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.

 

No real surprises when it comes to the cards we're looking at in our graphs here today. We've of course got the HD 6870 Black Edition from XFX; we've also got reference versions of the HD 6850, HD 6870 and HD 6950. while also having the MSI GTX 560 Ti in for good measure.

 

Let's get started!

Starting off with 3DMark 11, we can see a nice boost in performance when compared with the reference clocked card and just overall some good performance.
