ASUS HD 6870 DirectCU Graphics Card Review

As is normal for an AMD launch initial versions of the 6870, which was released in October, followed the reference design with the only real difference being the cooler artwork used. In the time since then we have seen various manufacturers begin to release their own versions of the 6870, some with enhanced coolers and others with a tweaked design and overclock. There are of course a few manufacturers who we always look out for in this post launch period, those who have excelled with their custom designs in the past and one such company is ASUS.

Today on our test bench we have the result of ASUS’ work on enhancing the 6870 design. The Radeon EAH6870 DirectCU is a factory overclocked model which claims to run cooler than the reference model and certainly looks different. We will be running it through a selection of real world tests to find out how it performs in gaming, multimedia and GPU computing tasks. These include Blu-Ray 3D, Stereoscopic 3D gaming and the latest releases such as Black Ops and H.A.W.X. 2.
