ColorFire reveals highly overclockable Xstorm HD 6850

Posted on Friday, March 11 2011 @ 23:38:31 CET by

ColorFire introduced the Xtorm HD 6850, a new card with 4+1 phase VRM, high-grade chokes, POSCAP capacitors, dual-BIOS, OCP unlock switches, voltage-measure points, and a cooling solution with three heatpipes and a single large fan.

The card seems to overclock pretty well, a Chinese overclocker used it to break the 3DMark Vantage record for the Radeon HD 6850:
Shortly after its introduction, the ColorFire team led by overclocker Carl from China was able to break a 3DMark Vantage record for the Radeon HD 6850. The overclocker achieved P27751 points, some 3810 points ahead of the previous record-holder. The card sustained overclocked speeds of 1500 MHz core and 1275 MHz (5100 MHz GDDR5 effective) memory, and backed by an Intel Core i7-980X clocked at 5.7 GHz, with the entire setup being cooled by liquid nitrogen.
