Sapphire Radeon HD 4870


$299.00 Released June, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Excellent improvements over performance with AA enabled, unlike the previous HD38xx generation where AA brings these highend cards to a crawl. Stock performance matches the overclocked GTX260 models, with overclocking, the ATI models can easily exceed the GTX 260. Overclocked performance comes close to the GTX280's level, but at a far lower price.

The Cons:Some motherboards do not support CrossFire, so multi-GPU users are advised to go for GTX 260 SLI for that purpose. Catalyst control center's overclocking limit prevents users from getting the most out of the card.

The Sapphire Radeon HD 4870 is a double slot high end graphics card with 512MB of DDR5 ram. Using the stock ATI cooler, the card is clocked at the default 750MHz/900MHz (gpu/memory) timings. For more information on the HD 4870 refer to the full report.
