PowerColor HD6990 LCS Review

3D Mark Vantage

The enormous overclock we're able to squeeze out of the PowerColor really helps push the LCS into new heights in 3D Mark Vantage. Of course a Radeon wont quite best an nVidia card in this particular benchmark, but 30000 in the High test is nothing to be sniffed at. The Extreme setting is missing as 3D Mark Vantage requires 1920x1200 for this but our Iiyama monitors are 16:9.

3D Mark 11

With the additional overclock our HD6990 finally breaks through the 10000 barrier in 3D Mark 11 and ends up second only to the awesome power of the GTX580 SLI setup.

I'd just like to add that h20 added expense to one side, graphic cards with water blocks on them look very sexeh !

(Results in the oc3d reviews are still troubling me, especially when you look at same cards with better settings, where, to be fair, they really can't be slower.)

Ultra damn fast fps for sure. No quality and physx for me tho.

I actually thought it would be more expensive.

First off, nice review as always. Do love how the card has a full cover waterblock =D.

Personally I think any card that comes with a waterblock by default should have some sort of voltage tweaking so you can better exploit the extra cooling potential.

Also on the side note:

Call of Duty - Black Ops

If you're a fan of the Infinity Ward shooter then you have nothing to worry about here, or to be honest with any card. WTF
