We would like to thank the following companies for supplying and supporting us with our test system hardware and equipment: Intel, ASRock, Kingston, Mittoni, Noctua and Corsair.
The main thing we'll be looking at is the kind of performance increase we get from the HIS HD 6850 1GB IceQ X Turbo compared against just a reference HD 6850 1GB that carries with it the reference clock speeds.
We've also got the HD 6870, HD 5870 and GTX 480 all for good measure.
Let's get started!
