Short Graphics Card Review

What's up guys? I recently got my new graphics card, a Sapphire Radeon HD 6850. I am very pleased with this card.
The drivers were easy to setup, and using the Sapphire TRIXX utility, I overclocked it to 850MHz core clock and 1100MHz memory clock from 775/1000.

I am getting very good frames with this card, here are some benchmarks I did.

Skryim: 1920x1080 Maxed out 45-60FPS
Battlefield 3: 1920x1080 High-Ultra 2xAA 30-45 FPS
Fallout 3:  1920x1080 Maxed out 60FPS steady
Bastion: Maxed out 60FPS steady
Minecraft: 130-150 FPS

This is a very good card, I have not gotten any crashes or any major lag spikes, everything has been great, I am running games like a dream.

I highly recommend this card as it beats out anything in the $150 range, but if you can afford the 6870 I'd go for that.

  1. I wish I could by that card, but I already bought a 6790 before prices went down.
