Sapphire Radeon HD 6670 Ultimate 1GB Video Card Review

Final Thoughts


While I feel that the "Ultimate" tag might be used a little loosely here, the performance of the model it's implemented on doesn't come as a surprise as we know that the "Ultimate" series does indeed refer to the passive cooled series of cards from Sapphire.


When it comes to the overall performance of the model, there's again no real surprise when you look at the FPS. It's a HD 6670 that carries with it stock clocks and as you'd expect, the performance is the same as you'd get from really any other HD 6670 that carries with it the same clocks and a traditional fan cooler.


Where the card shines, though, is of course in the cooling department. Sapphire are offering us a card here that's able to play games like Far Cry 2, Batman AA, Street Fighter IV, Resident Evil 5 and other games based on the Steam engine like Portal 2 and Counter Strike to name just a few.


If you're looking at cards like the HD 6800 or HD 6900 series, you'll of course find yourself disappointed with the performance that's on offer here. On the other hand, if you're looking for something that's around the $100 US mark then you'll be very happy with what you're seeing, especially in the instance you're looking for something silent.


Throw in the fact that the card offers us great temperatures and this is an excellent solution for people who want something that's priced well, going to play older games at a smooth 60 FPS resolution at the least 1680 x 1050, and would love to have something that's completely silent.


While the Sapphire HD 6670 Ultimate might not be for everyone, those who are looking for a card that can do the above are going to really appreciate the offering from Sapphire.
