HD 4870 X2 performance preview published
This preview has shown a very positive light on AMD?s ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2. Usually previews can go two ways, either it is going to perform really badly, or it is going to outperform our expectations. This was the latter; the ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 outperformed our initial expectations. Even in this preview state the hardware and drivers have a very solid feel to them. The CrossFireX experience was easy to setup and worked without any fuss.
We are excited about testing fully finalized retail hardware with newer drivers. Our performance evaluation has shown spectacular performance already, and we are really excited as it can get better from here. NVIDIA has some real competition with the Radeon HD 4870 X2, especially if it is offered at a competitive price. Gamers will certainly have more options for high-end gaming, and this is a good thing.
