Default Visiontek Radeon HD 3870X2 overclocked edition review

The 3870X2 requires two PCI-Express 6-pin connectors which is actually better than the single 2900XT graphics card. Not only that but it features an amazing four DVI-Outputs so you should be more than covered for many spare monitors.

Once again we'll do a quick refresh of the RV670 GPU the cards are based on. Basically it they shrunk the die size of the 2900XT from 80nm to 55nm which got ride of the major problems of heat and power consumption. Additionally the memory bus was cut down from 512-bit to 256-bit with no performance penalty and in fact increased performance. 320 stream processors are still onboard and an upgrade is also there with the UVD (Universal Video Decoder) for your HD decoding, CPU offloading, pleasure. And let's not forget DirectX 10.1 support which Nvidia has yet to release a card which supports the next iteration of DX.
