Radeon HD 6970 XXX Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon HD 6970 XXX Edition is a tweaked Radeon HD 6970 and part of the Radeon HD 6000 Series released by AMD in 2010/2011.
The differences include increased core and memory clocks, from 880MHz to 900MHz and from 5.5GHz to 5.6GHz respectively.
Therefore, the performance gain should be between slightly and significant, when compared to the Radeon HD 6970, putting Radeon HD 6970 XXX Edition somewhere between Radeon HD 6970 Asus Edition and Radeon HD 6970 Lightning Edition.
All demanding games, including very demanding one's like Metro 2033/The Witcher II will run on the highest settings.

you shouldn't buy this gpu, it's outdated with almost no, if any driver support.. better get an r7 270 for 130$ it's better and has great driver support.
