    When was the last time HIS included all in one screwdrivers with their cards? I miss them :(
    Last time when I saw them was when they included them with the 48xx cards

    I really wish more cards came with overclocks that are more than tens of MHz faster, overclocks like these can be done by almost every card but a bump of say 100mhz on the core would probably have to use some very selectively binned chips meaning they really should be worth the extra money.

    The increase is not very much in terms of the base clock, the stock 6950 is 1250MHz base so 5000MHz effective and stock 6970 is 1375MHz base so 5500MHz effective.

    As GDDR5 is the base clock x4 to get the effective speed its only a 30mhz bump on the 6950's base clock to 1280MHz and 25mhz on the 6970's base clock to 1300MHz.

    When cards start using the 1750MHz base/7GHz effective GDDR5 chips that Hynix has created then it will be very impressive.
    *hopes they will be used on the 7xxx and 6xx cards* :D
    SvB4EvA says thanks.

    clocks seem abit sad ,more of a gimmick. a normal 6970 will do 950 on core and 1450 on memory with nothing more than ccc and you can get 1000 on the core with 1.225v with hardly any difference in temp with small change to fan speed.

    Sounds dumb, should they not do that anyways with any overclocked card or are they saying that they don't normally bother to increase the fan speed when they sell pre overclocked cards.

    Usually it's best to just buy a reference card and overclock it yourself. Spending extra $$$ on pre-overclocked cards is just throwing your money away. I guess they are an option for people who are totally clueless about computers or are paranoid about damaging their hardware.
