XFX obviously chose to prioritise temperatures when it was calibrating its cooler. While you can correct this manually to reduce noise levels in load, this won’t reduce the prohibitive price of this non-overclocked model that is delivered without any...

A very noisy cooling solution and basic overall performance make the XFX Radeon HD 6850 a difficult pill to swallow....

The HD 6850 overall is a very impressive card, the performance figures hovers around the 5850 in some tests. However, keep in mind the 6850 was not made to replace the 5850, but rather the 5830. Also, the card does brilliantly in the facets of power...

Every year ATI and NVIDIA release new video cards for the high-end, the mainstream and the value segments. It is a constant struggle with new chips being designed and released. Generally AMD has released a new architecture every two years with a...

XFX a visiblement fait le choix des températures lors de la calibration de son ventirad. S’il est possible de corriger cela manuellement pour réduire les nuisances sonores en charge, cela ne réduira pas le prix prohibitif de ce modèle non-overclocké et...
