PowerColor HD6970 Devil 13 Review

Alien vs Predator

Performance in AvP is exactly where we'd hope. Just north of 60FPS with all the graphical niceties. Our overclock gives a healthy 3 FPS boost too.

Batman Arkham City

As a very recent game indeed and one that makes full use of PhysX we naturally find the Radeon suffering against the nVidia competition. However if we accept that dumping heavy physics processing on to the CPU will limit the frame-rate, the Devil 13 actually puts up a reasonable showing. Equal at least to the ASUS 448.

this came out of nowhere, stunning card IMO

hopefully they can range the success of this model with the 6k series and move it over to the 7k series.

It would be nice if you could put the Skyrim benchmarks in next reviews as it is a game of the year 2011 for many players, & me 2.

Really good looking card, but as you said yourself it has come out so close to the release of the 7000 series cards that its unlikely a lot of people would purchase it.
