Sapphire HD6870 Dual Fan Overclock Edition Review (with Dirt 3)
20 September 2011
Excerpt: AMD’s HD6870 has risen in popularity in recent months, as prices have continued to drop. Today in the UK you can pick up a Sapphire 1GB HD6870 for £135 inc vat , making an ideal, low cost purchase for gaming at 1080p. Today we are looking at a heavily modified card from Sapphire which is supplied with a proprietary two fan cooling system and custom PCB design.
Excerpt: Not so very long ago, the launch of a new graphics chip family was a truly exciting event in the IT world. A flood of press conferences would be quickly followed up by a set of feverish reviews picking apart every new technological transformation. These days things have rather calmed down, and it's been some years since we've seen a truly remarkable addition to the graphics chip market.
Sapphire HD6870 Toxic Edition Review – the fastest HD6870 available?
1 February 2011
Excerpt: 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: 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). How much can any gamer get from a graphic card that costs so little?
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.
