Over the past few weeks we have taken a look at the cards from the NVIDIA stable - the GTX 470 and the GTX 580 which were both amazing cards in their own right and achieved high scores in our tests. But now it's time to take a look at the Red side, AMD's. They recently launched the 6800 Series of GPUs and XFX was kind enough to send us one. The AMD HD 6850 is based on the ‘Barts’ core and in comparison to previous generations offers improved tessellation, eyefinity and performance.

In terms of connectivity options, the XFX HD 6850 has two DVI-D ports along with one Displayport 1.2 and one HDMI 1.4a port. On the other end of the card; we have a single 6-pin PCIe connector that takes care of all its power needs.
The XFX 6850 uses a 40nm process, which is the same as the 5800 series, but at a smaller die size (255mm2). The GPU is clocked at 775MHz, while the 1GB GDDR5 memory clocks in at 1000MHz.
