PowerColor HD6970 Devil 13 Review

Crysis 2

The more modern Crysis 2 is very much a schizophrenic affair. Out of the box with only DX9 settings it's perfectly playable at over 60FPS. Once we apply the Hi-Res texture pack and the DirectX 11 rendering path made available in the v1.9 patch things are less pleasant with the Devil 13 barely able to improve upon a HD6950 and left utterly trailing in the wake of the nVidia cards.

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.

I wonder what the thinking was behind the tool set?
