Radeon HD 6850 MSI OC Power Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon HD 6850 MSI OC Power Edition is a special edition of the Radeon HD 6850. See the page of the standard edition for more information about it.
The new features include increases in the core and memory clocks that went from 775MHz to 860MHz and from 1050MHz to 1100MHz, respectively. Features that make it more energy efficient and a better cooling system are also included.
The performance increase is about 9% according to benchmarks and so and so even the most demanding games are playable at high settings but not with extreme resolutions and extreme technologies due to the limited memory size.

I am playing Call of Duty Black Ops II at maximum settings, activating AA 8x and never go below 60 fps at 1366x768 (usually go at 80-90 fps but go down for a fraction of seconds to 60 fps).
I really like this card !

I actually wondered myself.
This card runs perfectly at low temps and doesn't stutter on Skyrim on ultra.
Site bug maybe.
