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 .

MSI Radeon HD 6870 HAWK 1 GB

techPowerUp!
14 February 2011
  • Summary: MSI's HD 6870 HAWK comes with a full range of features for overclockers. The most important are software voltage control for three voltages via MSI Afterburner, voltage measurement outputs, OCP disable switch and the dual BIOS which can help to recover the card from a bad BIOS flash. In the second BIOS, MSI has placed a low-noise optimized version of the normal performance BIOS which does a decent job reducing noise levels.
  • Pros: BIOS switch to change between normal and low-noise BIOS, Quiet, Support for voltage control via I2C, Three voltages can be changed using MSI Afterburner, Overclocked out of the box, Full size HDMI output, Low temperatures, Voltage measurement access, OCP can be disabled via DIP switch, Support for DirectX 11
  • Cons: CCC Overdrive limits might be too low, Overclocking potential does not impress, High Blu-ray power consumption, Lack of 3-way and 4-way CrossFire support, Silent BIOS not a quiet as it could be, Higher power draw than reference design, DirectX 11 relevance limited at this time, No support for CUDA/PhysX

HIS Radeon HD 6870 Turbo 1 GB

techPowerUp!
28 October 2010
  • Summary: The HIS Radeon HD 6870 Turbo is the first overclocked variant of the HD 6870 design to reach our testing labs. At this time board partners can only perform minimal modifications to the reference design: bundle, sticker, clock frequencies and fan settings. More advanced changes like different thermal solution or PCB changes are not allowed by AMD at this time.
  • Pros: Nice performance increase in this price segment, Improvement in performance per Watt, Low power consumption, Native full-size HDMI output, GDDR5 memory, HDMI 1.4 & DisplayPort 1.2 support, EyeFinity support - up to 6 displays with one card, Support for DirectX 11
  • Cons: Limited overclocking potential, Overclock out of the box is rather small, Noisy cooler, High Blu-ray power consumption, Lack of 3-way and 4-way CrossFire support, CCC Overdrive limits might be too low, DirectX 11 relevance very limited at this time, No support for CUDA / PhysX

Gigabyte Radeon HD 6870 review

The Guru of 3D
26 October 2010
  • Summary: The Gigabyte R6870 in it's baseline performance is 100% similar to the reference products from our launch review. There's not a MHz different in-between the products. In fact the R6870 is merely the reference product with another sticker on. But that's not a bad thing as the 6870 all by itself is a really lovely product  that offers performance and features at a decent price while keeping your power consumption, heat and noise levels well under control.

HIS Radeon HD 6870 1 GB

techPowerUp!
21 October 2010
  • Summary: When we first heard about AMD's new Radeon HD 6800 Series and the renaming bonanza that came with it we were quite sceptical whether the HD 5700 successor GPU had it in it to fill the big shoes of the HD 5800 Series. I have to admit I am pleasantly surprised by the product AMD has delivered to us. The new AMD Radeon HD 6870 offers substantially increased performance compared to the HD 5770: up by 56%. This alone almost justifies the different naming scheme.
  • Pros: Nice performance increase in this price segment, Great price/performance, Good overclocking potential, Improvement in performance per Watt, Low power consumption, Native full-size HDMI output, GDDR5 memory, HDMI 1.4 & DisplayPort 1.2 support, EyeFinity support - up to 6 displays with one card, Support for DirectX 11
  • Cons: Noisy cooler, High Blu-ray power consumption, Lack of 3-way and 4-way CrossFire support, CCC Overdrive limits might be too low, DirectX 11 relevance very limited at this time, No support for CUDA / PhysX

Test: Gigabyte Radeon HD 6870 OC mit besserer Kühlung

Hardwareluxx
28 December 2010
  • Summary: Mit der Gigabyte Radeon HD 6870 OC durften wir nun ein weiteres Modell der schnellen Mittelklasse-Grafikkarte in unserer Redaktion begrüßen. Während die werkseitige Übertaktung - sofern man dabei überhaupt von Übertaktung sprechen darf - mit gerade einmal 915 MHz sicherlich kein Kaufkriterium sein dürfte, weiß der verbaute WindForce-3X-Kühler durchaus zu gefallen.
  • Pros: Geringer Aufpreis zum Standardmodell, Angenehm leises Betriebsgeräusch, Gutes Overclocking-Potential
  • Cons: 15 MHz mehr sind kein Overclocking, WindForce-3X-Kühler erzeugt leises Brummen, Geringer Lieferumfang

Kurztest: Gigabyte Radeon HD 6870

Hardwareluxx
9 November 2010
  • Summary: Großartige Überraschungen gab es mit der Gigabyte Radeon HD 6870 nicht, denn mit Ausnahme des obligatorischen Hersteller-Aufklebers entspricht die neue Grafikkarte eins zu eins dem Referenzmodell von AMD. So leistet der verbaute Dual-Slot-Kühler gleiche Dienste: Während er im Leerlauf auf einem angenehm leisen Geräuschniveau verblieb, drehte der 70 mm große Radiallüfter unter Last etwas weiter auf, sodass unser Testmuster deutlich aus dem geschlossenen Testsystem...
  • Pros: Gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis, Leises Leerlauf-Betriebsgeräusch
  • Cons: Keine Verbesserungen im Vergleich zum Referenzlayout, Kaum Mehrleistung zur ATI Radeon HD 5870

Testy Gigabyte AMD Radeon HD 6870 vs GTX460 'OC' / GTX470

TwojePC.pl
22 October 2010
  • Summary: Na gorąco, po pierwszym kontakcie z kartą HD6870 i tym samym nową architekturą HD 6000 wrażenia są pozytywne. Cena europejska w momencie premiery to prawdopodobnie 250 Euro z VAT. Z ostatecznym werdyktem jeszcze się chwilę wstrzymam do czasu poznania realnych cen w złotówkach nowości AMD, jednak już teraz można wyciągnąć pewne wnioski.
