We’ve spent the last few weeks familiarising ourselves with the architecture behind the hardware. Not enjoying the view. We’ve got plenty of pics inside too! Nvidia’s GT GPU arrived just a few days ago – we dive deep into the architecture to find out what’s changed inside the chip. Are you annoyed at some of the support? So combining these factors can make the overall products less expensive.

I look forward to getting two of these babies and setting them up for crossfire mode. It’s much cheaper to work with memory and less expensive to integrate.

That’s why we measure the dBa level. Previous page 01 Anyone who would rather an nvidia is out of their mind. Read on to find out Above you can can observe the thermal envelope during a quick stress test.

This stock clocked Radeon HD is cooled passively, meaning it has no fans tool it down.

We’ll start off by showing you some tests we have done on overall power consumption of the PC. AMD makes no official power supply recommendation for a single X2, although its Web site does suggest at least a watt power supply for two standalone Radeon HD cards.

I’m doing a little try-out today with noise monitoring, so basically the test we do is extremely subjective.

Looking at it from a performance versus wattage point of view, the power consumption is really good with the new 55nm products. We’ve spent the last few weeks familiarising ourselves with the architecture behind the hardware. I would hope that ATI can keep up their lead over nvidia with this or another series of card, but that doesn’t seem likely with their comparative lack of market share Reply.

Think of Supertiling, it’s a popular form of rendering. The ebta A is added to indicate the correction that was made in the measurement.

We’ve spent the last few weeks familiarising ourselves with the architecture behind the hardware. No additional software in the form of full games though it’s sufficient to get is hooked up and started. Driver support is also seamless; you don’t have to enable CrossFire or fiddle with any settings, the card just works.

The laundry list of fixes are as follows:.

ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2

So overall I’m happy with the noise levels of the product. Not that we need it at this time though Let’s have a look at the temperatures these cards produce.

Why is this subjective, you ask? Have you installed Vista yet? Today, Nvidia extends its lead on the giant graphics mountain with the announcement of GeForce Ultra. Join us in this article where we’ll tell you all about its performanc Brett Thomas sure is, but this one isn’t something he blames on Microsoft.

Read on to find out why he’s not enjoying the view. We suspect you wouldn’t want to go any lower than watts or so for a single X2, especially if you paired it with a quad-core CPU. That’s a lot of shader power guys!

Pretty brilliant, we’ll neta you some results later on. The only other thing we’ll add is that the X2 is one of the heaviest 3D cards we’ve encountered. Observe closely the difference between the and the X2. Anyone who would rather an nvidia is out of their mind.
