But will 4870X2 be out in the next two months? And what about the heat on 4870X2? More about : upgrade gtx260 sli 4870x2 cfx fugben July 22, 2008 1:26:21 PM 4870x2 is out on 15th august. if you can edit two lines of a text document ur 4870x2 will run at 50 celsius. 2 4870x2 will kick 2 gtx 260 @sses in games the scale and probably still beat them in games that dont scale well at all. ovaltineplease July 22, 2008 1:26:37 PM 1, 4870x2 - or 2, 4870x2 if you plan to get a 30" display. read benchmarks and draw your own conclusions about any other details that matter to you. But gtx260 doesn't remotely compare to a 4870x2 on price, performance, thermals, or really much of anything.
