ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2 review

AMD has proven itself, successfully launching the Radeon HD 3870 X2 on schedule, and perhaps even more important than that, having actual products on retail shelves immediately.

The ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2 is essentially two Radeon HD 3870 GPUs stuck together on the same PCB. The GPUs use a PCI Express 1.1 bridge to communicate in much the same way Crossfire ATI cards would. However, because the X2 is meant to be a 'transparent' single card solution, it doesn't require a supporting motherboard, and in fact it opens the possibility for quad-Crossfire using two of these graphics cards.

this why we need ati and nvidia to bash each other, quality products come out at lower prices

didnt happen yet, in fact, competition between ATI and Nvidia, prices just kept on rising. I have yet to see prices drop between these 2.

I don't know where you've been but I haven't seen the $700+ higher end consumer cards in a while.

Read the HardOCP review (sorry..evaluation) .. In my opinion it's the only reliable one out there, and flatley disagrees with almost every other one.

Real situation tests are the only way to go when benchmarks are being cheated in such wide a manner.
