    Got 2 questions
    I have 2 sapphire hd 6950 2gb gddr5 cards installed was wondering if i would notice a difference in graphics with one Radeon HD 7970
    Second question is will you be testing a 7970 and how good is it compaired to my 6950

    No easy answer. It would depend on the game and the rest of the system.

    For some games / applications there is no doubt it would be better. But maybe not for everything.

          I looked up some Battlefield 3 benchmark results for you.

          For example Tom's Hardware is saying you should already be getting frame rates around 130 FPS with your two 6950s in CrossFire in
          Battlefield 3.

          This kind of frame rate is already pretty good. I doubt you'll see a noticeable improvement in game play by upgrading.

              I assume you are using the latest patch from our web site.
              If so can you run PerformanceTest in debug mode and E-Mail us the log. See this page for details about debug mode,
