XFX 5970: difference between normal and black edition? Tags: Radeon Overclocking Graphics Last response: May 12, 2010 3:46 PM in Graphics & Displays Share maxwell_jr May 11, 2010 7:40:55 PM Hi, sorry I really feel a bit stupid like not being able to use search engines, but I failed to find a definitive answer what the different would be between the normal XFX 5970 and the black edition. Some reading hinted me that the black edition is laid out for overclocking, but I'm not sure. Is the answer that simple? thanks :-) More about : xfx 5970 difference normal black edition Derbixrace May 11, 2010 8:28:06 PM well the black edition is factory overclocked and i believe you get a overvolting tool with it. wa1 a b K Overclocking May 12, 2010 1:41:17 AM No need to buy black edition, because with normal version, you can OC it for yourself...
