XFX HD5870 2 GB Eyefinity6 with 6 monitors – the ultimate gaming experience?
25 June 2010
Conclusion: It is easy to see Eyefinity as some sort of gimmicky feature that few have any use for. AMD however actually has created a feature that is flexible enough to make it work for both regular computer use and for gaming. It is relatively easy to reconfigure Eyefinity after your needs. When Eyefinity works well it really enhances the gaming experience. Playing Supreme Commander 2 or Dirt 2 with 6 monitors is really cool and it is hard to go back to using one monitor again.
Excerpt: We’ve never been major advocates of GPU overclocking, as the minor gains you achieve often don’t justify the added heat and instability. But there’s a clear difference between Billy Joe doing a maximum overclock on his GPU and a vendor overclocking the part at the factory. So when XFX offered up its XXX Edition of the already-fast Radeon HD 5870, we were naturally curious.
Excerpt: All of the Radeon HD 5870s reviewed here are essentially identical—they’re the fastest single-GPU graphics cards you can buy currently. Out of the box, you get a typical one-year limited warranty. But if you register XFX’s product online within 30 days of purchase, the warranty lasts for “the duration of your life.” Not a bad deal, assuming the company is around that long. It’s nice having a great warranty, but you want great performance for your $390.
Excerpt: We got a chance to do a quick preliminary round of tests on Radeon HD 5870 and since our samples only arrived today, we didn’t have the chance to test it out as meticulously as we would've liked. We will of course soon come out with a full-blown review but for now here is a glimpse of what the XFX HD 5870 1GB is capable of. Thanks to XFX we can show you at least a bit of what this card is all about.
Conclusion: Il modello dovrebbe essere a breve disponibile. Non ci resta che attendere, anche se attualmente è molto difficile trovare in commercio una HD5870, visto che pochi sono i negozi che la commercializzano.
