Does the RADEON HD 6970 beat NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 580 in performance? The answer to that is No. The card is fast but is more akin to competition for the GeForce GTX 570. Is the HD 6970 a good purchase for the price it’s target at? Absolutely, the HD 6970 is priced just above the GTX 570 making it a good choice for those wanting the extra power this card brings to the table. The XFX RADEON HD 6970 is a great card fully competitive bringing the features such as PowerTune, EQAA and excellent value for the money that I would expect from a XFX card. Therefore this card gets an Editor’s Choice award for value. If you want a fast card and are a fan of the RADEON brand, the new XFX HD RADEON 6970 is a serious gamers card that wont break the bank!
