Tech Report Review: AMD's Radeon HD 4870 X2

Scott Wasson Writes:

"This should be fairly painless. We've already previewed the Radeon HD 4870 X2 for you, and today that card is becoming official and available for purchase. To mark the occasion, we've wrangled not one but two of these dual-GPU monsters and paired them up via CrossFire. We've also assembled a killer's row of GeForce GTX cards for a comprehensive look at the next generation of multi-GPU madness. Can we set a new record for power draw at the wall socket? Oh, I think you know we can."

this card it amazing and will sap and thing your PSU will give it.
i'm just wondering if this over heats a lot, the thing is huge like a tank. that heatsink in there must weigh a ton.

well if you can get most of your money back them if i was you sell them but i cant see a massive difference in performance for a crossfirex or the 4870X2 usually they perform on a simular level but we will see some benchmarks soon so who knows

The 2gb 4850x2 looks promising judging by the 4850 Crossfire results.
