The Sapphire Radeon HD 6970 100311BFVSR is a premium PCI Express 2.0 x16 graphics module that supports three simultaneous monitors via one HDMI interface, dual Mini DisplayPorts, and two DVI ports. It features 2GB of DDR5 memory operating at 1375MHz (5.5Gb/s effective). Also included are 960 shaders, 1336 stream processors, and 96 texture units. As such, the 100311BFVSR graphics card can easily handle the most demanding 3D games with medium to high graphics. Mind you, the module is CrossFire compatible, meaning two can be combined, at which time a game like Crysis can be played at 8X AA with speeds up to 70-100fps.
