Runs at 800MHz

Vertex3D has rolled out its newest factory overclocked card based on AMD's Barts GPU, the HD 6850 X Edition. Featuring a custom cooler, the new HD 6850 X also comes with a rather modest factory overclock.

As noted, we are talking about the HD 6850 based on AMD's Barts GPU with 960 stream processors. The card works at 800MHz for the GPU and comes with 1GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4200MHz and paired up with a 256-bit memory interface. The new HD 6850 X Edition features a custom cooler with a 92mm fan and two copper heatpipes.

The new card still needs a single 6-pin PCI-Express power connector and features two DVI, one HDMI and single DisplayPort outputs. The card should show up in retail pretty soon, and we expect the price to be somewhere around €160 to €170.

So what? They can just stick on her the new logo.

ON: 800MHz is just a 25MHz bump (775 reference).

I guess a possible reason why they avoid releasing highly overclocked HD 6850s is because they would price said card too close to the HD 6870. Also about Vertex3D HD6850 i can say i like the retro plastic used for the cooler. Reminds me of coolers used on cards like HD 3850/3870.

Why dont they make GFX demos to show off new cards anymore? this trend sort of vanished a few GFX generations back.
