Roundup: AMD Radeon HD 6970 and 6950

Looks like AMD pulled off a release in time for the holiday shopping season by introducing the Radeon HD 6970 and 6950 a couple days ago, although the pair aren’t perfect – the HD 6970 is indeed a viable alternative to the GTX 570 and even the GTX 580 in some cases. These cards are definitely a step up and should please enthusiasts or gamers alike, but we want shine the spotlight (as many of the reviews did as well) above the HD 6950 in particular as it’s currently noted as the new best performance/price value oriented card.

We had another roundup planned for today, but this launch of the new AMD cards was just simply impossible to put off for another time. Check out the reads we gathered below and feel free to give us your thoughts on these cards in the comments below!

UPDATE: For those of you who wanted more on the model scheme or how all their cards stack up at this point, check out the article by AnandTech – it’s very in-depth and they also have a price comparison of the video cards versus competition as well.
