  • Conclusion: 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

  • 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
