[WTB] 2x 4870 or 4870x2 $200

Recommended Posts

Get a 4890, performs the same as a 4870X2, is 20x less power hungry, and it's new...

Uh, not really.

 

The 4890 is slower in nearly everything by about 40% and it uses a little over half of what a 4870X2 does.

The 4870x2 came in today, and I gotta say... It eats my 4890 alive. And the price is crazy too. When I bought it (returned now due to waterblock incompatibility), it cost me $200 + 7% tax in NJ. That's around $214, I got the 4870x2 for $240 shipped flat, I think I got a killer deal :P

4870x2's are not to bad in games they scale well in. When you have not Crossfire support it can be miserable.
