AMD's Mobility Radeon HD 6970 In CrossFire On Eurocom's Panther

Benchmark Results: Audio And Video Encoding

We put Eurocom’s Panther 2.0 through our usual platform performance tests to show that its high-capacity drive is competitive in daily tasks, in spite of its slower load times. We’ll limit our remarks to results that appear remarkable.

DivX is the first benchmark to show a noticeable performance difference between the competing system’s SSD and Eurocom’s hard drive. Remember that our real-world benchmarks reflect running performance, rather than load times.

    Impressive gaming performance, power draw and price.

    Just goes to show AMD is more than just a big hitter in the CPU ring. Well done.

    So here we go again... using CPU tests for GPU articles...

    You know programs like photoshop, 3dStudio Max etc can really benefit from a good GPU, but definitely not on that tests you are running here.
    At 3d studio final renders are a CPU job and the GPU doesn't get involved in that at all, but if we have a heavy populated scene and we try to move around the camera or an object with openGL/Direct3D preview on all 4 views, THEN a good GPU can make the difference and this is where we can see as well the benefits of pro cards vs the gaming ones.

    So please, use the software and the hardware in a better way so we can get a better picture of the performance, people doesn't just play games, we are interested to see the actual benefits from a GPU while we work as well.
