Radeon HD 6850 PowerColor Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon HD 6850 PowerColor Edition is a special edition of the high-end Radeon HD 6850. See its page for more information about it.
Compared to the Radeon HD 6850, this Special Edition has exactly the same specifications and we do not know of any special features that might boost its performance or any other tweaks, such as an improved cooling system.
Therefore, the performance is EXACTLY like the standard Radeon HD 6850 and enough to run today's demanding games at maximum settings while Very Demanding games like Metro 2033 or Max Payne 3, will probably require reduced settings to run smoothly.
