HIS 5870 Turbo X Crossfire Review
Published: 31st May 2010 | Source: HIS | Price: £350 each tbc |
It's cool to see that our synthetic results are matched in a gaming environment. The reference 5870 is once again spanked, and the single HIS Turbo X keeps up with the 5970. Truly impressive stuff. No wonder the Crossfire results are so good.
Just Cause 2
Just Cause 2 really has some amazing graphical effects and can bring even the highest system to its knees. The only cards that can give us the playable rate we like are the 5970 and, totally unsurprisingly, the HIS Turbo X Crossfire.
Need For Speed Shift
Wow. The Turbo X Crossfire clearly is the equivalent cracking an egg with a pneumatic hammer. Over 200 FPS maximum and deep into the hundreds at average. Suffice to say you can be at the back of the grid, surrounded by cars and building's but the Turbo Xs will just be twiddling their thumbs and wondering when they're gonna be tested.
Many an epic looking review has crashed an burnt on the rocks of Crysis Warhead and its ability to need more power than can be provided by almost anything.
Note I say almost. Enter HIS and the epic 5870 Turbo X. 78 Frames per second. Seventy-Eight. Even the minimum rate is more than we used to wish for as a maximum. Tempora mutanta.
