Introduction

 

So it has been a number of months since the release of the Radeon HD 6850 and 6870. While known for being strong condenders for affordable gaming applications, the product must also be able to stand the test of time. With new competition from nVidia with their GeForce GTX 560 Ti range, any enhancements over the reference 6870 is welcomed in order to remain in check. There are a handful of pre-overclocked cards available today however this time we will be taking a long hard look at the Radeon EAH6870 DirectCu.

Without wasting any further time here is an overview of today's test item.

Perhaps on face value it seems as though the £20 premium doesn't offer much. However if you turn over it will all begin to make sense.

Mul compared to the 460 as that is what he has tested on his system in the past. We are all aware that the 560 is better than the 6870 though Quote
