HIS HD 6870 Turbo 1GB Video Card Review

Rating: 9.0.

KitGuru has already reviewed many AMD HD6800 series cards and we have been impressed with the competitive pricing and mid range performance. The GTX460 dominated the market for many weeks but AMD finally stepped up to the plate.

Today we are going to look at the new HIS HD6870 Turbo Edition Card, which while featuring the same reference AMD cooling system, is supplied with modest overclocks. None of the leading manufacturers have yet to release a custom cooled HD6870, so it looks as if we will have to wait a while longer.

Many overclocked cards are hand picked from the production line to ensure that RMA’s don’t prove to be an issue long term.
