Default 3870x2 Reviews

Some of these are reposts, but I thought I'd compile all the brand new reviews into 1 thread.


Anandtech uses a EVGA nForce 780i SLI, ATI: 8-451-2-080123a
Computer Base using Asus P5W DH Deluxe (Intel i975X) with Cat 8-451-2-080123a
Hardware Canucks using Asus Blitz Extreme (P35) with Cat 8.451.2-080
Hot Hardware using a EVGA nForce 680i SLI, Cat ATI Catalyst Bets v8.451
PCPOP using ASUS Maximus Formula (X38) and Cat 8.1 (no indication of updated drivers)
TechPowerUp using a Gigabyte P35C-DS3R Intel P35, Catalyst 8.12 v8.451.2
Tech Report using Gigabyte GA-X38-DQ6 with Cat 8.451.2-080116a-057935E
Tom's Hardware using Asus P5E3 Deluxe (X38) with Cat Asus P5E3 Deluxe (X38)


A sample of some benchies...looking very good as an 8800 contender as you can see:

I'm gonna have to see the price go down a bit first before I consider it, but bravo ATI for showing that you are without a doubt not going to stop competing with nvidia.

^^^ From anandtech, the Intel/Nvidia house. Odds are they were run with the older drivers, too.

Either way, the 3870 X2 is a great card, and shows that ATI is finally getting their head out of the sand.

Just wait a minute, any website that don't show the result that you want is automatically an Nvidia biased website according to you.

The results from some of the other reviews were very similar to Anandtech

Just look at the benchmarks from Techreport and compare it to Anandtech
AMD's Radeon HD 3870 X2 video card - The Tech Report - Page 6

Is techreport an Intel/Nvidia source as well ?

And Anandtech was using the latest driver, 8.451

Is 3870 x2, like dualcore, 2 GPUs? What differences does it have from the 3870.
