3870 X2 Wipes the Floor!!

Recommended Posts

Well it's a good thing they fixed Tiger Woods. :rolleyes:

 

Note: I'm pretty sure the improvements they listed have already been included in the review, so don't go getting your hopes up that it'll be another 50% better than you see already. While that'd be great, I imagine their drivers aren't quite that bad.

I dunno, but I was pretty sure the only review with the new drivers is the one @ andantech.

 

Yes thats why I posted it. The performance numbers are with drivers that where only finalized a day or two previous.

This is not a crossfire card.

 

Incorrect. The 3870 X2 is a CrossFire pair on a common PCB. The advantage is you do not

need a CrossFire motherboard to use it just as NV's GX2 cards will SLI in a CF MB.

Well for right now I dont care for this card, Not becuse of performance but the fact it wont fit in my case, it will hit my hard drives. I have a chieftec case. Both AMD and Nvidia need to stop making the cards so long.

 

PowerColor has a non reference, OC version that is quite a bit shorter.

Nah mack, it may be better for people who will want stock cooling etc, but no aftermarket X2 coolers will fit that thing!

 

I know but they have shortened the PCB if you look carefully. It's just not an aftermarket cooler, but they have revised the PCB. So the shorter the better i would think. :)

Thats what I meant! Becuase of the shorter PCB no Watercooler or other Aftermarket cooler would fit it.

But Non-Modders can fit it into their mini towers. Instead of wishing they could have that kind of power.:rolleyes:
