Sapphire brings the power of graphics ‘supercomputing’ to enthusiasts with their 100251SR Radeon HD 4870 X2 card. With 1600 (800 x 2) Stream Processing Units, the card delivers unapproachable graphics performance for complicated 3D rendering or gaming.
The Sapphire 100251SR Radeon HD 4870 X2 card has 2GB of high-throughput GDDR5 memory, clocked at 750MHz and the GPU core is clocked at 900MHz. Supporting AMD CrossFireX technology, the high-speed connectors on each card allow two cards to be used together for enhanced performance when installed in a CrossFireX compatible motherboard.
The Radeon HD 4870 X2 incorporates the latest ATI Avivo HD Technology for enhanced video display, and a second generation built-in UVD 2 (Unified Video decoder 2) for the hardware accelerated decoding of Blu-ray and HD DVD content for VC-1, H.264 and MPEG-2 codecs, reducing CPU load. Via the included DVI-to-HDMI adapter, this card supports multi-channel audio formats (up to 7.1) and combines audio and video output on a single cable for direct connection to an HDMI-ready display. Support for DirectX10.1 ensures optimal compatibility with all DirectX10.1 applications, and enables stunning 3D graphics and shading effects in the latest games.
- TeraScale Graphics EngineThe dual TeraScale engines combines 2.4 teraFLOPs of graphics horse power, 1600 stream processors and next generation GDDR5 memory, so you can enjoy the high resolutions and seamless frame rates previously only available with dual-card systems.
- Full Microsoft DirectX 10.1 SupportThe DirectX 10.1 GPU with full Shader Model 4.1 support delivers unparalleled levels of graphics realism and film-quality effects.
- Enhanced Anti-Aliasing and Anisotropic FilteringEnhanced anti-aliasing (AA) and anisotropic filtering (AF) smooth jagged edges and create striking graphics with unparalleled realism so you can max out the settings of the most demanding next-generation games.
- PCI Express 2.0 InterfaceThe PCI Express 2.0 x16 interface delivers an ultra-high data rate of up to 16 GB/s, and is backward compatible with PCI Express x16 (PCI-E 1.0), so you can upgrade the graphics of your existing system with the Sapphire 100251SR Radeon HD 4870 X2.
