AMD Radeon HD 6870 and 6850 - Barts Architecture Refresh
Posted by newsbot on October 22nd 2010



AMD was likely losing ground in the $200 segment and becauseof that felt the need to get a reply out sooner than its originalschedule had intended. That is good news for gamers:now we havebetter, lower cost options from AMD and also a forced hand from NVIDIAthat caused a price drop on the GTX 460 lineup. If I was given a $220budget today and asked to pick between the AMD or NVIDIA options, Iwould probably lean towards the AMD HD 6870 if only for the triplemonitor support; other users might value the ability to run some sortof 3D Vision gaming and PhysX titles better on the NVIDIA cards. Itis a cop-out, but all of these cards are good options.
