ASUS EAH6970 Review
Wow. Here is a turn-up for the books. We're using the same Catalyst 10.12 drivers here as we did on our most recent testing, but there is something about this combination that eats Unigine for breakfast. To gain 5FPS in a benchmark that takes huge amounts of extra grunt to gain a single FPS is stunning. Does the ultra-high settings of 8xAA keep it up.
Normally increasing image quality narrows the gap between results. Especially on systems that should theoretically perform identically. However here the gap widens yet further to a frankly unbelievable 8 frames per second. With both the reference card and this ASUS model at the same clock speeds, the same drivers and with identical speed, but not specification, processors we're really at a loss to explain such a monumental improvement.
So astounded are we, here is the result from Unigine itself.
