XFX Radeon HD 5850 Black Edition 1GB video card review

Having taken a look at a reference clocked Radeon HD 5850 board last week, we now have an opportunity to turn our attentions to what's available in the world of factory overclocked Radeon HD 5850 boards.

More specifically, today we'll be shifting our focus to XFX's Radeon HD 5850 Black Edition, which follows this particular AIB's usual practice of sticking with a reference cooling solution, but making significant changes to core and memory clocks to boost performance as far as possible.  Just how much of a benefit can this Black Edition part offer against a standard Radeon HD 5850?  That's what we're here to find out, so read on if you want to see for yourself.
