Reference clocked cards but a custom designed HD 6850

Together with the rest of the AMD AIB partners, XFX has also launched its own Radeon HD 6870 and Radeon HD 6850 cards. Both of the cards feature reference clocks and bring support for DirectX 11, AMD's Crossfire and Eyefinity.

XFX made sure that you know what card is in your system by launching a custom designed card with in-house cooling and a unique XFX backplate. Not only that, but XFX's 6850 comes with 100% Japanese capacitors.

The XFX HD 6870 works at 900MHz for the GPU and 4200MHz for 1GB of GDDR5 memory. It comes with a reference dual slot blower-fan cooler. The XFX HD 6850 also works at reference 775MHz for the GPU and 4000MHz for 1GB of GDDR5 memory. As noted, both cards feature a rather unique backplate as XFX decided to replace the stock exhaust grill with XFX logo.

The HD 6870 is selling with a suggested price tag set at US $279.99, while the HD 6850 has a suggested price tag set at US $219.99.
