SAPPHIRE Technology Introduces New Dual GPU Graphics Accelerator

Hardwarezone Tue, 29 January 2008 - SAPPHIRE Technology is now introducing a new DUAL GPU graphics accelerator based on the successful HD 3870.

The SAPPHIRE HD 3870 X2 comprises two complete HD 3870 graphics systems on a single PCI-Express card. Each GPU has 512MB of GDDR3 memory, making a total of 1GB on-board memory. Two Dual Link DVI outputs are provided as well as TV-Out. 3D applications such as games use both on-board GPU's together in CrossFire mode to deliver a single accelerated output on the Primary display only. In this mode, the new SAPPHIRE HD 3870 X2 delivers comparable performance to two separate HD 3870 cards in CrossFire mode, making it the fastest performing single card available using this generation of technology.

I have an AMD athlonX2 4400 2.5GHz and ATI HD 3870 GDDR4

for performance to price ATI is best as i can play crysis at high and very high but vista is terrible. My card only cost £141 from cclonline.

were as the Nvidia 8800 ultra would cost around £400

check out other sites the single core 8800 is better than the 3870X2 in frame rate and higher resolutions. also the 3870X2 is not that better in benchmark test

really theres no point in the 3870X2 as the perfomance is only around 20% better

Nvidia will be way in the lead this year with the 89 series

if the 8800 ultra is on par with 3870X2 then the 8900 will smash ATI
