It displays some stunning performance numbers, chewing up most of our benchmarks and the rest of the competition for now. Keep in mind that this power measurement is taken running a 3dmark pixel shader test using almost no other resources. Editor’s Choice The Sapphire HD X2 is by the fastest graphics card we have ever reviewed and this performance is truly astounding.

Editor’s Choice The Sapphire HD X2 is by the fastest graphics card we have ever reviewed and this performance is truly astounding.
Melvis Jan 25, So with performance at the higher resolutions comparable to, or better than, both of those bst cards on bestt test system, the HD X2 could be a wise choice.
A nice addition is the extension of Overdrive. I have always splashed out on top end cards i build a new pc about overy years and have aways been happy with their life span. The benchmark features the game actually playing itself as three factions vie for control of a large island.
PowerColor HD 4870 X2 – graphics card – Radeon HD 4870 X2 – 2 GB Series
Melvis Jan 16, One hell of a card which produces performance that is unmatched by any single PCIe slot based solution. Members Current visitors New profile posts Search profile posts. Asus increases the usual limit in the driver 4870z2 MHz to MHz. ITR Recommended Performance is stunning considering the price point the card is pitched at.

Oblivion Performance Scaling Enemy Territory: We have seen all over the net how the card is taking top honors in all benchmarks. Company of Heroes was one of the first games to get a DirectX 10 patch. So, we enabled 4xAA and 16xAF using the control panel. Believe it or not – the best just got better. There are some caveats, though. bsst
The Sapphire HD X2 is by the fastest graphics card we have ever reviewed and this performance is truly astounding. Part 1 Page 4: It is the R based X2, and we are going to see if lands squarely, or if it is a whiff.
Taking the card past that point is at your own risk. Until Futuremark gives approval to Nvidia drivers that include PhysX optimizations and until more games ship with hardware PhysX support, this is the best means of producing apples-to-apples comparisons.
If you are thinking about a multi GPU solution involving the latest hardware you are going to want something upwards of 1KW. So far so good, right? Unreal Tournament 3 —This latest update to Unreal Tournament features better single player, but the action is focused on multiplayer. Full stripped it down to nothing, cleaned it inside and out, replaced all thermal pads and paste, greased the fan etc.
Best Drivers for a 4870X2??
Power utilization is one of the downfalls of using two GPUs on a single board. UT3 was updated with the 1.
The Latest On Tom’s Hardware. Would have been nice to see the in crossfire since it’d besh comparable with my 2x setup. Yep I changed it to full screen mode from not windows mode but the other option they give you.
Mass Effect Page But our test card can easily do a stable MHz—again the best value in the test group. Seems to me that the drivers are not picking up that the card runs in crossfire, I get no option to turn on or off crossfire, only 1 GPU is working when playing games. Instead, the company gives you two power adapters, and the 8-pin adapter is rather rare. What is the cooler you have on that processor?
