[FUD] ATI's HD 4800 series can mix with HD 3870 - Page 3

post #21 of 68
hmmm if all of this is true, and if I can put a 4850 with my 3850, I should probably go and buy a new motherboard before I grab the 4850

Excellent news, I've been wondering this since the 4xxx series was announced months back. I didn't expect it to be true, but it seemed like something ATi might do

That score is pretty damn nice for 1920x1200 with 8x AA.
Huh?

Personally I like to see what they got at 1920x1200 and 8x AA, it makes my current card seem extremely pathetic (although they have the advantage of 3 cards...), and shows that they scale pretty well to increase in resolution and AA

These 4800-series cards are looking better by the minute. I might be picking one of these babies up when they launch. I'll probably have to sell my current gfx card to do so.

Backward compatibility? Schweet.

I wonder if there's any bugs in actual gaming though

I wonder if you'll be able to crossfire a 3870X2 and a 4870X2?
