$399.00 Released October, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Excellent utility that allows users to adjust GPU voltage either for overclocking purposes or for power saving needs. Fastest single GPU card on the market (at the time of release). With the good cooling system and voltage adjustments, the HD85870 has plenty of room for overclocking.

The Cons:Relatively short warranty offered by ASUS compared to some companies that offers 5yrs or lifetime warranties (e.g. EVGA).

The Asus EAH5870 is a video card for the gaming enthusiast willing to spend a little extra but not ready to buy the top of the line. It has a fast processor, a good amount of speedy memory, and outputs for almost any kind of display.
