Comment Thread for AMD Radeon HD 6870 & HD 6850 Review
The HD 5800 series cards have been very popular but their time in the market is coming to an end. Today marks the release of AMD's new HD 6870 1GB and HD 6850 1GB GPUs. These are products which will be the first step towards "refreshing" the entire Radeon graphics lineup from top to bottom. Considering the heavy competition from the likes of NVIDIA's GTX 460 1GB and 768MB cards, the first of the HD 6000 series will definitely have their work cut out for them.

Error Alert!

Nice review SKY!!!
