There are no new GPUs on the immediate horizon, but can Sapphire's Radeon HD 6970 Dual Fan edition make up for that? If you're into some freakish overclocking numbers then maybe it can. The Cayman XT-based HD 6970 is the company's fastest single-GPU based card out of the box. But what if you want it to go even faster, how do you go about it? Well, in the case of AMD's biggest board partner, Sapphire, you replace the PCB with your own design, build in improved power components, throw the reference cooler in the bin and replace it with a custom dual-fan design. Then finally you tweak the twangers off the standard HD 6970's dual BIOS to offer a choice between normal and super-duper, voltage-crazy overclocking. The OC options allow access to higher voltages for the core, faster memory speeds and faster fan speeds. The resulting HD 6970 Dual Fan Edition offers the choice between using the standard clock speeds (880MHz core, 1,375MHz) or, by flicking a switch, and using Sapphire's own TriXX overclocking utility, which is a good deal faster. Keep pushing What's important about this Sapphire HD 6970 is just how much farther can we push the card now that Sapphire has been delving around in it's design.

You also get full control over what goes in the...

Affordable and factory overclocked, Palit's GeForce GTX 560 Ti Sonic could be the ideal iteration of Nvidia's latest mid-range Fermi.The GeForce GTX 560 Ti caused a bit of a stir last month when it first hit our test benches. We were, and still are, fans of the GTX 460 and were hoping for more of the same graphical goodness in this next generation. Unfortunately though it doesn't hold as special a...

The graphics card dance continues to rumba on in the shape of Nvidia's GeForce GTX 560 Ti.It seems that pretty much every week of the last six months we've seen a new GPU design hit our desktops. If it isn't Nvidia refining and rolling out more and more spins of its rather speedy Fermi architecture it's AMD trying to keep pace with an opponent that had seemed to overtake it before rolling out its ...
