AMD debuts Radeon HD 6970 and HD 6850 Graphic Cards
AMD has launched a pair of hardcore graphic cards which are based on the GPU originally codenamed ‘Brats’. The new Radeon HD 6870 and the Radeon HD 6850 are a part of the Radeon 6800 series and they are the first cards which will be using AMD’s second generation Directx 11 architecture.
The Radeon HD 6870 has a core clock speed of 900MHz while the Radeon HD 6850 is clocked at 775Mhz and both the graphics cards have 1GB of GDDR5 memory. I feel the offering is pretty neat and both the cards could be a good performing, low power consuming graphic cards which are really affordable.
Many gamers can enjoy the power of these graphic cards as the Radeon HD 6870 is priced at $239 MSRP and the Radeon HD 6850 is priced at just $179 MSRP.
