    the advantage over two 3850 crossfired cards is it has 1 gb of ddr3 and a 512bit interface and is faster, it is a 3870 in everything but name.

    Can you show me some in-game benchmarks where it can compare to a 9800GTX. I'm aware that in synthetic benchmarks it's fine- but I cannot see alot of real world performance to back this up. This isn't meant to be a cynical post - I genuinely want to see if this card can perform to standards in real-world games with a MINIMUM framerate not the average.

    it's too new no I cannot. Apparently in the reviews, the two I posted ,they mention the 3870x2 and 3850x2 improving greatly because of driver updates and even refer back to a old review when the 3870x2 first came out and was kinda a dog.
    theonetruewill says thanks.

    Interesting how the "Crysis" benches are showing Call of Juarez.
