Default The Official HD 6000 Series Review thread

I think this is the first reviews...I'm looking forward to seeing how the 69xx perform.

Nice looking cards if you ask me they will go well with my Raven 01.

In stock and ready to ship, I hope its the same with the high end.

I'm impressed with the Xfire scaling.

Thought this card would be closer to the 5870 but really it's closer to the 5850, kinda disappointing.

I think most of the articles and reviews state that this is transitioning to the middle and the new 69xx cards will be the high-end.

Looking at some reviews, such as HardOCP with in-game, it seems these new cards perform pretty well for the segment/money, especially when factoring in power-draw and temps.

I think right now if you are going for a $200 video card, unless you have a serious reason to be in NVIDIA's camp, there is no competition for the 6850, even factoring in the price drops on the GTX 470. If the performance delta between the 6800 and the 6900 cards is comparable to the performance delta between the last generation's 5700 and 5800 series, the high end 6900s will offer some serious oomph.

And it does 3D.

Apparently according to Rollo, it's the greatest technology EVER.

Any ETA on when the big-boy cards come out? And if/when Nvidia's cards are expected?

Well, 3D Vision Surround is pretty sweet. And AMD's solution still only "supports 3D." There's no all-in-one solution for 3D on AMD cards like 3D Vision. You still need to rely on third party hardware and drivers to give you 3D on AMD.

Holy crap!

I'm eyein' the 6850 - however I like the 6870 as well. I think that would be just a bit too far out of my power envelope. I could justify the 6850 though cause not only is the idle draw way low, but so is the load. And it'd be a nice, *very* nce, performance boost over my current 5770- which I'm already satisfied with.

Think I'll wait a few weeks and see what inventory/prices do. But likely, I'll be having my self a 6850 before too long.

these new naming schemes are pretty lame..

they really should have kept the same structure and gone 6750/6770..

Anyway based on these results, i am looking forward to see what the 69xx series brings to the table .
