3D Mark Vantage
Despite remaining just behind the HD5870, the 6870 really benefits from the extra speed we obtained out of the memory, gaining almost 1000 3D Marks in the Performance suite and still being 600 points ahead of the stock version in the Extreme test.
No prizes for guessing who the star of the show is though, 28000 Performance marks and 14000+ even under the very stressful Extreme test shows that the scaling on these is simply incredible. We definitely could be looking at another high performance/good value choice.
Unigine with all its high polygon eye-candy is definitely a stern test of any system. Although the 5870 keeps ahead it's not by as big a margin as we saw in 3D Mark.
It's tough to not be dazzled by the Crossfire performance though. 47FPS for one card and 90 for two. How's that for scaling!
Performance of the stock single card definitely drops with such high image quality settings, but the Crossfire just keeps on rocking. 53.3FPS average in as difficult a test as any card will face. You wont close to this performance for the money.
