Questions and Possible Awnsers
1- The diferrence between scores is cuz they(you tom, yeah you!) used a different testing plataform?
1.1- I searched within chart pages and dint found nothing. BUT it can be a possible reason

2- In Gaming "Graphics Charts 2009" the price for "ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 (2x1024 MB)" cannot be correct.
2.1- If you click the link of the price you will get this Best Data Diamond Radeon HD 4870 Video Card - 1024MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Ready (Dual Link)

3- In adittion to 2.1, if possible that they(YOU TOM!!!) got a lil typo error and instead of "ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 (2x1024 MB)" was "ATI Radeon HD 4870 CF (2x1024 MB)"?
3.1- Maybe or a link error :P

P.D. I love THS, this isnt flaming or anything, im just trying to help if any one got the same problem

  1. Hi,

    I have reported this. Thanks for the info.

  2. Panacuba,

    Indeed, the performance differences come from using a significantly different platform. I will look into including platform information somewhere in there.

    Re: the pricing, the link has been updated to point straight to a Radeon HD 4870 X2 card, so it should be fixed!
