Default Sapphire HD4870 512Mb Review

The Sapphire HD4870 didn't disappoint giving nigh identical results to the previous HD4870 we reviewed, as well as almost matching and at times beating the GTX260 in every benchmark we threw at it. Because of this, we didn't quite get the WOW factor that we had with the previous review. Obviously this is not a fault of the Sapphire version, far from it as not only did it match the previous HD4870, it served to emphasize the tremendous improvements ATI have put in place with the 4000 series of GPU's compared to their NVidia counterparts. While the GTX280 still has the performance advantage the HD4870 costs a fraction of the amount and on occasion even beats the 280's sibling, the GTX260, which again is more expensive. Bang per buck the only card that can touch it at the time of writing this review is the HD4850, however, the faster HD4870 is still an extraordinary buy and the card I would choose at this price point. The Sapphire HD4870 is without doubt one of the fastest cards out there and for the price it is in a league of it's own.
