ASUS HD 4870 X2 (EAH4870X2) 2GB PCI-E

3DMark 05 / 06 / Vantage Results

3DMark is a popular synthetic gaming benchmark used by many gamers and overclockers to gauge the performance of their PC's. All 3DMark runs were performed a total of 5 times, with the highest and lowest results being removed and an average calculated from the remaining 3 results.
With 3DMark05 getting a bit long in the tooth it's quite common to see GPU's with raw power taking over those with a greater feature set. Of course, neither card in this test is lacking in features, but the sheer power behind the two GPU's on the 4870X2 allows it to leap ahead of the GTX280 across all resolutions.
3DMark06 shows much the same result, with the GTX280 being completely annihilated by the 4870X2 particularly as the resolution is increased and anti aliasing applied.
Back when the GTX280 was first released, it was considered to be quite a monster when it came to benchmarking on FutureMark's DX10 based testing suite - 3DMark Vantage. However, ATI/AMD have certainly got this one covered too, and the sheer power of two HD4870's strapped to one PCB allow the 4870X2 to kick ass and take no hostages.

Mr. Smith
Would have been nice to include the gx2 too, that way my decision making would have been easier lol.

Sweet review mate, glad you updated the testbed and went with the QX, whoever suggested that is clearly awesome

I get paid in 11 days; I'm toying with one of these, a velociraptor and an e8600 and a 50" samsung series 6 Quote
