Sapphire Round-up: Radeon 6950 fleX, Radeon 6870 fleX, Radeon 5850 Xtreme and Radeon 5830 Xtreme featuring Sapphire X58 Pure Black Motherboard Review

Sapphire Roundup April 2011 featuring:
Radeon HD 6950 fleX, Radeon HD 6870 fleX, Radeon HD 5850 Xtreme, Radeon HD 5830 Xtreme and the Sapphire X58 Pure Black Motherboard


Over the past couple of months Sapphire has been adding a number of interesting products to their range of GPUs. That started with two new Flex models, the 6870 and 6950 and continued a few days ago with the launch of the Xtreme 5850 and 5830 which bring Radeon 5000 series cards up to date at a very competitive price point.

With new 4 cards launched from £80 to £250 we have a bunch of products which are ideal for a roundup to see what we, the consumers, get at each price point. Which of the latest games can each play and are any of them suitable for gaming at 5760x1080. We will answer those questions today as well as looking at media playback and GPU computing performance... all while running on Sapphires X58 Pure Black Motherboard and a Core i7-990X CPU.
