Overclocking Results

Unfortunately for us, we weren’t able to get our hands on a piece of software that would push the HD 6900 series’ cores over their CCC limits in time for this review. This means we were limited to the caps within AMD’s own software which was detrimental for the HD 6950 since AMD was very careful to ensure its overclocked frequencies couldn’t match those of the HD 6970. We will hopefully have the time to revisit this in the near future.

HD 6970 2GB

Core Speed: 950Mhz (CCC limited)
Memory Speed: 5744Mhz (QDR)

HD 6950 2GB

Core Speed: 840Mhz (CCC limited)
Memory Speed: 5300Mhz (QDR) (CCC limited)
