MSI Radeon HD 6850 Cyclone 1GB Power Edition Video Card 99 | TweakTown.com

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're looking at today is the kind of performance gain we get from the HD 6850 Cyclone Power Edition from MSI against the reference Sapphire version we first looked at when the card launched.

We've of course included a number of other single cards in our benchmarks, though, which include the AMD HD 6870, Sapphire HD 5870 and GIGABYTE GTX 480.

Let's get started!
