AMD has since released even more graphics cards, including the competitive Radeon HD and , but it still lacked a high end offering. Probably the most important is its PCI Express 2.

ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2: 2 GPUs 1 Card, A Return to the High End
This means that the perception of noise is not at all equal at every frequency. Log in Don’t have an account?
Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook’s That’s why we measure the dBa level. I look forward to getting two of these babies and setting them up for crossfire mode.
We’ve spent the last few weeks familiarising ourselves with the architecture behind the hardware. As we alluded to earlier, the fact that the X2 features two GPUs on a single board means that it doesn’t rely on chipset support to enable its multi-GPU functionality: We take an in-depth look at what DX10 adds to the gaming and graphical experience, from geometry shaders to resources to render targets.
AMD and Nvidia are battling against each other again in what could prove to be one of the great wars in the 3D graphics industry.
Today, Nvidia extends its lead on the giant graphics mountain with the announcement of GeForce Ultra. A specific circuit is added to the sound level meter to correct its reading in regard to this concept.
PowerColor bundled the card with the following: 38770×2 reason for the delay was that over the weekend, before the launch on the 23rd, AMD was able to fix a number of driver issues that significantly impacted performance with the X2.
A pretty interesting concept which we’ll look deeply into in March. We measured the PC at 40 dBa which is really good. Are you annoyed at some of the support?
ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2
AMD and Nvidia battle for mid-range supremacy. The Radeon series has always lagged behind NVIDIA when veta came to performance under Crysis, and with the old driver Crysis was a black eye on an otherwise healthy track record for the X2.
We find out how the company’s new part performs across eight games and three resolutions. Sapphire decided that 3870c2 wasn’t happy with the Radeon HD ‘s standard cooler and decided to make something better. The mobile world might finally get exciting again in Nvidia GeForce Ultra.
Not only is it less powerful and less value for money, but nvidia is really stingy about replacement of defects, not to mention they don’t have one reliable third party manufacturer, in the face of ATI’s 2 really good ones Sapphire and HIS. Looking at it from a performance versus wattage point of view, the power consumption is really good with the new 55nm products.
There’s more to the Radeon HD X2 rather than merging two GPUs on one board, bridging them see 3870d2 as an internal x16 PCIe bus connection for data communication ; no they changed another thing or two.

Great sound, but it’s trapped in Apple’s world. 3870d2 power for the simple expedient of more GPUs. What GPU will sit underneath that hood, Polaris? And instead of kicking the ball we use the water flow to get the ball from point A to B. So combining these factors can make the overall products less expensive.
You will then hear the fan and dBa levels will hover at roughly 45 dBa, which is still quite normal. Next to that smaller die-size, AMD also incorporated ATI 38770×2 known from their mobile products into the GPU which seems to do wonders in power consumption as it can regulate voltage levels and clock speeds on the fly. Driver support is 3870xx2 seamless; you don’t have to enable CrossFire or fiddle with any settings, the card just works.
It’s good to see an honest company making some headway in the market. In the case of this silicon, the soccer field is the RV, water would be the 387×2 flowing through the silicon.
