VisionTek Radeon HD 4870 X2 DirectX 10.1 900250 2GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Nope

Cons: Nope

Other Thoughts: Look at the specifications people, the 4870 cars only have 800sp's, the 4870 X2 therefore only has 1600sp, this states that it has 3200sp. I highly doubt the validity of this product and would simply attribute its apperance on Newegg as a fluke of some sort.

Pros: Hey, i bought this card more than a year ago but forgot to add a review.. anyways... i love these cards, although most people will scold me for buying two of these cards which have less performance than a similarly priced, but single card solution... however read the cons...

Cons: when i bought this card, and when i checked this cards' specs, i thought i would be getting a higher-end pci-express x16 1.0 take note: pci-exp 1.0!!, i had a limited board... but the specs on the egg were that this card had a 2000mhz memory clock, 2ghz!!! but when i received it, i was disappointed to find that it was only 1000 mhz, come on newegg, HOW DO YOU MISS 1 WHOLE GHERTZ!?!?!?!?! not even with extreme OC could i get it to go to 2 ghertz, wth... anywho ill be upgrading to another (more expensive) SLI setup in three months anyway, but do your research people, i get bogged down in Supcom, the 7900GS does better, and thats a whole generation older!!!

Other Thoughts: *disgruntled mumble*

Pros: These cards are GREAT!!! they may run a tad hot... but they add an awesome amount of performance to my system. i came from an overclocked x1300 and the difference is like night and day, 3dmark05 went from 1,500 to 9,750 when i changed over.

Cons: the heat issue, idling at 70-80 deg. Celsius is not a good thing people, especially with two of them.

Other Thoughts: mine actually came under clocked by about a gigahertz, and it hurt the performance substantially, but now they are happy (and hot) as can be. blows away company of heroes compared to my x1300. sys. specs: AMD athlon 3800+ single core
OC to 2.7, 1 (soon to be 2) gigs of ddr400, 2 8600gts in sli, 600 watt psu, 2 232 gb wd caviar in raid 0. all built two and a half years ago (minus the two cards) for under $700
