It has been just over two weeks that AMD came out with their HD 6000 series graphics cards, but the market is already all heated up over these mainstream products. Graphics card manufacturer Vertex3D today placed its own offering in the market in the form of the souped-up Radeon HD 6850 X Edition.

Factory overclocked to meet the expectations of the gaming and enthusiast crowd, the new Radeon HD 6850 X Edition from Vertex3D runs at a solid 800MHz core clock speed. This is 25MHz faster than the reference card speed of 775MHz. Vertex3D has equipped the card with 1GB of GDDR5 VRAM clocked at 1,050MHz (4.2Gbps) and with a 256-bit interface. When clubbed with the 930 stream processor, this should make for some interesting graphics and overclocking experience

If the card has been customized, the cooler must be a custom one too and Vertex3D has not disappointed in this department. The special cooler features two copper heatpipes set around a single fan with 92mm fins. The setup is quite effective and keeps the card nicely cooled with noise down to a smooth hum.

For connectivity, the card comes with a 6-pin PCI Express power connector and sufficient video ports in the form of dual-DVI, HDMI, and DisplayPort connectors. It goes without saying the Radeon HD 6850 X Edition supports CrossFireX and Eyefinity technologies. With so much good stuff under the hood, gamers should face no issues running even the most demanding games at maximum settings.

All eyes now are on availability and pricing, which should hopefully be made public soon.

Hi, I am in need of retrieving files from this old IDE HDD, and I was wondering whether anyone has used one of them converters to USB? I have no PC to attach the HDD so I am having to use USB. I only discovered this was possible a couple of months ago (I know lol) and have been interested, and since then found out an old HDD with some 'memories' on.

Could someone please share their experiences with me?

Thank you.

I have a AC RYAN one works great but mine has a 110v/240v power adapter and that stuffed up i still can use it (using a old working PSU).
Besides that It was great, Could use sata drives, IDE drives and laptop IDE drives all in the one device. Only draw back was it was USB speeds so was slow to get the data off larger drives.

Any way there recommended just see if you can get a good known and trusted brand like shintaro.
They are great for the price you pay to, cheap.
