Our AMD rep gave us the green light to post some preliminary benchmarks of the HD4870s in single and CrossFireX setups. We have the stats on our forums, check it out!
It certainly looks promising for the Reds considering the pricepoint they are offering their HD4800 series cards. :D
Whoops, realized that the thread title said "3870". The cards are actually the new 4870s. Darned "3" and "4" are easy to hit by mistake. :( (ed- Fixed title. -C#)
...and these as well... [COLOR=blue]First Review: HD 4870 and HD 4850 - Expreview.com[/COLOR] [COLOR=blue]512MB ATI HD 4870 ve 1GB GeForce 9800 GX2 Crysis Tests[/COLOR] [COLOR=blue]AMD tests 4870 and 4870CF-beats GTX260 in Crysis-rumor - [H]ard|Forum[/COLOR] Personally I'm disapointed in it's Very High Crysis performance at 1920x1200. You have to CF it or go with the X2 and even then you're sub 30 FPS, and that's with no AA. If Nvidia ever makes a GX2 280 it will easily be top dog, but God knows what they'll charge for it. That being said, I should digress and say that I'll be glad when CryTek comes through with that claim of Warhead being able to play on much lower spec than Crysis with the same level of graphics, IF they can pull it off. CryTek have created somewhat of a monster in Crysis being used as the #1 bench reference.
This card is looking goooooooood!
