Hello Rodney,

very good review, like always. HIS are producing very good performing products. The cooling solution on this particular card is amazing. The only thing I personal don´t like is that there is no backplate. I really don´t like to look at this ugly pcb.

Take care and many greetings.

Keep up the good work Rodney. :)
Not a very aestheticly pleasing graphics card but its the performance that counts right.

Btw, how does AMD sell the 6970 when its more expensive and has less performance then the the GTX 570 ?

Rodney you forgot to mention that with multi GPU feature and a driver update it can also run with Nvida cards you can do set ups such as
AMD + AMD
HIS 6970 IceQ Mix + AMD HD 6900
HIS 6970 IceQ Mix + AMD HD 6800

AMD + NVIDIA
HIS 6970 IceQ Mix + NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580
HIS 6970 IceQ Mix + NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570

* To run both AMD and NVIDIA GPU, installation of AMD and Lucid Hydralogix Drivers is required.

Rodney thanks for a new review. I really like the more technical specs you give in your reviews, something that a lot of reviews just dont go into.

It's not what you do, it's how well you do it.

WTF you deleted my comment :s why (because you know its wrong right)
only because i think i strange im forced over here(so you can get your ad money.....btw you can do that on youtube) and the vid is still a youtube upload
and deleting a comment of someone with a different opinion then you guys........is unnecessary and well i don't get it :s

and why the video get disliked because they can't view the video at youtube.he makes a video to say there is another video, now thats ridiculous . its like a kick to the groin to your loyal fans.

don't just deleted this please answer me?
why your doing it like this

YouTube comments enabled on my 3GM channel because YouTube comments are 80% BS! Most YouTube comments are off topics, I really don't see the point.

I'm not forcing anyone to come here. If you want to watch my new stuff, then come, otherwise don't. It's really that simple.

i don't really care about the comments on youtube
and its true if i don't want to watch it then don't come, but the video is upload on your youtube account. but not viewable on your channel.
to watch it you must go to this site, forcing us here if you want to watch it. and it's makes you youtube channel pointless imo.
and this is not an offense I'm just wondering why
i just would be much easier if i can watch it on youtube directly.

anyway keep the reviews coming, i will come here if i have to :p

thx for the reply and not deleting it(again)

I know it sounds heartless, but I would have deleted all of these posts. The topic has been said way too many times before. Rodney puts the new content on his main website first. After a few weeks he then allows them to be seen on his YouTube account. In fact YouTube people subscribed to Rodney's channel should get an alert of the video I think? I could be wrong.. We need the ad money to keep the website running, for without this website there is no point in going on and 3GM will be no more. So would you rather 3GM keep running or give all the money to Google that owns Youtube? People need to get off your high horses and allow Rodney to run his business. The fact is you still get to see the videos if you wait, or you can come here and watch the new stuff. As Rodney said before the comments on YouTube are mostly Trolling Spam, so until YouTube works to improve their setup we are locked in our ways.

Everyone needs to get back on topic please..

Check this video => http://www.3dgameman.com/q-and-a/371/whats-really-going-3dgameman .If you don't want to look at it then here's a short version => Youtube channel has to much garbage comments. 7pg's + with only one page with comments that are on topic and make sense. Here it is expected that you post useful comments. Don't start asking why this or why that. Bla bla bla. Check the Q&A pages. There are all the answers you seek. Each review that comes out here will be posted on youtube after two weeks. Even this reply is off topic and I keep a close eye to every review that comes to read the useful comments. Like it or complain against a wall.(nothing personal) Tivon if you are reading this .. let this comment stay for two days then delete it. So if he returns he can read this feedback.

thx for clearing it up. i really don't care about the comments.
but for what reason would he have a 2week delay before you can watch on his channel, i just find that odd
that all.
and in my first comment(which is deleted) here i was just asking why i have to come here, and the rest was on topic.

SORRY for the off topic bit here, its just pissed me off that my comment was deleted :p

Rodney does not delete anything.. Even if I see 99% of a good post, if they say the words "YouTube or Comments" and they are Anonymous users, there is a very high chance I'll just delete the post without any thought behind it. I'm not being a tyrant, but put yourself in my shoes when you are trying to keep the topic or theme in relation to the product. What does any of this stuff have to do with the video card above and that is our point with YouTube comments.

Get back on topic please..

Welcome back Rodney. Taking long trips like that makes you appreciate home, right?

Oh, and good review as usual.

This is a pretty cool card.

Nice cooling and an Lucidhydra chip so it can be used for multigpu gaming with any crossfire OR sli enabled card.

I like the feature but i'm not 100% sure why you would be pairring this card with anything but another 6970. Apparrently the performance when pairring with an nvidia card isn't very good.

A great great review ^^. Still don't love the design of the card. But it performs very well. Same question as below. 30 % fan speed and still 60 C°. That's pretty high. Any chance a 6990 will be tested soon ?

I can see how some people might be turned off from the Ice theme colors and fake looking copper pipes. I'd still use it in my system. :)

30% fan speed and still 60 celsius on idle?

My EVGA GTX 460 does that, and it's on normal cooling..and factory overclocked 20 MHz, which is nothing lol.
