Sapphire Radeon Toxic HD 6870 1GB GDDR5 Review: Page 6 of 8

IF you are looking for an HD 6870 for your system, the Sapphire Toxic Edition is a solid player in the game, excellent cooling, performance and overclocking abound. By Elric Phares


Lost Planet 2 is one of the newest games released to support DirectX 11 features such as Tessellation. This game is the sequel to one of the first DirectX 10 games and plays very well on the HD 6870 card. The game is almost fully playable at 8x FSAA and 16x AF at 1650x1080 on the HD 6870 and fully playable with 4x FSAA 16x AF on the game at 1920x1200. Black Ops looked awesome as well and played great at all resolutions, even though its not the latest DX title, it still just looks killer.

Aliens Versus Predator is a based upon a movie and comic franchise of the same name. You can take the role of the Exomorph, the Predator or a Colonial Marine in this game that was one of the first to support DirectX 11 features such as Tessellation. It’s fully playable on the Sapphire Toxic HD 6870 with 1920x1200 resolution and 8x FSAA 16x AF playable. Mafia 2 although known to be a more NVIDIA friendly game still played fine and loooed good as well.
