ASUS puts a bit of an overclock on their HD6870

Subject: Graphics Cards | November 16, 2010 - 02:43 PM |

It has been a good quarter for graphics enthusiasts as we have seen major releases from both GPU manufacturers in amongst the many other hardware updates that companies are getting in before the end of the year.  [H]ard|OCP had a chance to test out ASUS' first HD6870 card, one that comes with the same cooling solution but with a 15MHz GPU overclock bringing the frequency to 915MHz.  That overclock doesn't add much to the performance but you will be pleased to know that it adds nothing to the price whatsoever, something very different from most factory overclocked cards.  Check out and see what [H] thought of this card as a competitor to the GTX470 here.

"ASUS is out of the gate with its first AMD Radeon HD 6870 based video card, the EAH6870/2DI2S/1GD5. It features a modest

overclock with no price premium, but can it compete with the newly inexpensive GeForce GTX 470? We'll find out with the help of

five of today's newest and hottest games."
