Default XFX ATI Radeon HD 5870 Video Card Unboxing

We got our hands on a retail XFX ATI Radeon HD 5870 Video Card and decided to do a video on it! Check it out on our Youtube channel for the HQ and HD versions! (When they finally upload)



It is looking to be a really great card. Skymtl did an amazing review of the Sapphire version, and XFX offers a great warranty along with some very competitive pricing. It is definitely a card to consider if you are in the market.

XFX's design is definitely my favourite of all the 5870's so far. What is with the cheap looking model renders on sapphire and his :/
