ASUS HD6870 Crossfire Review

The ASUS HD6870

The front of the box reminds us a lot of other ASUS boxes we've seen and that's definitely a good thing. ASUS have always had packaging sorted, especially for the mid to high-end items and the 6870 is no exception.

Inside we find the usual ASUS quality black box with the gold logo we've come to know and love. The accessories package is exactly what we'd expect to find at this price.

The card itself is an exercise in understated minimalism. Pure black except for four red 'racing' stripes and the ever-present ASUS logo in the corner.

It's a nice touch to see the fan is decorated to match and all in all it's a very nice black and red card that will fit discreetly alongside the rest of your rig.

Great review and let’s hope the 6900 series delivers the full potential of these cards!Quote

Was hoping for more bang than that but as the same as the 5xxx once the drivers get sorted out I imagine we will see a big jump in improvement so cant wait for that. Would love to see these OC'd to there limit if there as stable as tom said with out even turning up the voltage.

Also glad to see these push the 460 prices down Quote

Seems that AMD have caught the infection from Nvidia and are selling us the same cards from their last generation with a bit of small improvements which gives me an idea of their marketing team (just call it a new name 6870 and everybody will think its super and it will sell like hot chocolate)
