AMD Radeon HD 6670 1GB Video Card Review

Videocards/VGA Reviews by stefan @ 2011-07-22

The Radeon HD 6670 video card from AMD comes with interesting features like UVD 3.0, Eyefinity with 3 video outputs and offers decent performance in games, while using lower resolutions like 1280x1024, 1600x1200 or 1680x1050, making it a card to consider when building a HTPC system.

Noise measurements

Before finding out the noise the video card was producing, I have first measured the noise the system was producing with no video card installed and I found out it was 36.6dBA.

During the measurement readings, most of the fans inside the case were turned off, but the CPU (43%) and chipset one (30%).

At all times, the sound meter was placed 8cm under the video card.

The GPU fan was controlled by the Catalyst Control Center software:



The 3DMark Vantage scores were calculated by summing up the GPU and CPU subscores.
