AvP & Crysis Warhead

Powercolor HD6970 PCS + Review

Alien vs Predator

The always visually impressive, if slightly creepy, AvP shows the power of the PCS+. It's as good as the 6970 when Overclocked, but remember this is also quiet, and guaranteed to give this performance.

Crysis Warhead Gamer

Although Crysis is well known for being a stern test it shows how fine the performance of the PCS+ is. Way ahead of it's Radeon contemporaries and up with an overclocked GTX570. Let's push it a bit further shall we.

Enthusiast Maximum Anti-Aliasing

We say maximum because the GeForce and Radeon chips have different AA methods and therefore we've just set it as high as possible for ultimate image quality.

With this being such a hardcore test we've firstly not bothered with the 6950 or GTX560. Although there appears to be some variance between the cards it's only 4 frames between all of them which, given the Crytek Engines desire to fold its arms in a hump sometimes we'll gladly accept. It wasn't that long ago that a single high-end card struggled to do 30FPS in Gamer, and now we've got two sub-£300 cards with everything set as high as possible still rocking major frames.
