Sapphire Ultimate Radeon HD 6670 Graphics Card Review

GPU Assisted Media Conversion

As with the higher priced Radeon models the value orientated cards can be set to assist our processor when performing demanding tasks such as video encoding. The results below show how performance changes when we use the Sapphire GPU rather than Intel’s CPU on its own.

Our media encoding test takes a 4GB 1920×1080 file and converts it with the latest version of Cyberlink Media Expresso to iPad format with AMD GPU computing enabled.



Benchmark Results


In this test we can see the benefits of including a 6670 card in our test system; it enhances the performance of when encoding video and even in our short test drops 11seconds off the time taken to convert the video to iPad format.
