HIS IceQ X Turbo Radeon HD 6850

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Im looking at getting this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-363-_-Product

But im just wondering what users here at overclock have overclocked this card to?

Also if ur selling one msg me

I plan on CF 2 of them in the future

Also any personal experiences with this card, good or bad tell me about it (:

EDIT: Almost forgot but I was told by a friend the scaling of these cards is amazing, like over 80%. Is that true?

I don't have much exp with the 6850, but the 68XX series scale very well in crossfire. I have a mild OC on them, I am not on my sig rig right now tho so I can't input.

I would say that if you are planning to game, etc on 1-2 monitors 1080/1200 CF these will be great. They will start to hiccup a bit above those settings due to the VRAM.

Your PSU might need an upgrade if u plan to OC both and have a good OC on ur CPU.

Good luck on your purchase!!!!

Thanks for the input! I plan on getting a new PSU when I have money for a 2nd card. just going to buy 1 for now which will be better then my 5770 anyway. Also I have a res of 1366x768... plan on getting a new monitor soon. Does that cause hiccuping?

You will be fine in that resolution, and you will have room to upgrade to 1080/1200p on one monitor with no issues. I like the CF setup myself, great scaling. I am able to slay pretty much every game out on max settings. The drivers have improved a lot as well.

You shouldn't need more than a 700-800w PSU for that setup.

Make sure you pick up radeonpro for benching / fps meters, and MSI afterburner (or anything with fan profiles) when u CF!
