HIS 5870 Turbo  Crossfire Review

Test Setup

2x HIS HD5870 Turbo X
Corsair Dominator GT @ 1600MHz
ASUS Rampage 3 Extreme
Intel i7 930 @ 3.6GHz
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit
Noctua NH-D14 with Arctic MX-3

3D Mark Vantage

Futuremarks 3D Mark Vantage is in its death throws as there will soon be a newer version out. For the time being though it still gives us a score we can all compare against.

There is absolutely no question that the Turbo X is king here. Incredible performance.



Moving on to the High benchmark the difference is even more astounding. Sure it's two GPUs, but the 5970 is too and it's thoroughly spanked.


Unigine tests the Direct X 11 performance, and performance in general. If this was a boxing match the referee would step in. The Turbo X crossfire setup is so comprehensively bests everything else it's untrue.

Even the single card performance is fantastic with it beating the GTX480 in this particular test.
