Excellent

First GPU I bought, still have it in my main Computer for some old gaming or 720p recent gaming


Terrible

14 months ago.

Have it from 2012. Gives consistent 60fps in DiRT 3 in FHD high settings Games like CSGO, DOTA 2 and valorant are well covered. Amazing mid range card when released. Still modestly strong.


Poor

17 months ago.

I have one of these and they are performing well i can play some games that require 2 gb of vram with 1 gb of vram, i can reccommend this card if you have really small budget ... it's still worth it if you want to have it as an office GPU for microsoft office word then it's worth trying (with AMD Athlon X4 860K you can 1440p60 videos on youtube without any problem)


Good

Good

4 years ago.

Worked quite a bit better than the statistics say it should I got it running 50 or so FPS on Battlefront 2017 where they say the min system requirements are 2GB graphics ram and the 6850 only has 1gb I was running the thing with an FX-4100 of all things.
