Sapphire Radeon HD 3870 X2 ed
Posted by newsbot on June 03rd 2008



So why not just get two 3870s and rub a little CrossFire into your box? There are two reasons, really. For most people, that's just not an option. Dual-PCI-Express can easily tag a Benjamin onto the price of a motherboard, and, in Micro-ATX land, it's a mythical beast that visits overclockers in their dreams. And there's another thing: regular 3870s get the lower-binned GPUs--the faster-clocking chips go into the X2s. But, lastly, the 3870 promises something else:tri- and quad-CrossFireX. But that begs the initial question:now that the release is behind us, how much awesome stuck to the HD 3870 X2, and how much washed away?
