Roundup: Four Radeon HD 6850 1 GB Cards Compared

Benchmark Results: DiRT 2

All four cards cruise through DiRT 2 at 1680x1050, with Sapphire’s Toxic 6850 taking the lead when AA is enabled.

We took notes on minimum frame rates and found the slowest card achieving 29 FPS with AA enabled, Ultra quality, and 2560x1600 resolution. Everyone passes, while Sapphire and PowerColor swap positions in performance leadership.
