Default XFX Radeon HD 4870 X2 2GB video card review

Unlike many of XFX's other offerings, this particular board uses both AMD's reference clock speeds and cooling solution, and as we've seen similarly specified boards from other vendors in the past this allows us to investigate a couple of additional angles for this review. Firstly, we'll be taking a look at how performance has changed between AMD's last graphics driver of 2008, Catalyst 8.12, and their first offering for this year, Catalyst 9.1 - In theory there have been some decent changes made to improve performance on multi-GPU configurations in particular, so it should be interesting to see how these latest drivers fare.

As well as looking into driver performance, we'll also be taking this opportunity to briefly discuss XFX's warranty and support offerings, a side of their products that we rarely mention but one that XFX themselves seem very proud of.
