Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 Flex Edition Review: Three Times The Treats

The Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 Flex Edition 1GB is the best card to get for anyone looking for the flexibility of DualPort graphics and the integration of DVI standards for the TDMS streams capable to also transmit over HDMI. The Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 Flex Edition 1GB video card is affordable, runs incredibly well, and maintains a level of quality for future-oriented people who do not want to upgrade that is exceptional.

The Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 Flex Edition 1GB tested extremely well as the HD 6870, providing the same 900Mhz clock rate along with the 1GB of onboard video RAM to make for a terrific gaming experience. Benchmarks through FutureMark suite and PassMark revealed numbers that rivaled other cards comparing to the GTX 480 by performing a solid 10-15 fps higher in games such as RIFT and more.

To get straight to the point, for sake of brevity in repeating a 6870 review, the Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 Flex Edition 1GB offers a few different things. It gives gamers and hardcore graphics enthusiasts the 6000 feature set along with the support for the five monitors. The DisplayPorts allow for 2 monitors, while the HDMI and 2 DVI (Single-Link-D + Dual Link-I) gives consumers the flexibility for larger screens to manage their workflow. In terms of this angle, that is all the 6870 Flex does. It is certainly not a setup for gamers in any way that makes it more special than the 6870 normal editions, so if you are looking to game on 3-5 monitors, forget it. Sapphire has definitely established that they know what they are doing, and giving consumers flexibility not just in the home but also in the workplace. There is no need for dual single-core GPU’s or Quad-SLI for this setup. You can have it with AMD, on one card, at an incredible price.
