5870 price range

Recommended Posts

Yes Bosco it does seem like stuttering sometimes, but it only happens sometimes. Is this just an error with my card?

 

@ KK_ - I have the newest ATI driver and I don't get that fan speed control, how do I get it? My friend had it too......motherboard, what the heck :angry:

102 C for a 4850 is relatively normal, not hot.

Those temps only apply to the first 4850's with the single slot coolers.My XFX 4850 averages about 65 C.

I get the stuttering problems as well.Apparently its related to a v-sync problem,and if you downgrade to catalyst 9.4 and below its barely noticeable.But imo it really sucks,how can ati not even sort a simple problem like that? Its the reason im selling my 4850 and getting a 260.Im interested to see the new dx11 cards from ati,but i certainly wont be buying one.

i wont buy one too , if they run hot

but i think nvidia wont make the same mistake twice this year ATI almost took the crown but nvidia got it back with these (gtx 275/285/295)

and to enthusiasts sli is better than cf so nvidia should keep this

i hope they make the 5870 with a 512-bit memory bus and using the gddr5 then they may take the crown

never had a driver issue, but my 4870 idling at around 60C... full load is around 70C, the fan is set on auto. so that may be the cause for the high temps...

 

i think ill be getting a 4870X2 when 58xx series will be released.

if you want to get a card when dx 11 cards will be released , get another 4870 or 5870 or 5850 do not waste your money on old card getting another 4870 is better than a 4870x2 because you will not pay much and i always say : two cards are better than one

and i think 5850 will be much faster than 4890 so 5870 will be a beast

 

 

we are making some mistakes , when the 8000 came out i know some who sold his 7950 and got 8600 which is slower just because the 8600 supports dx10 , i mean if you are happy with the performance you get why get another card , there will be no dx 11 games till 2010 ( i think so ) , so why do you even get another card i will get a new dx 11 card when gtx 300 comes out when when there is games that supports dx 11 ( except for bioshock )

 

 

this is what i hate about gpus every year a new generation comes out you do not even get the chance of knowing the weakness of your card

but in the other hand you get new cards ..........it is complicated , i know some of you will say :withstupid: but , when the i7 940 came out and some one bought it then the 950 came out and he wants it`s performance , all what you have to do is overclock it a little bit , but gpus

lets say i have a gtx 280 or 4870 when the gtx 285 and the 4890 came out there were a performance gap between each card and it`s brother

no matter what you do you can`t close that gap .....................gosh i am tired of writing ........did you get ....?
