40nm technology
Faster clocks, double the transistor density of earlier 40nm technology. 40nm technology helped make HD6970 series products the most advanced GPUs ever highest clocks speeds, incredible feature integration, full performance and precision all the time, and ability to take advantage of future, higher-speed memories.
*
Avivo HD
Avivo HD could provide vibrant high fidelity, flawlessly smooth next-generation video playback. Avivo HD technology easily allows your PCs to become digital home media center by its compelling video pipeline design that comprises the latest high definition video hardware acceleration, including H.264 and WMV9.
*
Catalyst control center
ATI's Catalyst control center goes far beyond traditional driver configuration software - it's a feature-rich and stable 3D acceleration control application that puts you in complete command of your ATI visual processing unit (VPU). Catalyst control center offers exceptional graphics performance and visual quality for the ultimate in performance, stability, and innovation.
*
Shader Model 5.0
Shader Model 5.0 adds support for indexed temporaries which can be quite useful for certain tasks. Regular direct temporary access is preferable is most cases. One reason is that indexed temporaries are hard to optimize. The shader optimizer may not be able to identify optimizations across indexed accesses that could otherwise have been detected. Furthermore, indexed temporaries tend to increase register pressure a lot. An ordinary shader that contains for instance a few dozen variables will seldom consume a few dozen temporaries in the end but is likely to be optimized down to a handful depending on what the shader does. This is because the shader optimizer can easily track all variables and reuse registers. This is typically not possible for indexed temporaries, thus the register pressure of the shader may increase dramatically. This could be detrimental to performance as it reduces the hardware's ability to hide latencies.
*
Microsoft DirectX 11
The power of DirectX 11 with awesome performance, stunning visual effects, and more dynamic interactivity than ever before. Ensures the best performance and application compatibility for all DirectX 11 applications. Microsoft DirectX 11 games, with stunning 3D graphics and shading effects.
*
OpenGL 4.1 optimizations
Ensure top-notch compatibility and performance for all OpenGL 4.1 application.
*
CrossFireX
Upgrade to even greater 3D performance quickly and easily thanks to plug-and-play ATI CrossFireX multi-GPU technology PCI-E 2.1.
*
PCI Express 2.1
Now you are ready for the most demanding graphics applications thanks to PCI Express 2.1 support, which allows up to twice the throughput of current PCI Express cards. Doubles the bus standard's bandwidth from 2.5Gbit/s (PCIe 1.1) to 5Gbit/sec.

Good price. Personally, I would get the 6950 and put a 6970 bios on it, but I suppose that's not for everyone...
#2
Yeah a lot of people saying that the HD 6970 bios on HD 6950 causing curruption after more than a few days use. I personally would go for a GTX 480 right now at around £200 if Ididn't have a graphics card.

This is the cheapest I could see a HD 6970, Gigabyte is a good make asweel with decent warranty.

For those cold voting, where can you get it cheaper? so I can grab another lol
#3
I wouldn't stress. you allways get lots of cold voters on high end gpu's :)

We had to get a GTX 470 last week. I knocked a kopparberg over the computer and fried our graphics card. Husband not too happy. Very expensive mishap ooops :(

Everyone says the GTX 570 is better than the ATI 6970, and it;'s cheaper too. was one on here the other day for £240.

Good deal though if it's what your after
