    AMD, Austin have managed a benchmark score of X12515 in the 3DMark Vantage benchmark using two Radeon HD4870 X2 cards in CrossfireX, a feat that takes three GeForce GTX 280 cards in 3-way SLI to achieve. The R700 boards were clocked at 778 MHz core, while the GDDR5 memory was clocked at 980 MHz QDR (effectively 3.92 GHz). This brings the total on-board video bandwidth to a stellar 250.8 GBps.

    holy shit. There is still MUCH better value for performance in this case.... two HD4870X2s are cheaper than three GTX280s by a fair bit.

    AMD really are on a roll. Considering only nvidia chipsets support CF, well..... Nvidia is going to go flying downhill

    Yeah impressive that they could beat three GTX280's, which are still single cored, and are running in the less-efficient tri-sli. AMD is really moving its way up the ladder. :laugh:

    Look at it this way: 2x $500 equal 3x $650. ;)

    Nvidia hasn't come out with a dual processor card for this generation, so benchmarks like this mean jack shit.

    Who cares about what the card is made of, or how many GPU's it has? As long as it performs on par with an expensive monolithic GPU and remains cheap?
    p_o_s_pc, Shurakai, mdm-adph and 2 others say thanks.

    I was wrong my x score is x6282

    GPU 6052
    CPU 40461

    two r700 together is twice as fast.

    I am so glad that AMD is finally coming back to the scene! 4870 X2 kicks ass very hard! If it`s under $450, that will be my next card.

    Ture, but for now the 9800GTX cards still fly with whats on the market with vantage.

    So how fast will the nVidia 280 x2 card be?

    Don't you guys think AMD will get spanked again as soon as the x2 version of the 280 comes out?

    Until that happens, they hold the crown. With NVIDIA over-reacting to the RV770 (by slashing prices many fold) and the UMAP, the message that goes out is that it will be a while before NV can counter the RV770 / R700 threat using "something new".

    Sorry but nvidia doesnt always have to make dual cards. You're talking about a card which uses 400W in total. I dont think anyone would want that in their system. is there a moral obligation against dual GPU vs single GPU? GPUs arent like CPUs mate on paper nvidia's GTX280 should be raping the HD4870, BADLY.

    remember one GTX280 core uses 200W of power. the GTX280 CANNOT take much higher temps than what it runs at, due to the sheer size (technically its a fragile card in contrast to the RV770 thanks to the massive package). 2 GTX280 in close proximity jammed into one slot is suicide.

    if nvidia decide to phase out the 9800/9600s, that will be their doom.

    ....and they can/t becouse TDP of 280GTX is on level of x2 4870 ;) so 4870 X2 has TDP 250W, 280GTX GX2 would be TDP 450W kapis?
    2 ATI chps size equals one size of nvidia chip
