Its really sad to see this place over run by jackasses the way that it has been lately.
I know perhaps you should stop posting here.

Bull****, read any review of the card.

Enough name calling, (you know who you are) maybe a vacation might in order here.

I'll give a +1 to that. Jolly good show chaps.

I don't think NVIDIA will win back its performance leadership this year.

Exactly right. The name calling is the reason why I stopped replying in this thread. There should not be need for it any debate if somebody has a good point. Strangely the name calling gets sometime more tolerated by so called NV enthusiast.

I also believed it's about time 'Rollo' stops his constant bashing of ATI product. ATI sure doesn't deserve it this round.

There are many NV enthusiast on this forum but very few are on the same trip like rollo.

Some people say they like the competition but they posting more like indicate they would love to see the ATI dead.

Death to the ATI!

In all seriousness I don't think NVIDIA will win back its performance leadership this year.

For the record, my 4870 ran hot and noisy. I used the fan profile "trick" to set the fan at 40% and it was not only obnoxiously loud but ran considerably hotter than K007 reports, Crysis put it in the 80+C range, as did most games. Heck it idled at 45-50C and that's with the fan "trick". Now I also have an Antec case and 2 120mm fans which keep my rig nice and cool, so I'd have to call shens on the "mine dosen't go over 50C in Crysis after 2-3 hours of messing around in it. Fan is @ 35%. barely audible over " report.
The 4870 is no the be all, end all that some are trying to portray it as
If you like that card and it suits your needs, fine, buy one and run it but don't exaggerate to sell others on it
I am not making it up. Since rivatuner is working i will post some gameplay temps over the weekend when i get some free time, but the temps for me has never gone above 50C at least on crysis, i have not run this 'furmak' thing apparently it heats any card up and the gtx goes over 100c. It normally idle around 70-80c and the load goes maybe 85c..not much on default fan, but the increase to 35% drops it a lot, idle is around 42C.

No offense m8, I just had a totally different experience with the card
Anyway, the 4870 and 4870x2 are good products if that's what you choose to run. To each his own I say
My only beef is the trolling and whining about the NV "focus group" members, both here and at other forums. If they note where they are coming from, there should be no issue with them having their own point of view. Anyone who doesn't realize that "Big Red" does the same thing, only surreptitiously, doesn't have a clue IMHO.
