AMD Radeon HD 6850 review
As keen as we were to check out the Radeon HD , after working with a number of dual-GPU Radeon generations we knew we weren't in for a big surprise. This extra power does come at a price, however, as it's also quite noisy and guzzles loads of Featuring enhanced heat dissipation with dual vapor But with massive power comes a massive price tag And there you have it, the world's fastest graphics card for now.
Truth be told, Nvidia will surely be prepping a dual-GPU response of its own, so even the well-heeled gamer shouldn't dive headlong just yet. Of course, therein lies the rub of Since the The high power demands translate into a need for cooling, which we hope AIBs will fine-tune over the coming months.
The stage has been set for a battle royal when the This two-headed beast of a card was too unpredictable in our tests to justify its equally monstrous price Unprecedented gaming performance, but it comes with the expected noise, high power consumption and a jaw-dropping price In creating the AMD set themselves the goal of exceeding every single PCB graphics card on the market, including their own which was the fastest product available on a single PCIe 16x slot.
The product that is being released as a result of Editors Didn't Like Very loud fan noise under load 5x1 portrait mode has limited driver support High price Bulky size Signifacant noise level in 3D mode Low energy efficiency in power saving modes Performance depends on the driver Limited warranty Supports less GPGPU accelerated software than the competitors Very expensive.
But where does the smart money go? A lot can happen in twenty-four hours. And indeed a genre-shifting amount has come to pass since yesterday in the frenetic world of graphics cards. AMD then launched its and , quickly followed by a similar slashing of its pricing. For this reason we've held off on our review until now, as we're sure that the dust is finally starting to settle. Codenamed Barts Pro, the 's core has stream processors, running at MHz.

The fact that AMD can run this core at higher clock speeds is due to a smaller die-size, mm2 as opposed to the mm2 found on the previous generation. You do get the full 32 ROPS mind, plus a slightly overhauled tessellation engine that improves performance at the more reasonable tessellation factors.
The interesting thing here is that it uses DirectCompute to process the full scene after it has been rendered, to produce results similar to 4x MSAA but faster and at a reduced memory footprint. There have been some improvements to the anistropic filtering engine too to smooth the transition between different levels of detail to reduce the effects of stepping. You can expect card manufacturers to produce overclocked, non-reference design versions from the get-go too.

Against Better value cards exist Reduced shader count Relatively slow clock speed. As ever, it all comes down to money. It needs to pull some serious magic out of its svelte silicon to compete there. Subtle improvements then, but improvements all the same.
You'll need a single six-pin power cable for this dual-slot card, and you're good to go.

As I've moved into heroics I've found myself gearing a little heavier towards stamina, but as I replace gear with heroic versions I'll likely migrate back towards mastery. Alot of bosses that risk downing tanks usually involve some sort of burst damage. Zon'ozz Psychic Drain. I went from about 27 to Now if only the Soulshifter Vortex procced mastery in a more controlled fashion Went for stoneskin garg runeforge as well.
Guess I'm kinda in the middle of everything but seems to work. Originally Posted by Illana. Originally Posted by xtramuscle. I can teach you how to play, but I can't fix stupid.

Not even close". And yes, Soulshifter is hilariously funny when you take impales on madness taking 0 damage or tank LFR Zon'ozz on a single bone shield cast I gem pure mastery, I'm at I was running with a mix of both mastery and avoidance gems, but it seems that only going for mastery is more popular so I'll give it a try. I'm still rocking the Rune of Swordshattering, I remember reading a while ago that with DS Rune of the Stoneskin gargoyle would be more beneficial since it scales while the previous one doesn't.
