We've recently presented the first of AMD's latest-gen graphics cards. That was Radeon HD 6850, and although they were officially presented the same day, the stronger model took a while to get to us. As we've already stated, the new...

All this performance comes at a price, and with Asus, that price is a little more than it should be. The EAH6870 is priced at Rs. 17,500 excluding taxes, which straightaway makes it pricey. While it is 10-15% faster in most games as compared to the...

As the floodgates opened up for the AMD HD 6870 graphics card, ASUS also followed the market with the introduction of the EAH6870. Being ASUS, this card was not going to be released with just the reference settings, so while it looks the same as a...

The ASUS EAH6870 is a great product and a great value. Performance-wise, it is in-line with other Radeon HD 6870s and on-par with the competing GeForce GTX 470. In terms of efficiency, it is a far better choice than the GeForce GTX 470. For roughly...

When I recently became aware of the HD6000 series' imminent release, I was initially expecting a significant change like we saw with the evolution from the HD3000 to the HD4000 to the HD5000 series. While you won't be met with a true gaming...

There's quite a bit of information to process with the launch of the 6800 cards, but there are a few major ones to note. The first is that the 6870 technically isn't a successor to the 5870, even though we saw the performance is almost...

De ASUS EAH6870/2DI2S/1GD5 is één van de twee Radeon HD 6870 kaarten in deze test die hardwarematig in feite 100% identiek zijn aan AMD's referentiekaart. Het enige wat verklapt dat we met een ASUS-model van toen hebben zijn de letters, ASUS bovenop...

Kort og greit kan vi med en gang si at Radeon HD 6870 er et meget godt tilskudd i markedet. Skjermkortet leverer så absolutt god ytelse, det er effektgjerrig, det byr på lave temperaturer og det er stillegående. Best av alt er det kanskje...
