XFX Radeon HD 5870 XXX Edition gets its tweaks in

The bulk of the graphics cards that are released with a GPU launch tend to stick near the factory settings because most manufacturers are in a rush to get their products to market quicker, the more interesting stuff comes along later.

The XFX Radeon HD 5870 XXX Edition serves up a bit of a clock speed bump which will power it past its stock clocked brothers. Motherboards.org has the review:

The XFX version of the HD 5870 card has a clock speed of 875MHz, which is 25MHz faster than the HD 5870 reference design. Their XT version has a clock speed of 865MHz which is a small decrease from this card. XFX has overclocked the memory by 100MHz over the reference clock as well. The memory on the card is GDDR5 memory which doubles the bandwidth of that found on GDDR3 memory. This translates into a memory data rate of 5.2Gbps and a memory bandwidth of 166.4GB/second.

It’s a speedier solution for those that can’t be bothered to do their own tweaking.
