XFX Radeon HD 6870 Black Edition Review

Recommended Posts

Curious on how it would do with more volts!

 

Push it to 1.3 and OC some more :).

I have the early version of the XFX HD6870 Black edition card with just one fan. I'm using it in a little ASRock N68-S UCC board with a dual core Calisto CPU at 3.0GHz. The system has 4GB of DDR2-800 RAM in it and a 750GB platter drive. It works well enough without any OC, but now I guess I'll have to bump it up a bit and try it that way. Thanks for the review.

I'm looking at either the XFX 6870 dual-fan and the XFX 6870 Black Edition dual-fan video cards.

 

There is a big enough difference in price right now to consider the question.

 

Can I overclock the 6870 dual-fan around the same numbers as the 6870 Black dual-fan ?

 

Does the Black Edition have something special that enables it to overclock a little bit higher ?
