More about 4870x2 benchmarks
  1. hopefully drivers will improve scaling in crysis... so much for the claimed 1.8 performance scaling... that was supposed to happen no matter what do to the earlier interconnect between gpus... o well... maybe next gen
  2. Couple of points:

    They're using the same Cat 8.7 Beta drivers that were released for the 4870 -- I find it hard to believe those drivers were designed to work with a new GPU bridge for the 4870X2.

    That being said, the 4870X2 does appear to deliver 15-20% performance improvement which is exactly on target.

    And finally, they didn't test any games (like FSX) that lack meaningful CF/SLI support, this is where 4870X2 will shine, in games like FSX.

    But like I said in my other post, 4870X2 CF will clearly out perform a Tri SLI GTX 280 setup and most likely cost considerably less.

    Lets hope this lights a fire under nVidia so the one up war can continue.
  3. nobody else has gddr5 do they ?

    no, not yet.
  5. will I be able to xfire a 4870X2 with vanilla 4870?
  6. well if you have the 1 gig version of the 4870, it should run just fine, I guess. It might get a bit more complicated with those 512 versions that are out now. But we'll see when the card is properly launched 13th of August or thereabouts
  7. when are the 1GB 4870s going to be available? How do you find such info?
  8. whats with these lame posts... bringing multi-week old threads back... stupid

    Half your links are broken and the ones that do work are from the preliminary R700 reviews of engineering samples. You can't even troll correctly. GTFO!
