Moving on to the graphics cards the range of products tested today tells us that Sapphire offer an excellent level of performance from £80 upwards. The 5830 lets us game at 1920x1080 with high detail without issue, the 5850 and 6870 give us a little...

When it’s all said and done the HD6870 Flex performs just like any other HD6870 short of one important feature, Eyefinity. If you hope to run Eyefinity now or later without picking up a costly adapter (between 30 and 100), the Flex is most...

It's not too often that a non-reference card brings more than just a unique cooler or an overclock to the table, but the FleX from Sapphire brings something no other Radeon HD 6870 does... a built-in DisplayPort converter. Because of this small...

Sapphire has made a great habit out of taking the AMD Radeon chips one step further. This has been the case with each video card we review from them. In the case of the FleX Edition Radeon HD 6870, we no longer have to venture out to retrieve an...

Sapphire has created a truly innovative product here. The 6870 FleX has the one of the best temperatures of any 6870 we've seen, second only to the Sapphire Vapor-X version. The FleX also runs quieter than most of the other cards as well, not to...

Sapphire really has a nice video card with the Radeon HD 6870 Flex Edition. The ease of use is just too good to be true. My benchmark setup even deviated from something that would be considered "conventional". I mean, I took my living room TV and used...
