Sapphire Radeon HD 6670 Ultimate 1GB Graphics Card Review
Andy Ruffell / 5 years ago
This years video card industry has brought a plethora of upgrades to the market, technologies such as multi-monitor solutions and 3D are some of the tops that come to mind. The video card company that takes it a step further and comes up with their own niche, creates technologies that no other manufacturer has are the ones that going to succeed. Sapphire has proven themselves one of these innovative manufacturers time and time again, first with vapor-X cooling, next making Eyefinity out of the box solutions with their FleX technology.
This time they’ve listened to consumers demands and taken the proverb “silence is golden”, with the 6670 Ultimate they’ve not only released a 6670 fanless solution, but if you can find the coveted Dirt 3 bundle, you can get the amazing arcade rally race game “Dirt 3” with the package, making this almost a steal since the game itself is on Steam for 49.99.
The Sapphire 6670 Ultimate is exactly the same chipset and model that was released a few months back with the core clock set to 800 Mhz and the memory clock set to 1000 Mhz, a total of 1Gb of Gddr5 memory is included, and it sports Dual DVI, HDMi and Display port outputs.
The main difference of the Ultimate model is the new Silent Heatpipe technology, which you’ll see by the end of the review is really efficient at keeping the card cooler then even the fan solution. The 6670 is an entry level card, it can help to speed up most productivity tasks such as office applications, is easily powerful enough to handle HD movie playback, and can also be used to run most games sufficiently under medium settings.
