Excerpt: Who would've thought we'd ever be looking at XFX cards based on an AMD GPU? It's been a long time since we've looked at something from XFX. Going through our content archive, it was August of 2007 and the victim was the 9800 GTX+.
Summary: Despite running at reference-design clock speeds, XFX’s take on the Radeon HD 6870 delivered impressive benchmark compared to the overclocked 768MB and 1GB GeForce GTX 460 cards we tested, as well as an overclocked Radeon HD 5870. The Radeon HD 6870 boasts exceptional price/performance ratios, with an even more impressive performance-per-watt ratio. This card is most definitely a winner.
Pros: Excellent performance for the price; efficient power usage; enhanced display features; great warranty.
Cons: A little on the pricey side (but you get the great warranty).
