The PCS+ cards from Powercolor have always been a mighty fine performer. Is their 6970 version as potent?

Love the Powercolor red PCB, it's a nice deep proper red that suits an ATi/AMD build extremely well.

I watched the vid and was quite surprised, Powercolor are one of the last brands I think of when buying a graphics card Asus and MSI being the first but they have done a good job of the 6970. It might not be the bedt looking card (in my opinion) but it's the best performance wise.

The cooler is the same as the one Palit used on their 285 cards, red pcb too, (I'm trying to kill one atm) except I wouldn't swear the copper's the same thickness. Shrouds are shrouds.

I've got to take a look at these drivers, there has to be a reason for what they've done.

Add another 120£ and get two GTX 560 TI & run them in SLI and this whole review will be blown to bits, Seriously AMD has got to do something about the prices of 6970 &6950 because OC UK are selling the ASUS 480 GTX for 219£ & SCAN have just put it out for 208£ so a word of advice to AMD’s marketing department you need to sit-down and rethink your pricing strategy because the time of stupid impulse buyers is over everybody these days has become specialist in buying computer components and read loads of reviews before buying anything, the world has changed and we now have very smart customers, believe me that’s the message I’ve been trying to but in my dinosaur boss head for months now but without any results unfortunately.
