Sapphire HD 6970 Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam

Written by Sanjin Rados

Preview: Stylish bundle at a tempting price
Sapphire marked the launch of HD 6970 in a pretty special way – by introducing a special Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam themed edition of the new card. The card comes in a specially designed aluminum suitcase and is bundled with an mini DisplayPort-to-Display Port converter cable and with an 180cm HDMI cable.

The game itself hasn't launched yet but after registering with Sapphire Selected Club, you’ll be eligible to download the full version of the game on 21st of December, when the game launches. Perhaps the best part is that all this comes at only €30 higher price than reference one.

We have a few scores below and more to come soon, and there is even a chance that some of you might win this card. We will announce the details of our holiday giveaway very soon.

The card is already listed in stores and you can find it here.

Sapphire HD 6970 Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam Limited Edition runs at reference clocks, which isn’t a surprise as HD 6970 cards didn’t quite exhibit serious overclocking capabilities. We've been informed that TriXX support will be released for 6900 series and will support overclocking, fan control, saving settings, etc. However, it is unlikely that it will support voltage changes, since it would conflict with Powertune.

All in all, the HD 6970 is a card that will surely satisfy your performance needs.

Ok, I understand that this is probably just me, but why on the graphs you put up, do you not order the graphics cards by performance results so it's easier to just glance at and say "Oh, hey, the GTX 570 beat the HD 6970 here and here but not here." It's really freaking aggravating! I would think it would make mush more sense to order the cards by results (eg. the GTX has a score of 8,046 in the first table, which would rank it above the 6970's 7,851. Then a table at the end for overall performance.

Please tell me, Sapphire, what's the use of this cheap made in China aluminum suitcase? Isn't it straight going to the rubbish bin after I unboxed the video card?

This may be an interesting offer for people in the US - where nobody cares about the environment ...

THAT'S JUST REFERENCE COOLER WITH STUPID STICKER ON IT, YES VERY EXCITING :)
BETTER OPTION WOULD BE WITH VAPOR X COOLER + FREE GAME AND NO CHEAP CHINEESE BOX FOR 30 BUCKS EXTRA I'D SAY
