VTX3D HD6870 X2 Review

Rating: 8.0.

Not many people were expecting the HD6870 X2 when it was initially announced. Powercolor have been one of the key players behind the launch and we highlighted some pictures from Computex a while ago. Today we are looking at the VTX3D version of the card. For those of you who haven’t yet heard, Vertex3D are the ‘price aggressive’ brand from TUL Corporation, the parent company of Powercolor.

The HD6870X2 has 2240 stream processing units and 4.03 teraflops of computing power, with a core clock of 900mhz and GDDR5 memory set at 1050mhz. The card uses high end Heat Pipe Direct Touch (HDT) Technology, with 6 pieces of flattened heat pipes which directly cover the GPU. They claim 50 times better heat dissipation than a copper base.
