Quoted from AMD Radeon HD 6870 Reviews:
Check out these quotes from AMD Radeon HD 6870 reviews & previews
"This is AMD's first self-branded video card, retiring nearly twenty years of ATI brand name recognition, so while it's done well to demonstrate modest mainstream performance capabilities there are still a few green areas. I'm not convinced the Radeon HD 6870 is going to impress consumers with improved Eyefinity support or added stereoscopic 3D functionality until these technologies become more mature, but thankfully the Radeon HD 6870 shines as a solid gaming product."
"Overall the Radeon HD 6870 has proven to be an excellent graphics card for the money. At just $239 US there is nothing that offers this kind of performance. Before the Radeon HD 6870 we were raving about the GeForce GTX 460 (1GB) graphics card in the $200 - $350 US price range, but with around 20% more performance on average, the Radeon HD 6870 has really stepped things up a notch."
"With the HD 6870/6850, consumers can now enjoy high-end Cypress gaming power for a fraction of the price."
"The new Radeon R9 270X is on average a massive 78 percent quicker than the Radeon HD 6870, which makes this conclusion a no-brainer. Upgrading from the HD 6870 to a Radeon R9 270X is an all reasonable descision. Lots of games will become playable again. If you consider that reference R9 270X cards are sold at about 160 Euro these days, and if you then keep in mind, that you'll easily get 50 Euro for your old Radeon HD 6870, when you have to invest about 110 Euro to buy a card, that let's you play most games at high resolutions."
"Overclocking was decent and it is fairly silent even under load, something you have to consider though is that this uses more power which means it will cost you a bit more in the long run in electricity bill."
