GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 vs ATI Radeon HD 4870 1GB

Be the first to comment - What do you think?  Posted by JeGX - 2008/10/06 at 11:20

What to choose between NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 and ATI Radeon HD 4870 1Gb? In a word, if you need antialiasing in high resolution, the Radeon HD 4870 1Gb is the right choice. if you don’t need AA, choose the GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 because performances without AA are better. In the side of power consumption and noise, the GeForce has the advantage.

Sapphire Radeon HD 4870 Toxic Review

Sapphire’s Radeon HD 4870 Toxic edition features the Vapor-X heat pipe cooler based on Sapphire’s Vapor Chamber Technology. Vapor-X makes it possible a cool 43°C at idle and a 65°C under load. This Radeon HD 4870 is powered by the RV770 GPU (with 800 shaders processors), has 512Mb of GDDR5 graphics memory with a 256-bit interface and has some overclocked frequencies (memory: 1000MHz, GPU: 780MHz).


Read the complete test here: Sapphire Radeon HD 4870 Toxic Video Card

In conclusion, my final recommendation on the Sapphire Radeon HD 4870 Toxic graphics card is very good but at the moment it’s nearly impossible to procure. On its own accord the 4870 Toxic would occasionally reach the level of performance seen from the GeForce GTX 260, but never completely dominate over it.


ATI Radeon HD 4870 1024Mb Review

This Radeon HD 4870 (RV770 GPU) with 1Gb GDDR5 of graphics memory can be seen as the answer to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 (see here and here). And from the tests, the Radeon HD 4870 1Gb is a little faster than a regular GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 but has to compete fiercely with the pre-overcloked versions of the GTX 260 Core 216 (like BFG and eVGA).

The new Catalyst 8.8 seem to have fixed a Crossfire bug in OpenGL with Radeon HD 4000. A member of oZone3D.Net forums has reported that his two Radeon HD 4870 in Crossfire work now perfectly with FurMark.

If you have a SLI of GeForce 8/9 or GTX 200, please tell us how FurMark works?
