Diamond Radeon 6870 XOC
We’ve seen the AMD 6000 series cards offer some great gaming performance at respectable prices. They’re not the giant killers we had hoped but it’s certainly been interesting to watch AMD and Nvidia battle it out, particularly in the mid-range market where most of the sales happen.
Nvidia has come on strong lately with their 500 series cards but the only card they have in their mid-range lineup is the previous generation GTX 460. It’s a formidable card, but the AMD Radeon 6870 is positioned to have a punch up to continue AMD’s success.
Diamond is a company known for typically pushing overclocked graphics cards, and today’s variant is no exception. The Diamond Radeon 6870 XOC is essentially a reference design but it boasts a strong factory overclock and great gaming horsepower at a decent price. Let’s take a closer look at the Diamond Radeon 6870 XOC and see what it can do.
