Featuring a reconfigured Cypress GPU, the Barts architecture delivers AMD’s HD3D technology with better performance and price.
Sometimes a product is so good, there’s no reason to change a solid working design. VisionTek accepts this practice, and offers consumers the most affordable video cards sold on the market. In this article Benchmark Reviews tests the VisionTek Radeon HD 6870 video card, a $240 DirectX-11 graphics solution that performs better than the more expensive Radeon HD 5850. The most notable new feature is Bart’s 3rd-generation Unified Video Decoder with added support for DisplayPort 1.2. AMD’s UVD3 accelerates multimedia playback and transcoding, while introducing AMD HD3D stereoscopic technology with multi-view CODEC (MVC) support for playing 3D Blu-ray over HDMI 1.4a.
Graphical frame rate performance is tested using the most demanding PC video game titles and benchmark software available. DirectX-10 favorites such as Crysis Warhead and PCMark Vantage are all included, in addition to DX11 titles such as Aliens vs Predator, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, BattleForge, Lost Planet 2, Mafia II, Metro 2033, and the Unigine Heaven 2.1 benchmark. Built to deliver improved performance to the value-hungry mainstream gaming market, the VisionTek 900338 Radeon HD 6870 video card delivers top-end performance at a value-added price point.
