MSI R6850-PM2D1GD5 (AMD Radeon HD 6850) Review

In early November we had two graphics cards based on AMD’s Radeon HD 6850 and presented today follows now a third. This is the model of the manufacturer MSI R6850-PM2D1GD5, which differs in terms of board layout and design of AMD’s reference cooler design. PowerColor followed a similar path, could we in terms of power consumption and overclocking potential is not entirely convincing, however. If the MSI R6850-PM2D1GD5 do better?

Just like AMD’s reference card and PowerColor Radeon HD 6850 GPU with the MSI can be 775 MHz and 1000 MHz memory with the graphics work. When we speak of 1000 MHz, these are the simple timing of GDDR5 memory. Some manufacturers prefer to talk of 4000 MHz, because it sounds better, but while they throw the clock and the data rate, which is located at 4000 Mbps through each other.
