After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

So while the HD 5870 was the previous generation "bad-boy" the new HD 6870 was nothing more than a docile pony designed to give the nVidia GTX 460 some company.
