Hexus published a review of the Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 4870 X2 2GB video card based on the new ATI HD 4870 X2 AMD announced today.
Quote from the review: "Our performance evaluation shows that the HD 4870 X2 only comes into its own when the resolution is cranked up to 2,560x1,600, along with serious image quality; anything lower and it's sat there, twiddling bemused transistors. Such is the performance lead at the WQXGA setting, that it's over 60% faster than the previous champ, GeForce GTX 280, in both Race Driver: GRID and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. A 50% lead in Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts and 30 per cent advantage in Enemy Territory: Quake Wars is nothing to sniff at either."
