AvP and Crysis Warhead

PowerColor HD6870X2 Review

Alien vs Predator

Things return to normal with AvP as the HD6870X2 completely stuffs the GTX580 it's targeted at and just shades the GTX590!


Crysis Warhead

With Enthusiast settings Crysis Warhead should provide a good test of the raw power of the HD6870X2 and so it proves. Managing to place itself nicely between the HD6870CF and HD6970CF setups. Although the pure average frame-rate shows that it once again keeps pace with the GTX590 it's worth noting the enormous difference in minimum frame-rate. We had a few near stops during testing which just didn't occur with the 'bigger' cards.

I was expecting it to be about £260/70 even with a better cooler £300 seems a bit steep.

Nvida might even drop the price of the 570 or maybe the 580 now in response to this, they usually drop their prices when AMD out performs them.Quote

£130-40 x2 + the lucid on board chip.
