Radeon HD 6970 Asus Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon HD 6970 Asus Edition is a tweaked Radeon HD 6970 and part of the Radeon HD 6000 Series released by AMD in 2010/2011.
The only difference between Radeon HD 6970 Asus Edition and Radeon HD 6970 appears to be the core clock, which was only raised from 880MHz to 890MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 1% performance boost when compared to the standard Radeon HD 6970.
All demanding games, including very demanding one's like Metro 2033/The Witcher II will run on the highest settings.

On your list of games, you say you ultra war of the roses beta with 60 fps. What FPS do you achieve when you max the beta?

Did some overclocking and I got this clocked @945MHz/1535MHz (6140 effective).
3DMark Vantage results:
Stock clocks P21781 (22126/20806), FPS (68.82/60.67)
Overclocked P22681 (23281/21184), FPS (72.64/64.08)
So I ended up with 900 more Marks (see what I did there?) and +4 FPS :D
Much to my surprise, even the CPU score rose a bit :D
I used AMD OverDrive to OC.
And for anyone who is interested, the current memory bandwidth is 196.48GB/s ;)

Can't go any further (at least with AMD OverDrive)… :D
5MHz more core and the drivers crash, 5MHz more RAM speed and artifacts appear ;)

Haven't tried the 2 games that my rig struggles with (Witcher II & Metro 2033) yet, other games run as good as they did earlier (I use Vsync) ;)

Metro 2033 is the most demanding game available right now. You either need a high end 28nm card or two high end 40nm cards to get it running above 60 fps at ultra settings, mainly because of the extreme quality of the DX11 effects that it uses.

Yes it can run it very well, but if he tried to use the maximum settings, it wouldn't be very playable. A GTX 580, the rough equivalent of Tero's card, gets 35 fps on average at his resolution, seen here.

I'm still thinking about overclocking this… I know I don't have to but with core set to 974MHz and RAM @ 1528MHz (found on a website) I'm curious to see what 3DMark 11 would say :D
