This HD6970 keeps Bad Company

Where most Radeons come with DiRT 3, Sapphire has gone a very different way with a  Battlefield Bad Company 2 Vietnam Special Edition.  The card sports a very nice graphic celebrating the game and comes in an impressive looking aluminium briefcase, unfortunately the promotion which gives you the game for free had expired in the case that [H]ard|OCP received.  That may be true of all of the cards, which does detract from the value of the package somewhat.  The card is not factory overclocked but don't let that discourage you since it is voltage tweak friendly and comes with Sapphire's TriXX overclocking software, which let them raise the GPU 85MHz to 965MHz and the GDDR5 effectively gained 80MHz to hit 1455MHz total.  That overclock puts the card in almost the exact same performance level as the GTX 580.  [H]ard|OCP loves the look but does mention the "Game Edition" that Sapphire offers has all of the overclocking potential of this on but at a lower price.

"The SAPPHIRE HD6970 BFBC2: Vietnam Special Edition will be competing with NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 570 and NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 580. We overclock the SAPPHIRE HD6970 BFBC2:V Special Edition using SAPPHIRE TriXX Tweak Utility and voltage tweaking to see how it can compare to the more expensive GTX 580."
