When it comes to video cards for my computers one of my favorite brands has always been XFX. The gang at XFX has always seemed to offer up some fast products with a nice bundle for gaming geeks to enjoy. With the official, launch today of the AMD HD 6970 and HD 6950 video cards the time is neigh for all the card partners to start tossing their own offerings onto the market.
XFX has unveiled its branded video cards and they sound nice. The HD 6970 has 2GB of GDDR5 RAM, uses HD3D technology from AMD and has HDMI 1.4a output along with a DisplayPort 1.2 output. XFX notes that it will be offering some overclocked versions of the card.
