"MSI has gone all out with the R6850 Cyclone PE, promising improved performance and overclocking."
"If you are in the market for a good mid-range graphics card that is faster and runs cooler than a reference design, the MSI R6850 is worth a look. As far as 6850 cards go, MSI's Cyclone Power Edition / Overclocked Edition is currently the fastest offering available at Newegg. The factory overclock on this card is 40 MHz higher than any other offering and 85 MHz higher than AMD's stock clock. Furthermore there is plenty of headroom to push this card even further. I was able to squeeze another 100 MHz / 35 MHz out of the card without modifying voltages. This netted a decent performance gain in itself. Additionally I was able to volt mod the card and get another 33 MHz / 65 MHz, although performance gains from this weren't as impressive as I had hoped."
"Offering an already good card at a reasonable price to those that want it, as well as an insane value for those brave hearts that know and want that extra performance offered by the impressive overclocks offered here. If that’s not good enough then make a compromise. Buy two, call it $360, plop the cards into a beautiful Crossfire link and go to town with everything turned all the way up and frames to spare. MSI has brought this beast to the table. It’s time for an upgrade."
"The bottom line is, if you are looking for the quietest possible HD 6850 experience, then the price premium is worth $20. It is also reasonable if you are too lazy to do any overclocking yourself and just want a fast card out of the box. For willing overclockers, who can live with some fan noise, the $20 price increase seems a bit much, especially since MSI does save considerable money by using a cheaper VRM solution than on the reference design."
