PowerColor HD6970 Devil 13 Review

Battlefield 3

The latest in the Battlefield line of games has similar issues to Arkham City. At stock it's pretty average at only 38 FPS but the overclock helps greatly. Not only does the average frame-rate increase to 45 but the smoothness is a vast improvement. If you didn't know it was only 45FPS you wouldn't know when playing.

Dirt 3

Codemasters Ken Block-a-thon just loves the Devil 13. Not only do we get a good frame-rate out of the box but with the overclock the card just demolishes the game, getting very close to the monster PNY GTX580.

Hi guys, Tom,

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.Quote

Mr Muggles
