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.
No surprise here with the HD4870X2 taking the lead in everything we threw at it. Interesting there is not double the performance of the 4870 despite the card having 4870 cores and double the memory. The HD4850XXX performed very well until the resolution and image quality was increased. The 4870X2 certainly showed it's prowess at the maximum resolutions, perhaps best exemplified in 3DMark 05 scoring over 8000 marks more than it's closest rival the HD4890XXX, which in turn outpaced it's forbear, the HD4870XXX.
Let's see if this transfers over to our real world gaming benchmarks.
