Default Re: My 8800GTX vs 4870 tests

Well I'm crazy and have ordered the 4870x2, so in the next few days I will re-run all those benchmarks again, with 4xAA (for apples-to-apples comparison) and with Extreme 24xAA

Default Re: My 8800GTX vs 4870 tests

man i wish i got me job since the 2gb version goes for 4400 approx. in Swedish currency

as of now i canīt afford one even if sold my HD4870 wich i donīt want to since i have the GIgabyte GA-EX38 DS4 board i guess i can go Crossfire with a 4870+4870X2 but thus i donīt know how the setup will perform

i have the antec P190 and it should have enough power to run 1 HD4870+1HD4870X2?

I have also thought about the possibility: 3xCrossfire with the 4870 and the x2, but I think this setup has one problem: the 4870x2 has two 4870s with 1 Gb memory each, while the standalone 4870 is limited to 512 Mb, so I don't know if the 512 Mb card could limit the whole system in extreme resolution & AA conditions, maybe half of the memory of the 4870x2 would be "lost"

that is good possibility, when you use SLI or CF every core needs access to same data.

so you would end up with 3x512mb.

Thanks LordJuanlo, yes it costed a smaller fortune, though I donīt have space for two desktops, besides this one is easy to just take with me if I go to a friend or anything, instead of dissasemble the whole desktop with all the cords and monitor . I usually play LAN at home with a friend, thereby I need to powerful systems.

I look forward to those 4870x2 benchmarks.

Tomb Raider Legend, The Witcher, Devil May Cry 4, Assassin's Creed... all those games have been used in my previous bench, so they will be benchmarked again when I get the 4870x2.

BTW it's here

While we know that the DMC4 and AC scale (still want your results though), I wonder if TRL and TWtchr will.
