Sapphire Radeon HD 3870 Toxic

AMDZone
5 July 2008
  • Conclusion: ATI/AMD is currently facing some stiff competition from Nvidia with their 9600 GT offering good mid-range performance and slightly undercutting the pricing on the 3870. We believe it is in their interest for AMD to knock down the price of the 3870 about $15 to give some added value.

Sapphire Radeon HD 3870 Toxic review

  • Conclusion: As I mentioned in our introduction, the Radeon HD 3870 Atomic has been my favourite Radeon HD 3870 board to work with thus far, and it should really go without saying that the Radeon HD 3870 Toxic also carries that accolade.

Sapphire HD 3870 Toxic

12 March 2008
  • Summary: Even though the Sapphire Vapor-X Cooling Technology is a nice feature I think the implementation of it could be better. Under load the fan is so noisy that you feel like throwing the card out of the system right after installation.
  • Pros: Single slot cooler, Overclocked out of the box, HDMI cable included, Low idle power consumption, HDMI+HDCP+Audio, PCI-Express 2.0 support, 3DMark full version included
  • Cons: Very noisy fan under load, Limited overclocking

  • Summary: The Sapphire HD3870 is ATI's next generation of GPUs, superseding the HD2000 series and challenging NVIDIA's 8800 GT cards for a place in the mid-range market.
  • Pros: Dedicated tessellation unit, UVD, DirectX 10.1 support, CrossfireX support
  • Cons: Gaming performance is only good at medium quality settings when playing DirectX 10 games

  • Summary: At last ATI has made a comeback of noteworthy proportions with this new board. Our look at the Sapphire Radeon HD3870 X2 has left us impressed, even if we're a little concerned with the limitations of this hardware-doubling technique.
  • Pros: Twin-GPU Crossfire on a single PCB, good performance scaling over 2 GPUs
  • Cons: Seems to be an overly simple and ultimately limited solution to NVIDIA's monopoly

  • Conclusion: Aber nicht nur die Leistung, sondern auch d er Preis ist mehr als entscheidend. D ie Preiskampf Strategie von aMD/ATI hat schon bei der HD 387 0 Serie gut geklappt. Das Ziel dieses Modells ist nicht nur die hohe Leistung, sondern auch der niedrige Preis.
