Radeon HD 6970 PowerColor 2GB Edition compatibility review

Overall, the AMD Radeon HD 6970 PowerColor 2GB Edition has very good performance. The levels of performance that can be reached with this graphics card are in fact far and beyond the acceptable ranges when running the latest applications and games. This graphics card is now over 8 years old, which means it is extremely out of date and is based on very aged technologies. The driver support for the AMD Radeon HD 6970 PowerColor 2GB Edition is now fairly poor, so don't count on any new game optimizations. You may also encounter more and more graphical oddities as newer games are released.

With an effective SPU count of 676, the AMD Radeon HD 6970 PowerColor 2GB Edition processes shading and special graphical effects with no trouble at all. The GPU is extremely power-hungry at 250 Watts, however.
