Re: Diamond GPU advantages?
If you're just talking about the brand, no. There is NO difference and/or advantage. If you're talking about the XOC version that Diamond has, then yes, you'll have a slight advantage over normal clocked 6870's. Honestly, I would much rather go for XFX over Diamond. Much better warranties. Lifetime of XFX > 2 years of Diamond.
