Radeon HD 6870 compatibility review

Overall, the AMD Radeon HD 6870 has good performance. This is perfectly acceptable for a mid-range dedicated graphics card. This graphics card is now over 7 years old, which means it is extremely out of date and is based on very aged technologies. The driver support for the AMD Radeon HD 6870 is now fairly poor, so don't count on any new game optimizations. You may also encounter more and more graphical oddities as newer games are released.

With an effective SPU count of 504, the AMD Radeon HD 6870 processes shading and special graphical effects with no trouble at all. The GPU is quite power-hungry at 151 Watts, however.
