Radeon HD 6870 DirectCU 1GB Edition compatibility review

Overall, the AMD Radeon HD 6870 DirectCU 1GB Edition has good performance. This is perfectly acceptable for a mid-range dedicated graphics card. This graphics card is now over 9 years old, which means it is extremely out of date and is based on very aged technologies.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 DirectCU 1GB Edition 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 512, the AMD Radeon HD 6870 DirectCU 1GB Edition processes shading and special graphical effects with no trouble at all. The GPU is quite power-hungry at 225 Watts, however.
