ASUS HD6870 Crossfire Review

Similar to the insides we've seen in the HIS review, the underside of the ASUS is very familiar to anyone with a ATI Radeon 5 series card.

However as we've got two of them, who wouldn't want to see them side by side in all their glory.

The red striping on the side takes a little getting used to. It does look more like a licorice allsort here against the stark white backdrop than it does in the flesh. Certainly once it's in the rig and cabled up it's very unobtrusive.

Two 6pin PCIe power connectors supply all the juice you could need, whilst twin mini-HDMI, twin DVI and a HDMI 1.4 port give you a wealth of connectivity options.

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)
