Sapphire HD 4870 X2 Atomic Watercooled

19 December 2008
  • Summary: If you are looking for the perfect christmas present for any ATI fanboy then the Sapphire HD 4870 X2 Atomic is as good as it gets. Its a big package that will ensure proper excitement before unpacking. The presentation is outstanding, even though the build quality of the watercooling tubing leaves me wanting some real rubber tubes.
  • Pros: Great performance, Overclocked out of the box, Full warranty for watercooling + overclock, Amazing presentation and accessory package, Single slot cooler, Quiet under load, CPU block included
  • Cons: High price, Only small performance increase over reference design, Fan speed fixed - noisy in idle, CrossFire does not work in windowed 3D, Extremely high power consumption in idle, CPU waterblock doesn't seem to be too powerful, Limited overclock despite water cooling, Complex overclocking process, Dual GPU design - depends on optimum driver support, Build quality not as good as HD 3870 X2 Atomic, New competing NVIDIA products arriving soon, Two fan power connectors ...

Sapphire Radeon HD 4870 X2 ATOMIC: the fastest gets faster

18 December 2008
  • Conclusion: It's always difficult not to faint when a manufacturer presents a gamer-orientated graphics card with an asking price in the region of £500, plus VAT! - enough, we should add, to purchase both a PlayStation 3 and an Xbox 360 with change left over. In the current economic climate, you'd think Sapphire has lost the plot, but perhaps not.

Sapphire Radeon HD4870x2 (2Gb GDDR5)

18 August 2008
  • Summary: The results from the benchmarks prove that the Sapphire Radeon HD4870x2 is really something. In all of our tests, we've seen the Radeon HD4870x2 come top of the list. This is all thanks to the power of 2 RV770 XT GPUs and the massive 2Gb of GDDR5 ram. There's no question in my mind, that AMD/ATI are back in the game when it comes to producing affordable high-end graphic cards aimed at the hardcore gamer and enthusiast.
  • Pros: - AMD/ATI's Radeon HD4870x2 (R700) GPUs, - Excellent performance, - A massive 2Gb onboard memory, - Uses GDDR5 ram, - Supports Crossfire configuration, - 1600 Processor Streams (2x800), - DX10.1 support
  • Cons: - High GPU temperatures

Sapphire HD 4870 X2 2048 MB

11 August 2008
  • Summary: AMD has not promised too much when they stated that their HD 4870 X2 will be the fastest graphics card in the world. The HD 4870 X2 leads our testing with a 14% performance advantage over the NVIDIA GTX 280. However, this price will cost you. $549 is a huge amount of money which results in the worst performance per dollar ratio of all cards on the market today.
  • Pros: Fastest graphics card on the planet, GDDR5, 1 GB for each GPU, PCI-E 2.0 bridge chip, HDMI+HDCP+Audio via adapter, 7.1 HDMI Audio integrated in GPU, PCI-Express 2.0 support, Nice software bundle, Supports CrossFireX, DirectX 10.1 support
  • Cons: Crippled performance in 2D / windowed 3D, High price, Does not scale well with all titles, High power consumption, Complicated overclocking, Limited overclocking potential, Does not support CUDA/PhysX, No native HDMI output, CrossFire Sideport disabled at launch

  • Conclusion: . System chłodzenia jak i rozmiary płytki PCB (oraz jej ogólna budowa) są bardzo podobne, co wskazuje na niemal identyczne podejście do tematu konstrukcji samej karty. Jednak te zewnętrzne podobieństwa skrywają bardzo poważne zmiany „wewnętrzne”. . Sam układ należy zaliczyć do bardzo udanych, co wykazały testy. Połączenie takich dwóch we flagowym produkcie wydało się zatem ruchem oczywistym. Jest to też pierwsza konkretna różnica względem poprzednika – .
