I today took possession of a brand new AMD / ATI Radeon 6950 from MSI. It’s an astonishing piece of kit, and I’m delighted to have it.
It’s also very quiet in normal use, which is important in a machine I have to sleep with, so to speak. But when its fan is turned up to 100%, I’ll need ear defenders.
