Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 1GB Video Card Review

Posted on Friday, October 22 2010 @ 11:11:24 CEST by

The HD 6000 series is a big deal. It’s not just because it’s a new generation of cards, but it’s also the end of an era. The HD 6000 series ultimately marks the end of the ATI name; instead we’ll be using the AMD name hereon. We get the feeling that AMD are off to a bit of a shakey start when it comes to this series, as the naming has caused some confusion out the gate.

Before we get into everything, let’s talk about what exactly the HD 6850 is and what it’s replacing and going to compete against. While the name might suggest it’s the successor to the HD 5850, the product is instead designed to replace the HD 5700 series. What’s interesting, though, is that while the HD 5800 and HD 5900 series will be discontinued over the coming months as their replacements come out, AMD seem to be keeping the HD 5700 series around.
