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.

  • Summary: Sapphire's Radeon HD4870 offers an impressive amount of graphics power at a modest price, and while it won't appeal to the power gamer, it's more than enough for most users.
  • Pros: Good performance for its price, HDCP support
  • Cons: You're still going to have trouble with Crysis at 1400x960 using Very High settings!
