The VDrift racing game was barely playable for the other graphics cards on the proprietary drivers when running at 2560 x 1600, but with the Radeon HD 6870 with the same settings, the frame-rate was up by 46% over the Radeon HD 4890 or 67% on the Radeon HD 5770.

When using the proprietary drivers from AMD or NVIDIA, virtually any graphics card can handle running the open-source Warsow game. With the Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 Vapor-X, the Warsow frame-rate at 2560 x 1600 is nearly 300 FPS.

For those interested in using the Radeon HD 6870 with the X-Plane flight simulator, it is certainly a playable experience, even at 2560 x 1600.
