Your posts are incredibly rude and uninsightful o_O. It was just a question, I was curious if someone knew off the top of their heads.

Hey another way to compare it. 5870's and 6950, very similar in performance maturing driver giving a very slight edge to the 6950. Kinda like the 5770. Say you have a 6950 and someone says hey, ill give you 2 5870's for it? Yeah, you probably got to do it.

you'll get more performance. But 4xxx lost driver support. and heat/power.

A 5770 is far better, you will lose DX11 capability, and even crossfiring the two 4870's you STILL will never get the performance of a single 5770.
In addition his 4870's came to him used. They are crap compared to the 5770. Please do NOT do this trade!
LOL!

Are you serious?

The 4870's would ROFLstomp a single 5770. They're on par with a 5870, and might even be slightly faster then your current 6870.

If you have no use for that 5770, then by all means, do the trade just to check out some epic, yet slightly older hardware.

Undoubtedly it's a better trade performance wise, as I believe that a 5770 is only slightly better than a 4870. Just be prepared to upgrade your PSU.

so other then DX11, the 4870 win. The power draw is sick though...

Also, the 4870 runs much hotter than the 5770. The heat output of the 4870 is dramatically more than the 5770. My 4870 CF were very toasty compared to a single 5770.

Guys, does DX11 even matter with HD 5770? Absolutely not.
It's not like you can even turn on tessellation on that thing without having FPS drop down the toilet.

yes & no

Yes: two 4870 in xfire will beat a single 5770.
No: no dx11, no future xfire w/ another 5770, more power consumption, more noise, and more heat.

If you need the extra fire power and don't mind doing without dx11, more noise, more heat, and more power consumption, then go for it.

personally I would stick with 5770, they do crossfire nicely

Actually a 4870 is better than a 5770, but not worth it due to its old tech and lack of DX11
