[Official] Radeon 68*0/69*0 Reviews Thread

post #1 of 2187
Thread Starter 
Please post all new review articles, as well as comments, in this thread. Remember that preliminary reviews/previews will NOT be merged here, and video reviews alone will NOT be added. Feel free to use standard news format in your post, even though it won't be a new thread; this makes it more eye-catching, especially for those with a high post per page count setting like myself. If there are new review articles out and you see new threads for them, simply file a report and state in the report text "Please merge with official thread." or something along those lines. Thank you.

Here are the current review links, in order of posting (not in order of article publishing):

o brb


What I got out of this:

UVD3 Support.
VPP. Media player classic has better playback on the 6xxx series.

Price:
6870 $250 USD
6850 $189 USD

The 6870 is weaker than a stock 5870, stronger than a stock 5850.
The 6850 is stronger than the GTX460 1GB.

Edit: Can I has an Intel + AMD system now?

Okay, i'm buying these... The 6870 > 470 and will probably be cheaper here, and way more efficient. Suddenly i don't miss my 5850 anymore

Looks like Guru3D went into the future and published the article on October 22, 2010.

And they are using old 5850, 5870 CF results etc. No way they did that amount of benching in 1 session.
