    great review H, in the bar graph could you change the colours it hard to tell the difference between the shade of blue sometimes if they where i.e red, blue, green it would be alot easier or where it says 6850msi/6850/6870 could the colour boxes be a bit bigger

    Haven't seen such an ugly designed card since...

    5970... Those colors... That plastic hub... Looks just like some cheap little girls' toy...

    Im pretty sure I see an error on that graph, should the overclocked MSI not be a 6850 not a 6870 , maybe I'm reading it wrong.
    Besides that. That card looks impressive, I wounder how far you could overclock a 6870 MSI
    One more thing to add article said it had a better cooler, but does it have better thermal paste, if i put some article silver on that cooler would i be able to go further?

    Yeah your right Erqury, there is a little error with msi6850/6870 on page 19 in the graphic. But still a great review again!

    Impresive gains from overclocking.

    I'd like some voltage overclocking benchs of HD6870.

    GPU Voltage tweaking for 6870 is not yet ready guys. Hopefully we'll have implemented it next week in AfterBurner.

    Can't wait for some custom 6870s to be released.

    I know for sure Sapphire Trixxx can mod voltage on HD6870.

    It would be very nice to see what it does ;)

    Yeah but Sapphire sucks balls.

    Anyway, we have a working internal beta for 6870 V support. Needs a little more fine-tuning before the public beta is ready. Won't be much longer.
