Sapphire Radeon HD4870 Review

2 July 2009
  • Summary: After we reviewed the Sapphire HD4850 we thought we had seen the best that ATI/AMD had to offer. We found just how wrong we were when we ran our first test with the Sapphire HD 4870. Here is a video card that has Nvidia scratching it's head try to find card that will compete with it.

Sapphire Radeon HD 4870 Vapor-X (1Gb GDDR5)

CPU3D
6 April 2009
  • Summary: The cooling performance of this card is out of this world. The fan is practically inaudible with the card in the test rig only a few feet away from me. The temperatures were very low as we've seen and the driver controlling the fan speed does a great job.
  • Pros: - Vapor-X Cooling, - Native HDMI, - 800 stream processors + 230GB/sec o memory bandwidth, - Black Diamond - Sapphire choke offers 10% cooler and 25% more power efficiancy than normal choke
  • Cons: - Hot competition from the many, many other 4870 cards out there., - Price.

Sapphire Radeon HD 4870 Vapor-X 2,048MB: big frame-buffer useful?

HEXUS
1 April 2009
  • Conclusion: Sapphire's decision to manufacture a Radeon HD 4870 graphics card with custom Vapor-X cooler and larger-than-normal 2,048MB frame-buffer is a slightly odd choice given the expected etail price of around £220, including VAT.

  • Conclusion: As we alluded to in our opening, it's exciting to see that we've now entered a world of plenty when it comes to the differentiation of AMD's graphics products, and it's frequently Sapphire that we look to as the AIB partner at the forefront of such innovations.

Sapphire Radeon HD 4870 TOXIC 1GB video card review

Elite Bastards
6 January 2009
  • Conclusion: Overall, there isn't a really a great deal that we can say about the 1GB variant of Sapphire's Radeon HD 4870 TOXIC that we didn't already cover in our review of the 512MB model.

Elite Bastards
6 October 2008
  • Conclusion: Despite all of the praise lavished upon AMD's Radeon HD 4870, no graphics board is ever perfect and thus there is always room for improvement somewhere within its design, leaving plenty of room for AIB partners to come along and right any wrongs courtesy of their own board configurations.
