Nice find cloud.

Here's guru3d's review:

Radeon HD 6850 & 6870 review

Incredible stuff going on folks, they managed to lower the power consumption, temps and fan noise, while still yielding a pretty darn good performance baseline (on line with GTX 470 and ~Radeon HD 5870 [in some cases]).

And all for $240.

Definitely on the bandwagon.

What are you talking about? Of course there is..... 6000 is better than 5000

Hmmm.... If the price stays under $270ish for the 6870 I may grab one. Was thinking about getting a 5870 but the price was keeping me away.

Well seeing that my 4890 is still getting the job done nicely, the 6870 is a low priority purchase for the time being.... meaning I have other stuff to get first.

But... if the price stays under 270ish, the priority could move up rather quickly (however you'll probably have yours before I purchase mine)

Well, most HD 6870's are going for $239.99 right about now.

That's significantly under $270 .

It's faster, consumes less power and produces less heat.

EDIT: Plus... DirectX11 hmmm yum yum.

I can't believe the XFX 6850 is only 199.99 That's insanely inexpensive.I paid well over that for my Evga GTX 260 Superclocked

I've always been a Nvidia Fan boy but with these kinds of prices it's kinda hard not to justify buying one or two of these if only my board supported crossfire.

Oh well I'll be doing a new build in the next 6 months so we'll see where we're at then.

so does these 6870's use 2x6 pins or no cause i recieved info you had to have dual 6 pins

If not please correct me cause i am prepared to buy a new psu on top of getting the card im thinking i will go newegg simply cause the xfx series is cheaper then in retail market by 50 bucks but i'll have to wait in see im thinking by first week in nov i will be getting my card

but it will really help if someone knew the actuall power requirments

and also i was looking at the asus card with a 50% voltage tweek i really don't know what that means im assuming it is already oc'ed anyhow i would like to know if anyone has gotten one or recieved it yet ? and how good does it feel
