Conclusion:

Going back to the first question that I asked at the beginning of the review — are you looking for a new graphics card for your system? Well if you answered yes to this question and you are not looking to break any world records or play video games with maxed out settings, you may just have the right card in mind. If you are looking to build an HTPC or a system that is going to need a few monitors connected to it, the Sapphire HD6670 may be just what you are looking for. Sapphire's HD6670 graphics card is going to give you DirectX 11 support, as well as the ability to run AMD's Eyefinity for right under $100, but you are not going to be able to run the latest games at maximum resolution and have all your DX 11 graphics options enabled and turned up to the maximum settings. Nevertheless, you should still be able to play some of your favorite older games at pretty decent frame rates. In addition, you are going to get a graphics card that will provide you the option to connect a display device using either an HDMI cable, DVI, or DisplayPort 1.2 port, which is just about perfect if you were looking to build a new HTPC and not spend a whole lot on a graphics card.

The overclocking of Sapphire's HD6670 was not the greatest that I have seen, but this graphics card was not designed to be the highest clocker, nor was it designed with high 3DMark scores in mind. Where this card does shine is in the temperature and power consumption testing. The Sapphire HD6670 was one of the coolest running graphics cards during both the stock and overclocked load testing, and was also pulling the least amount of power during both of those tests. I would suggest this card to anyone who is looking to build a new computer on a budget and is not a heavy gamer. I would also suggest this card to anyone who is building an HTPC that wants a quiet running card that is also going to give them multiple connectivity options while not jacking up their power bill.
