  • High overclocking capability without voltage tweaking
As in they were able to attain a high overclock WITHOUT having to change the voltage

What is not expected, however, is the ability for this card to clock all the way above OCC's Core Clock speed comparisons with stability and not even need a voltage tweak.
It's in the review...

The voltage slider was greyed out, Trixx supports reference and some non-reference (those that use the same voltage controller as Sapphires). If it supported voltage tweaking the reviewer would have used it, as with every other review.

Doesn't mean every XFX 6870 BE will hit those clocks. Some more, some less.

The version of Trixx used in the review was an old one (3.0.6). The newest version available was and is 4.0.

In case you didn't know, earlier versions of Trixx were not bug-free & so sometimes experienced different problems with various computers. Voltage control not being enabled is among one of the problems.

Here, have a whiff.

HWC chose to refrain from voltage tweaks with their 6870 roundup as well.

Didn't read that. :u

Didn't really mention HWC. They don't really touch voltage all the time anyway, but I've seen OCC do it a few times so it was expected. :u
