Tech ARP has just posted the ATI Radeon HD 4870 Overclocking Guide Rev. 2.0.
As we saw in our review of the ASUS EAH4870 Radeon HD 4870 graphics card, the Radeon HD 4870 was very much superior to high-end graphics cards like the NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX+. It was also about 2-2.5X faster than its predecessor, the Radeon HD 3870. Now, that is what you call a quantum leap ahead in performance!

Of course, this does not mean we are not going to try overclocking the card. Even though the Radeon HD 4870 will handily tackle practically every 3D game out there, there is still a dragon left to slay and that dragon is called Crysis. The Radeon HD 4870 delivered an average frame rate of 38 fps at 1600 x 1200 and 32 fps at 1920 x 1200. Very good but it would be nice to have better frame rates, wouldn't it? So, let's see how well the Radeon HD 4870 overclocks!

Now at Revision 2.0, here's a list of what we updated in the guide :
- Added a new page on the AMD GPU Clock Tool utility.
- Added the benchmark results of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 graphics card.
- Updated the results with Radeon HD 4870 overclocked to 820 MHz core and 1200 MHz memory.
