Product Highlights

  • $499 MSRP

  • 40nm Cypress Core / 2.15Bn Transistors

  • DirectX 11 / Open GL 4.0 / OpenCL 1.0

  • 850Mhz Core with 1600 Stream Processors

  • 2.72 TFLOPS Compute Performance

Straddling the line between Enthusiast and Ultra Enthusiast, the ATI HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 2GB edition has several strengths. Primarily the extra gigabyte of GDDR 5, but also the extra power - unlike the reference ATI Radeon HD 5870 1GB, the Eyefinity 6 2GB edition cards sport an 8-pin and a 6-pin PCIe power connector. Will this benefit overclockers and high dollar enthusiasts? Let's take a look.
