I just got mine and they were brand new and sealed bro

Check his feedback, lots of people have gotten theirs as well as 460s and whatnot

Can i flash the bios on these 6850 1gb versions to 6870 as well? I might just buy 2 of them and flash them and be done with it.

I don't think so

I know some of the test samples were actually 6870s but I haven't heard of anyone doing them now

But all 6850s come with voltage control

Just up it a bit and you'll be past 1000 core

6850's are a waste of time, 5850's are faster in single and dual card set ups and in the UK atleast they're cheaper then 6850's.

Why pay more for less??

You must have missed out on all the benchmarks that have come out

Not only do they overclock like crazy, they scale nearly 100% in CF, use less power, run cooler and they kick the 5850s butt in DX11 and Tesselation

Good luck finding a new 5850 for $140

1. They hit the same core speeds a 5850 can do rolleyes.gif

2. They can scale all they want, Any crossfire review you read will show you 5850 cf >>> 6850cf

3. Cooler?, That's debatable....

4. Less power? Who cares, Most people have the power supply's to handle them and 5850's aint exactly power hungry cards anyway..

5. And don't bang on about crossfire scaling while you run 4 low power cards..
