XFX Radeon HD 6850 Black Edition (Dual Fan) Review

Over the last month or so we have taken a look at numerous cards from the Radeon 6800 series. From the reference cards to enhanced models we have seen a number of different takes on AMDs solid base design. Like many of the other manufacturers XFX were quick to bring an enhanced card to the market, announcing their Black Edition early on in the 6800 lifecycle and producing a small number of cards based on the higher specifications. That card wasn’t up to the standard we have come to expect from XFX though, essentially being an overclocked version of their reference card, so it was only a matter of time before they released a card which would stand out against competitor models.

In the next few days stock of the revised XFX Radeon HD 6850 Black Edition will be landing at a store near you and today we have one of the very first samples on our test bench. With a brand new dual fan cooler and factory overclock can it compete with a top of the range GTX 460? We will find out as it is put through a selection of real world tests which include Black Ops, F1 2010, Blu-Ray 3D and GPU computing.
