Powercolor HD6970 PCS + Review

As we're already running heavily overclocked out of the box and our own overclock only gained us 20MHz we're running the PCS+ "as is". Slap bang in the middle of our graph so it's easy to compare to the overclocked and stock reference HD6970 card.

3D Mark Vantage

If 3D Mark Vantage is a fair reflection on what we can expect to see then this should be an enjoyable review. It absolutely obliterates the reference card and although the reference overclocked result is close you have to remember that it comes at a hefty noise price, and also of course no guarantee you'll reach that level.

3D Mark 11

How about that then. The PCS+ out-performs the GTX570 in 3D Mark 11. Although 3D Mark 11 is a very different test to Vantage, relying much more heavily on shader abilities, there is no denying the results.
