The first game supporting DirectX 11 API was quite well handled by all competitors. Only high-res settings (2560×1440) with 4x Anti Aliasing enabled reveal the lack of performance of tested cards.

Although different version of DirectX was used, this did not change the overall picture for original Radeon HD 6950 2GB card and its modifications — its 10% on average. Diffidence for Radeon HD 6950 cards with 1408SPs and 1536SPs and same clocks is still within 3%.

# Avatar Chris,

I picked up a Saphhire HD 6950 today. The one with dual fans and dual bios.
I was happy when I switched to the secondary bios and found the shaders unlocked. No flash necessary.
