For HD4870 X2 vs HD5870 comparison CLICK HERE


They are pretty much equal in performance..

But HD4870 X2 uses way more power,produces more heat and no DX11..


CHEERS..

I would really not recommend a 4870x2 vs a 5 or 6 series card.

The 4870x2 gobbles copious amounts of power, creates a ton of heat and the only drivers that still work properly for the card were released in May 2010.

Honestly, save yourself a lot of hassle and get a decent single GPU card!!

A 4870x2 (or 4870 crossfire) performs about on par with an HD5870 or HD6870. In games really optimized for dual GPUs it may keep up with an HD6950; in games with poor multi-GPU support it will lag significantly behind.

HD4870 ~ GTX260 ~ HD5750

The 4870 was on par with the 5770 on launch, but the 5770 and 5750's drivers have improved so they pull ahead now, and plug the space of the 4890 and GTX275.

If OP is not interested in DX11 so why he doesn't get the 4870 X2? It's still powerful card in DX10/9 mode, one of the best, and he will be able to play with highest possible settings in every game in DX10/9 with this card. Also if he can get it cheap so why not? Personaly I didn't saw any huge difference in graphics between DX10/9 and DX11 even if I'm sitting on two GTX560Ti. So if You want to grab it and it's fairly cheap just do it and enjoy

Please hahaha... I'm getting 15.4k with my GTX260 lightning, 5770 is getting about 12k in Vantage so You're wrong. I know synthetic benchmarks are not for comparing the cards but they're showing the full potential of every GPU on the market. Also comparing my GTX 260 Lightning which I'm using for PhysX with my friends HD 5770 in 90% of games, I'm getting higher fps than him. So don't compare GTX 260 with 4870 or 5770 because it's ridiculous.

This
I would suggest getting the best HD 6000 series or GTX 500 series card within your budget, unless you can get a pair of 4870X2's on the cheap and run Quad CFX

Also the Tom's hierarchy is not an exact science, it is just a very vague overview of how card stack up against eachother. It would take weeks of testing to test every card in every modern game to put them in an exact order.

Well, I got rid of my 4870x2 for a 560Ti and its the best decision I've made in ages! Most games still have the same performance, if not better where negative scaling was causing low FPS.

Vantage means nothing to most, so have fun with that.

When the 5770 came out the 260 216 was about 10% faster. I would say it's the opposite after driver optimizations at this point, for sure.

price is also a large factor here as well guys the 4870x2 can be had for around $120 (got mine for $110) and the 5870s are pushing $250 along with the 6950 and the $300 6970 so if he is on a budget or has other upgrades he would like to do the 4870x2 would be a great option.

As far as performance goes everyone is pretty much right tho its on par with a 5870 for around $100 less

I'm so confused right now..I am planning to upgrade my 4850 with the 6000 series or 5000 series but my friends says that there is this 4000 series that would also outperform the latest cards..
Hey bud i don't know about The 6950 (i have seen benchies that say its equal to a 5870).
What i do know is i had a 5870 until last week, it got RMA'd and my back up card is the 4870 X2, And if a game supports the crossfire well they will perform within 10% of each other, But that is a big if, the frame rates from my 5870 were far more consistant and would get a better minimum frame rate, its also alot cooler, and comsumes far less power.

But if your looking to turn up you frame rates, you won't see a big diffrence.

The above is true with my sig rig, so don't troll it dudes and dudetts
