Sapphire HD6870 Toxic Edition Review – the fastest HD6870 available?
1 February 2011
Excerpt: 1 Flares 1 Flares × Sapphire have a well earned reputation as one of AMD’s finest partners. Their Vapor X and Toxic Edition cards command a small price premium while offering significant advantages in all key areas. Today we are looking at the as yet unreleased HD6870 Toxic Edition with custom Vapor-X cooler and ‘out of the box’ clock enhancements.
Excerpt: Our initial reaction to the launch of the new 6000-series Radeon graphics cards was one of mild disappointment. Probably not the reaction AMD was looking for, especially having finally retired the ATI name in favour of using its own three letter moniker. Radeon 5000-series cards have dominated our awards in recent years, and we were hoping for a big leap forward in performance, matched undoubtedly by a serious price hike.
Excerpt: 4 Flares 4 Flares × KitGuru is old in the tooth and likes naming conventions which don’t change. With the launch of the Radeon HD 6000 series, AMD has altered its naming strategy. The high end cards will now be the 6900 series (due November) and the 6800 cards that we’re looking at today, will actually be sold for less than £200 each, including VAT (we’re guessing that’s under $250 for our American readers).
Summary: La serie HD 6800 segna un importante aggiornamento delle GPU AMD; la profonda ottimizzazione che è stata svolta ha portato ad un notevole miglioramento delle performance per unità di elaborazione, è lecito quindi aspettarsi ulteriori interessanti sviluppi per quanto riguarda la serie HD 6900.
Le HD 6870 sono schede versatili, si posizionano sotto il profilo delle performance tra le HD 5850 e le HD 5870, ma con un prezzo di lancio decisamente più allettante.
