Haven't really played with it too much but I don't see these cards getting much over 1000mhz on the core unless under water or with better cooling.
Did you see my results?

ASUS 6870
Core: 1035 (15%)
Memory: 1155
Volts: 1.35v
Temp: 78C Max @ 70% Fan

Used ASUS Smart Doctor to increase the volts, then closed it out and saved the voltage setting.
Opened MSI Afterburner and OC'd from there.
Modded Afterburner Config File to increase core clock beyond 1000MHz.
Thanks to the people that recommended this technique.

That's quite a lot of volts. And 70% fan speed is unbearable for anything other than benchmarking.

What's the farthest you could get on auto fan speed?

I never use auto fan speed. It always end in a very hot card.

I use AB fan profiles, 35% idle, 50% full load. That result was only for benching.
I game around 975/1150 @ 50% fan with stock volts.

Here is the other results:
Quote:
ASUS 6870
Core: 1040 (15.5%)
Memory: 1160
Volts: 1.35v
Temp: 79C Max @ 60%
As you can see, I got faster, lowered the fan by 10% and the temp only increased 1c.

Note: ASUS Smart Doctor is not as stable as MSI Afterburner. You will need to increase volts to go pass 950MHz in Smart Doctor. Use Afterburner to increase your clocks past 950MHz on stock volts.

The reason why the volts are so high is because Smart Doctor isn't as efficient when compared to Afterburner. The 6870 is stubborn once you pass 1030, increasing the volts into the 1.3-1.5 range isn't uncommon. Once MSI updates AB I should get better results on less volts hopefully.

Hopefully by Tue I will have my second 6870 in. I will post some new benchmark for everyone. Hopefully there will be a new oc tool. I tested 2 cards out yesterday. one sapphire and my msi on a friends i7 system. When I did the unofficial support it would crash when I made changes on AB 2.0 and the newest beta. I used ccc but was stuck at 1000MHz core on the 6870s.

Here are a few scores. One with 2 6870s and the other with one GTX 295 slightly oc'ed.

Hehehe 6950 CF would sound pretty nice... lets hope those 69XX bring some more awesomeness to the red team
No,check my score in my sig i get 33k with 5870 crossfire which is higher than a 6870 crossfire score.

Awesome...but benchmarks are used as an indication of a graphics cards power,well known and used by almost the entire of this forum.

I do understand that the 6870 has the advantage of being able to deal with tesselation in a lot better maner than the 5870 and thats where it has the edge.

If you where playing crysis or some other dx10 game the 5870 would be infront in terms of higher fps.

I'm still waiting on a decent crossfire review, where all cards use the same exact crossfire drivers and profiles and they clock the 5850 and 5870 at the same gpu/mem freq as the 6870.

Then and only then will we see if the 6870 is faster or not

Surely there is someone in here with an AMD965BE and a 6870 who will take up the challenge HERE and prove the 6870 is better then a 5850.

If the 6870 is such a great card as everyone in here is making out, then it should be an easy challenge to win. The fact that no one has taken up the challenge suggests that the 6870 is actually slower
