PowerColor HD6870 Eyefinity 6 Edition CrossfireX Review

Rating: 9.0.

KitGuru has reviewed many AMD HD6870 graphics cards in 2011, but today we are looking at something very special, the Powercolor HD 6870 Eyefinity 6 Edition graphics card.

This particular board is supplied with a custom heatpipe cooler, 6 mini DisplayPorts and an additional 1GB of memory to ensure that performance is strong at very high, multi screen resolutions.

This card is based around a Barts XT GPU with 1120 stream processors. The core is clocked to 900mhz and the 2GB of GDDR5 memory is paired up with a 256 bit memory interface which runs at an effective 4200mhz.

Those of you who dislike reference cooling solutions will be pleased to see that this particular edition is cooled by Powercolor’s dual slot heatpipe solution, which is meant to offer better cooling performance while reducing the noise levels.
