.
However if one company has managed to make the most out of the Cayman XT GPU it's PowerColor. Their PCS+ edition is probably our favourite of the line and now we have a full-fat, all the bells and whistles model as a grand last hurrah for the HD6970 boards. The PowerColor Devil 13.
With a name like that we're expecting great things.
The Devil 13 certainly comes with everything you could wish for on a high-end card. We have Dual BIOS, one for standard use and one that allows some feisty overclocks. An array of power phases to provide stable and efficient voltages under even the most arduous conditions, and a custom cooler.
