PowerColor Radeon HD 4870 Fails to Complete FurMark

Be the first to comment - What do you think?  Posted by JeGX - 2008/08/14 at 13:55

Categories: FurMark, Graphics Cards   Tags: , , , , ,

Expreview has done some tests on the new Powercolor product, the Radeon HD 4870:


One of these tests is FurMark and the HD 4870 fails to complete one minute of FurMark’s stability test. Failure symptoms are VPU recovery message, red LED (on the PCB) that shines…

For one thing, BIOS limited fan speed too low, that results in a higher GPU temperature; For the other thing, it gets through 3DMark Vantage, but fails to complete FurMark test. We believe it’s the BIOS setting that causes these problems and asked PowerColor for a new BIOS, but the answer was not available yet.

Sapphire Toxic Radeon HD 4850 Review

The biggest problem of Radeon HD 4850 is that this card reaches high temperatures (70 degrees celcius) even in idle (i.e. not loaded). So manufacturers decided to discard the stock cooler in favour of a better and more efficient cooler. In these reviews, the Sapphire’s solution, the Radeon HD 4850 Toxic edition, is analyzed. This Radeon features a Zalman heatpipe fan, providing more efficient cooling, quieter operation and more headroom for performance tuning.


Due to the better cooling solution, frequencies have been overclocked:

Toxic Radeon HD 4850 has the following features:
– GPU: RV770
– stream processors: 800
– ROPs: 16
– transistors: 956M
– memory 512Mb / 256-bit
– core clock: 675MHz
– memory clock: 1100Mhz
– DirectX 10 / OpenGL 2.1


However, the Sapphire cooling solution is one of the noisiest cards under idle: around 40db. But this cooler does its job by keeping GPU temperature at least 20 degrees lower than a standard Radeon HD 4850.
