AMD Radeon 6570 512MB Graphics Card Review

/ 12 years ago


Next Page »

I’m going to start things off on a bad note, as you may or may not know, we took a look at the AMD Radeon 6450 not so long ago, and it was great for the general usage tasks and HTPC purposes but it didn’t really get our blood pumping, but it was never really set out to do that in the first place.

Today we are looking at another similar card, but with a slight bit more power, but still not enough to excite us massively. Now we love looking at the latest, fastest components that only a handful of people can afford, and because we get to have a play with it, we tend to forget the bigger picture and the mass audience that is the mainstream market.

After this realisation, we felt it were necessary to show you the potential performance for the slightly faster Radeon 6570, though you will see straight away that it seems AMD have gone back in time on this one. Can you spot what we’re talking about?
