HIS HD6970 & HD6950 Review

Alien vs Predator & Crysis Warhead

HIS HD6970 & HD6950 Review

Alien vs Predator

On to the gloriously lit Alien vs Predator and the HD6950, considering it's £60 cheaper than anything else on test, performs admirably. The HD6970 just splits the GTX570 which is good considering that price-wise it's aimed right at it on price-terms and just above it according to AMDs market positioning table.

Crysis Warhead

Eventually we've reached a point in Crysis where the graphics cards are no longer the limiting factor, but rather it's the game engine itself. Both AMD efforts give almost identical results, along with the GTX580. The GTX570 manages to get ahead mainly due to driver improvements between the time we reviewed the GTX580 and it, but otherwise all is very closely matched.

Excellent thanks a lot for the effort Tom !

So it was as I thought then. The 6970 does indeed sit between the 470 and 570 and the 570 is now the card to have.

What's a shame is that any one sitting on the side of the bed deciding which woman to spend the night with has now been thrust into the arms of the green bitch. It's going to be a good Christmas for Nvidia... I mean, if you weren't sure before then for £20 less at least then you can be sure now.

Ah well. Good luck to Nvidia. This should keep them from going bankrupt and keep prices fair for us gamers which is, after all, the most important part

Again, thanks for all your effort and hard work. Truly appreciated here Quote

Well of course, that goes without saying

Beers all round it is then

Haha this feels kinda weird, but before last night the phrase on the tip of my tongue was

God, I can't wait to see what Nvidia have in response to the 69xx !

It's just a repeat of the 460 really. ATI come back with something barely as good but are late to the party..

Sorry if I missed it Tom, but how big are these cards? they look massive Quote

Ah OK fair enough. It's probably the 6990 that was the Playstation 2 with a big red fan in the end the bigger one Quote
