XFX Radeon HD 5970 Black Edition, Limited Edition Unboxing

The most elaborately packaged graphics card ever!



This card sports 4GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4.8GHz and dual Cypress GPUs clocked at 850MHz, 125MHz faster than the reference models. This would be enough for most gamers, but the XFX card takes the 4GB HD 5970 in an entirely new direction. This is because the card uses six Mini-DisplayPorts to add support for up to six monitors using the ATI Eyefinity technology. With 3200 Stream processors to go with it this thing is a beast, however if you fancy buying one then expect to drop around £450-£480 on one here in the UK.

With the 6XXX series cards around the corner, this would be excessive - and most likely a waste of money, even for the immense horsepower it sports.

It does however come with a ton of extras, and some people have to have the best of the best ofcourse - so live and let live I guess.

  3. If I ever bought that, I'd take it to the mall and open it up. Just to watch peoples faces. Or get shot.

  22. Like Seb said, my 8800gtx suits me just fine. Video cards are like sports cars, IMO. Just overcompensation.

  23. I am using a HD4870 I got for 50 bucks a year ago, and got the 50 bucks by selling my 3870. So it was like a free trade up
