Radeon HD 6850 IceQ X Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon HD 6850 IceQ X Edition is a special edition of the Radeon HD 6850. See the page of the standard edition for more information about it.
Compared to the Radeon HD 6850, this Special Edition has exactly the same specifications and the only new feature is an improved cooling system which doesn't affect performance directly.
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.
