4870x2 review!

This card is BEAST and i might add sexy as hell.

http://www.driverheaven.net/reviews....d=607&pageid=2

Althought its a beast of a card for a single slot, the 280 still shows its power in SLI taking it out. Of course 4GPUs > 2 but the GT200 is still the fastet chip out there.

lol the 2nd World in Conflict graph is wrong. The average of the X2 cant be higher then the max can it.

Very interesting review, not that I can afford a X2 lol.

For the Resolution I game at (1600X1200) a single HD4870 would be a lot better value for money for me...

I've read 4 reviews so far and have another 5 or 6 to go..

Neoseekers was an alright read. Was a better one I read earlier (maybe Guru3d's).

Obviously wanna see what our very own OC3D have to saw on it though

*cough* steal one if you have to! *cough*

Ok make that about 10 more to go

Gonna have oblong eyes!

Edit:

Pah... TweakTown are crippling the cards in their review with a 3.0GHz clocked Q6600 and 2 x 1GB of RAM at 800MHz . Did they not wonder why they were getting quite similar results on a lot of the benches.

There were signs of bottleneck in some reviews with CPUs clocked much higher than that!

Come across a good review.. Gonna link to the Crysis page as it show some crazy results with AA....

Also the lil bit on the conclusion about micro stuttering is the first I've seen to mention it.

If ya got time read the whole thing then do

You just take your time, as the saying goes it's not always the jokey who comes first that wins the race
