Diamond HD 6870 XOC


Product Number: 6870PE51GXOC
Warranty: 2 Years


Diamondís cards rarely make much in the way of waves in this industry but their adherence to AMDís reference design usually ensures quality stays consistent. In this case, we see a bare bones package which includes a Crossfire connector and not much else. Considering the XOC can be found for less than $220, the lack of a massive accessory and game package can easily be forgiven.



As weíve already mentioned, the Diamond XOC strictly adheres to the reference design so it uses the standard blower-style heatsink and generic shroud with an XOC-branded sticker being the only distinguishing feature.


The backplate uses a reference layout as well with a pair of DVIs, two mini DisplayPort outputs and a single HDMI 1.4a connector. Unfortunately, since Diamond doesnít include a mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort adaptor, youíll need to buy one in order to use DP-equipped monitors.
