Sapphire Radeon Toxic HD 6870 1GB GDDR5 Review

ChannelPro Network
18 July 2014
  • Excerpt: With the recent launch of NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX560 card, the mainstream market has been redefined. AMD launched the HD 6870 late last year in October aimed squarely at the $250 price point. NVIDIA countered this with their GeForce GTX 460 lowering the price to compete but their true solution to the HD 6870 didn’t launch till January of this year.

XFX Radeon HD 6870 2GB Video Card Review

ChannelPro Network
18 July 2014
  • Excerpt: XFX have decided to release a new version of their highly popular HD 6870 video card. This version has 2 gigs of dedicated video memory instead of the standard 1 gig. XFX has been very good at tweaking their most popular cards to give them better performance and features. This review is going to look at how the addition of an extra gig of memory is able to enhance the overall performance of this card and why it might have been necessary to do this for certain...

XFX Radeon HD 6870 1GB Dual Fan Edition Review

ChannelPro Network
18 July 2014
  • Excerpt: The video card market has changed again, for the better. NVIDIA has launched the GTX560 Ti which is a superior product against the HD 6870 but is slightly higher in price than that card. AMD has responded by launching the HD 6950 1GB card to compete against it at a slightly higher price point than the GTX560 Ti. A competitive landscape for this price point is good for the consumer and keeps both companies on their toes.

HIS Radeon HD 6870 IceQ (1GB)

Legion Hardware
24 October 2011
  • Summary: Here we find HIS attempting to make old technology new as they re-design the Radeon HD 6870, giving it a new lease on life. Although the Radeon HD 6870 is still a current generation product, it is fair to say that after 12 months it is getting a little long in the tooth, especially with the release of AMD’s upcoming Southern Islands (Radeon HD 7xxx) family just around the corner.

AMD Radeon HD 6870 & HD 6850 Launch Review

Rage3D
4 October 2011
  • Excerpt: AMD Radeon 6870 & 6850 Launch Review AMD Radeon Graphics Today AMD introduces a controversial new part, the AMD Radeon HD 6800 series. The highly anticipated two new graphics cards are under the microscope before they even launched thanks to a high-strung rumor mill. Similarly to the AMD ATI Radeon HD 5000 series, the GPU cores are codenamed in theme, rather than by number; this is not RV940, RV970 or R900; this is Northern Islands - this is Barts .

Gigabyte Radeon HD 6870 OC Graphics Card Review

eteknix.com
11 June 2011
  • Conclusion: Final ThoughtsWe’ve taken a look at a few different 6870’s and whilst they have been impressive, none have quite reached the potential of this card. Throughout most of our tests, we found that it kept very close to the figures presented by the 6950’s which shows the potential behind this card is amazing and could save you quite a bit of money if you were originally looking at buying a 6900 series card.
  • Pros: Reliable manufacturer, Quality components used, Close to 6950 performance, Quite cooler, Great styling, Pre-overclocked, Pre-overclock amount is minuscule, Quite pricey, Cooling doesn’t live up to the hype

ASUS EAH6870 1GB Radeon HD6870 Thermal Image Analysis

big bruin
10 March 2011
  • Summary: The revealed two transistors that got extremely hot, while the rest of the card remained in what I would consider safe operating temperatures. This information was useful, as it pinpointed a simple modification to the card that might help to extend its life (as in applying a pair of chipsinks to the two hot components). With the Radeon HD6870, we don't have such focused information on the card and how to improve its cooling.
