Right now I'm torn between xfire 6850/70 and a 2GB 6950.
post #4142 of 6939
My two 6870's rip through pretty much every game right now... I guess BF3 will give them a challenge because I only have the 1gb versions (speculation about how BF3 will eat VRAM on high settings). If I can get over 40FPS at Med-High settings with 4xMSAA I'll be happy.

I'm sure a 6850 paired with a 6870 will be able to take on just as much with no problems.

Warhammer 40k space marine maxed with v-sync never drops below 60 fps in fact my cards dont even go past 35% load or 55c.

Hard Reset maxed out no v-sync between 58 and 33 fps.This must be another console port because when the fps drops there is no change in gameplay no lag or shutter.With this game if I had no software to tell me I wouldn't notice the drop.My cards are fully loaded 96-98 % but temps still haven't broke 60c.Im shore temps will go higher haven't played that long but no game has broke 70c yet.

For all you guys worried about temps my coolers were very reasonably priced and do a great job.Cant beat it for $29.99 each in fact the next best cooler cost almost double the price and is nearly identical in performance.

What are the pushing limits of a 6850 as far as overclocking? I have a watercooled block for it and currently running it at 985/1203 @ 1.250v and i was getting a lower Heaven Benchmark score with my card at 1005/1212 @ 1.265

The limits depend on the card, luck of the draw.one of mine is stable past 1000 core the other not even close.True the lower your temps the better your overclock but only to a point and even then it depends on where you start.A bad overclocking card will get better but it wont turn into great overclocker under water.

With good cooling you can go over 1.35v specially if you have a fullcover waterblock.Just watch your vrm temps.

My good card will get to 1030 core before heat and voltage stop me but performance keeps increases until then.Try 1005 core with a little more voltage but keep your memory low.When my core is the problem I get artifacts or driver errors but when its the memory I get a noticeable performance drop so maybe you hit the limit on your vram overclock.

What are your load temps underwater and how much did it improve verses air cooling?

Hi, is this enough proof? the proof that is not a 6850 is its 900mhz core. can i join? it is also a Sapphire.

Wow are you serious?Thats proof you know how to change bios thats about all. That pic shows a overclocked 6850.If someone sold you that as a 6870 you got robbed.all of us here know a 6850 has 960 Stream Processors clearly seen in that pic where the 6870 has 1120.check the name you cant blow smoke up my a$$.lol

For all you guys trying to get added the op only had his 6870 for a short time and rarely comes back to this thread.He has in the past said to pm him you could give it a try.

Ok take your word for it.I don't play on consoles so had no reason to check.But I thought it a little weird that it plays so smooth at 30 fps even more strange that I really cant tell when it drops from 58 to 33.console port or not it plays extremely smooth and imho its more fun than deus ex and 40k space marine.
