AMD Radeon HD 6870 & HD 6850 in CrossFireX
We took a hard look last week at AMD's Radeon HD 6870 and HD 6850, and in the end, were left impressed. The FPS/$ ratio was superb, as was the feature-set. How do things look when the same cards are tossed into a CrossFireX setup? Well, AMD claims an up to 1.99x gain in certain games, so let's see how reliable that figure is.
