HIS is the vga of all vga!!!

October 29th, 2010 at 07:29 pm By Myko

Great card price-performance ratio. This HIS version came with everything I needed, and even a case badge!

October 29th, 2010 at 07:27 pm By Myko

I bought 2 of these from HIS. One for my friend, and one for me. He decided to get a powercolor 6870 too a second crossfire card. It didn't come with any connectors, cables, or driver cds! The card even failed on the second day he used it, and he couldn't get a refund! HIS is the best company to buy graphics cards and accesories. They offer great deals and rebates, in addition to every card looking sleek, and having great cooling!

HIS has won over 1000 awards with ATI graphic solution from major media worldwide.

"The Radeon HD 6870 goes well for all tested games in the highest resolutions and detail levels.The overclocking potential of the card is good, after all, we get 75 MHz more than with the PowerColor HD 687" Radeon3D "Price Performance Award"

"This card really surprised me in the end. I offer great performance for the price.... This card really targets the average gamer that wants to get real performance without spending next month’s rent money to get it." - Gamers' Daily New "Gold Award"

"For HIS HD 6870 1GB GDDR5, this also forces parties to available at all offline game today.  DX11 Tessellation was developed stronger than ever obvious." - Vmodtech "Best Performance" & "Best Innovation"

"Definitely HIS 6870 is the more interesting card. It does have a handful more shader processors over what we expected initially, and armed with a phat 900 MHz clock frequency this product simply makes really good sense." Guru3D "Recommended Product"

"Offering highly accurate performance for this price, the HD 6870 is an interesting place in the nomenclature of AMD coming to harm the GTX 460 1GB and nearly matching the GTX 470." - Centrale 3D "Gold Award"

CustomPC

"All the cards were quiet when idle and audible rather than loud when working hard .We' d therefore optfortheHIS HD 68701GB ,asit's the cheapest ."- CustomPC "Highest scores"

"Across the benchmarks the jump in performance is around ten per cent... We’d certainly plump for the HD 6870 1GB over the GTX 470 1,280MB despite the latter's slightly superior performance, thanks in majority to the HD 6870 1GB’s lower power consumption and un-intrusive non-nuclear cooler" - Bit-Tech.net "Recommended Product"

“The AMD Radeon HD 6870 … positioned … against the GeForce GTX 460 1GB … in our testing it blew it away. The Radeon HD 6870 comes in-between the 5850 and 5870 in performance, but the kicker is that it is much cheaper, runs cooler, and uses less power doing it. We think it is most impressive that the Radeon HD 6870 is using 25% less silicon, less transistors, lower power and temperatures compared to Radeon HD 5850, yet providing slightly faster performance! The 6800 series video cards are the fastest power friendly video cards we’ve ever seen and this is the most performance we've ever seen in this power envelope. AMD is now offering the highest performance ever seen at lower price points. In regards to the 6870, if you currently own a GTX 460 1GB then the 6870 is a major upgrade in performance. Any way you slice it, the current Radeon HD 6850 and Radeon HD 6870 offerings are stellar deals. Better performance, lower prices, lower power, lower temps, and just a really good gameplay experience! The Radeon HD 6850 is the best sub-$200 performance we’ve ever seen, and the lowest power envelope we’ve ever seen it at.” HardOCP "Gold Award"

“AMD has the better product as far as I'm concerned. I'm stoked about this launch for a couple of reasons, the main one being the $/FPS ratio. One of the largest bonuses of AMD's recent cards to me has been power consumption. There's just no comparison. The HD 6870's TDP is 151W, and based on our testing, that seems about right.NVIDIA requires gamers to use two of its cards for multi-monitor gaming, so the fact that AMD continues to let gamers purchase an affordable card and power three monitors off of it is fantastic.” - Techgage "Editior's Choice"

“The new Radeon HD 6800 series cards performed very well throughout our entire battery of tests. Generally speaking, the Radeon HD 6870 performs about on par with the GeForce GTX 470. We also witnessed excellent dual-GPU scaling when running the new Radeon HD 6800 cards in CrossFire mode. One word aptly describes AMD's latest Radeon HD 6800 series GPUs: refinement. To that end we'd say the company has succeeded masterfully. Gamers can enjoy virtually all the performance, but with lower power consumption and better support for DX11 features like tessellation and seemingly better multi-GPU scaling. What we're looking at here with the Radeon HD 6800 series is a smaller, more efficient graphics engine, pushing higher clock speeds and throughput from less silicon area. It's a great foundation to build from actually." - Hothardware.com "Recommended"

"The higher frequencies and the different architecture optimizations are here to counterbalance that. Furthermore, the new tesselation unit is also a success and in the benchmarks the do better than the 5870 !  The 6870 is really here and announced the new card is allready the best choice in this price range. Not only for the performance/price/consumption ratio but also for the features with UVD 3 and EyeFinity. For all this reasons, we gave a gold award to the Radeon HD 6870 a fantastic anwser fo the only really valuable cards of the chameleon brand." - Comptoir Hardware "Gold Award"


"The HD6870 is a clear performance leader and development team who have managed to achieve high levels of scaling under Crossfire conditions. In our testing the HIS HD6870 was always at the top of the pack, sometimes leading the way, and on occasion just slightly behind the overclocked GTX460 SLI configurations...We like this card, the pricing is good and performance out of the box is killer. While it isn’t breaking new performance records, it is able to handle overclocked GTX460′s while offering excellent scaling in CrossFireX if you fancy an upgrade later." KitGuru - "Must Have Award"


"Unquestionably both the HIS HD6850 and HIS HD6870 comfortably beat the cards they are intended to replace. The HD6850 is on a par with the HD5830 and the HD6870 conclusively is at the top of all of our tests. Mid-range cards are something we've always loved...Overclocking enabling huge performance increases for zero cost." - Overclock 3D "Bronze Award"

"If you need one takeaway from the introduction of the Radeon HD 6850 and HD 6870, it should be this: the new GPUs offer everything the Radeon 5000-series do, and they add the cherry on top with extra features" - HEXUS "Recommended Product"

"In this case we compared Radeona HD 6870 1GB to company overlocked GeForce GTX 460 1GB OC 800MHz/1000MHz, because both cards cost quite the same. Advantage of Radeona HD 6870 was very clear, Radeon won in 11 from 14 games in 1680x1050and in 10 from 14 games in 1920x120, having adequately on average 10% and 13% better results than the competitor." - In4.pl "Recommended"

"HIS's architectural improvements have not been to the core architecture.  Another field of advancement is the display output logic which has been expanded on again, giving AMD even more margin against NVIDIA here. Support for DisplayPort 1.2 allows up to six displays connected to a single card and enables daisy chaining and hub functionality for easier monitor hook up.HDMI 1.4 includes support for Blu-ray 3D titles which seems to be more of a features list bullet point than a real need-to-have feature at this time.  Nice performance increase in this price segment" - TechpowerUp " Recommended Award"

Becnhmark Reviews

 

“There were a few tests that matched the Radeon HD 6870 with the GeForce GTX 470, and then there were tests that pegged it against the 1GB GeForce GTX 460. Most times it required a heavily overclocked GTX 460 to find similar competition....occasionally competes with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470, and easily outperforms the 1GB GTX 460. Radeon HD 6870 shines as a solid gaming product.” - Benchmark Reviews

Hardware Canucks

“AMD’s HD 6870 and HD 6850 are two cards that actually managed to exceed our expectations in nearly every conceivable way. HD 6870 has the ability to significantly outdistance the GTX 460 1GB at nearly every single resolution and IQ setting we used which came as a complete shock considering its price hovers around the $240 mark. In our opinion, the HD 6850 provides an excellent alternative to the GTX 460 768MB and has the ability to compete directly against the more expensive GTX 460 1GB. You can count the HD 6870 and HD 6850 as a kind of security net for future upgrades. With the HD 6870 and HD 6850, AMD has proven they can deliver evolutionary products that hit all the right points while remaining highly competitive performance-wise.”- Hardware Canucks - "Dame Good Value"

"This should give you an idea of just how much of a threat NVIDIA thinks the new Radeon HD 6870 is.  Radeon HD 6870, is the best mid to high-end graphics cards in the market right now... we feel that premium is justified because of its better overall performance and also the new features it offers." - Hardwardzone

"we appreciate the HDMI coming out of the DTS HD MA and Dolby Digital True HD bitstream. Also note that it is possible to extend the display on two, three or up to six monitors and extend the overall resolution.  we could say that AMD signs here a very good graphics card: performance in games, silent at rest and saving electricity." - Lesnumeriques - Rated 5 Stars
