We similar a beneficial combo here at Hardware, and we accept a novel 1 to add to the list. Right up there with peanut butter and jelly, Mario and Luigi, milk and cookies, we'd similar to add double GPUs and factory overclocks. If you are a veritable reader, you likely already know we are fans of double GPU video cards, and we accept a strong affinity for factory overclocked video cards as well. And when a company mixes the two, that's only all right in our book.
So, it becomes without ordering that we were stimulated to assure out Diamond's overclocked Radeon HD 4870 X2 XOC graphics card . As you likely already know, the Radeon HD 4870 X2 employs 2 RV770 GPUs, each of which is balanced by one gigabyte of GDDR5 storage (for a full of two gigabyte frame buffer storage). The mention GPU clock
speed for the 4870 X2 is 750 MHz, and the reference storage speed is 900 MHz. We are happy to report that Diamond boosted the XOC's clocks to 800 MHz and 950 MHz, severally, constructing this 1 of the quickest 4870 X2 cards we've considered in the Hardware labs.
Talking of the labs, we accepted the XOC for a spin with our benchmark suite and stoned it against a mention 4870 X2, an NVIDIA GePower GTX 285, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295, and a pair of GePower GTX 285s in SLI. Read on to assure how the XOC fared in the equivalence.Afterwards we've extended the 4870 X2 and the powerful RV770 GPU various other times here at Hardware in several articles, we won't repetition ourselves again here. Rather, we'll invite you to assure out a pair of our articles if you require to learn about the engineering behind the 4870 X2 and the RV770.
