Radeon HD 6850 MSI OC 8cm PWM Fan Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon HD 6850 MSI OC 8cm PWM Fan 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 an increase in the core-clock that went from 775MHz to 800MHz a 8cm PWM Fan is also featured to keep the temperatures low.
The performance increase is about 1.5% 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.

Well you can't put it at 9 or 10 because that is where the 7870,7970 and 7990 roams. But i do get what you are saying. I believe it should be ranked out of a 100. It will be much more accurate. The 7990 can be 100 and 7970 can be 95 and 7870 can be 90 or whatever, you get the idea. Or the ranking system should use decimals. 10.0, 9.5 and 9.0 etc. (just copied this from my other post.) The 6850 is around the 7.0 - 8.0 compared to other newer better cards.

Yeah, there was a problem after we updated the GPU ranks considering the new drivers. All should be fine now, please report it if otherwise.
