Does it bring anything new to the table?
As the floodgates opened up for the AMD HD 6870 graphics card, ASUS also followed the market with the introduction of the EAH6870. Being ASUS, this card was not going to be released with just the reference settings, so while it looks the same as a factory AMD card, the EAH6870 in fact has two little surprises in store for us. The first is the full aluminum cover on the front of the card which dissipates heat much more efficiently than the reference card, and the EAH6870 comes with a miniscule overclock of 15MHz showing a Core Clock speed of 915MHz.
Aside from looking a little flashy, the ASUS EAH6870 looks pretty much like the rest of its counterparts, that is to say pretty boring. The card supports the standard HD 6870 features, such as HD3D (AMD’s stereoscopic 3D lingo), Eyefinity with support for up to 4 monitors with 2x DVI, HDMI and 2x DisplayPorts. Coupled with the packaging are 1x CrossFire cable and 1x Molex to PCIe power cable along with the drivers and utility CD.
