Looks to be a custom cooled card but I cannot find any reviews on the difference between this and the regular one.

The Sapphire HD 6870 has a new architecture with a total of 1120 stream processors and 56 texture units delivering massively parallel computing power for graphics and other accelerated applications. Its core clock speed of 900MHz, together with a dedicated high speed interface to 1GB of GDDR5 memory running at 1050MHz (4.2 Gb/s effective) delivers class leading performance. It boasts a very modest active power consumption and, using Dynamic Power Management, the card has a super low-power idle mode.

Expect about 4-5 frames on average, about 8-10 on older less demanding games and 1-2 on those really high spec demanding games. Really you'll only see the benefit if the price isn't too far above other models or your willing to overclock (the overclock would provide much more difference).
