PowerColor’s HD 4870 PCS suffers from instability

After one day?s test, we found the card delivers a gorgeous performance, but lower stability. For one thing, BIOS limited fan speed too low, that results in a higher GPU temperature; For the other thing, it gets through 3DMark Vantage, but fails to complete FurMark test. We believe it?s the BIOS setting that causes these problems and asked PowerColor for a new BIOS, but the answer was not avalaible yet.

In any case, the PowerColor?s HD 4870 surprises us with its elaborate design. We?re expecting PowerColor to release a refine BIOS to make it better than the best.
