AMD’s 1 GB Radeon HD 6950s are certainly cheaper than their 2 GB predecessors. But are they really a better value? In theory, the Cayman GPU runs out of steam before 2 GB is needed. So, we're comparing five custom 1 GB cards to the 2 GB part to find out.
Two GPUs are great, but are three that much better? When it comes to multi-card scaling, can AMD finally beat Nvidia? Who really needs this much performance? We loaded a super-fast system in single-, dual-, and triple-GPU configurations to find out.
Most of our testing happens on open-air racks, so fully-configured PCs are somewhat of a novelty around here. Well though-out water-cooled machines are even more luxurious. We tracked down 20 different boxes to show off some enthusiast workmanship.
Ready for more box shots? We thought so... but this time we have some full frontal of hardware for you to feast your eyes on too!
Solaris Computer Systems changed its name to MaxForce PC and set its top-tier Revolution GTX3 system down at our table. Let’s see how the beast measures up to some tough competition.
