ATI Radeon HD 3870X2 1GB previewed

Posted on Tuesday, January 22 2008 @ 17:19:31 CET by


InsideHW is one of the first English sites to take an early look at the R680 graphics card:

"Just as we predicted some time ago that the Radeon HD 2600XT Dual is going to open the portal to the multi-GPU development, it is coming true. The very next step ATI has made shows a huge advancement compared to the one-month old newborn. Ladies and gentlemen, we present you with ATI Radeon HD 3870X2 graphics card. For now, this is the best graphics card in the entire market and the most complete choice one can get for his/her money. As the author of these lines would gladly carry this baby home, the award we will give this card is fully deserved."

Check it out over here. Here's a quick look at the performance on a Intel Q6600 system @ 3.33GHz, Foxconn Mars motherboard, 2x 1GB TwinMOS DDR2 800MHz memory, Windows XP SP2 and Catalyst 8.1 drivers:
