Two R700s Churn-out X12515 in 3DMark Vantage

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.

AMD cpus aren't cheaper for the same performance levels anymore. Intel becomes an even better deal when you overclock. in short, Intel DOES have the better price/performance ratio in most cases.
x2

my buddy has a e6300 could it be? Well his core 2 duo regardless of which one it is runs at 1.8GHz out the box. He has it overclocked to 3.2 on air, and its quicker that m Athlon x2 at 3.4. :banghead:

Oh, and yes its cheaper than my x2!!!.

Like i said, it just for show, people like me or you, probably won't buy those. Only who look for best performence and doesn't care about the prices.
And AGAIN, those top-line are for SHOWS, those products are not main-lines.

EDIT: Do you think people that's going to buy 3, yes THREE GTX 280, at 600USD each, do you think those people care about how much it costs?
Same with with two 4870X2.
If a person would actually buy 3 GTX280's just to brag about it then they have no idea what money is :rolleyes: Can I afford 3 GTX280's...yeah, will I buy them...hell no. Why would people shell out this much cash on taped out parts that are just going to be replaced in 3 months. Paying nearly 2 grand for some cards just for bragging rights is childish beyond compare. If I can get similar performance out of 1 grand worth of cards then those bragging right seem even more outlandish. People with this much money tend to not waste it on foolish purchases either :shadedshu

All of you are talking about price perfomance ratio!
Amd cpu's has always been cheaper than intel! why do you buy intel chips which cost more?
you want the performance right?
also about 4870x2:
1) a few day ago we heard that 4870x2 score 5500 at extreme! that 12200 in crosfire seams unrealistic? what than means over 100% increase with the second card? this is stupid!
also check out the reviews in 4870 crossfire (2x4870). the addition of the second card almost sucks! you expect me to beleive that 4 chips will work effieciently? you must be kidding!
dude if you want to be a fanboy which you apparently are, go to some other forum and spew your negativity, we here don't accept it and your demeanor here is unacceptable.:slap::nutkick::mad:

No, no, you still asking yourself this :"Why would I buy this when I can spend less for better performence ratio". It's mean you still care about 1% inrease with the different of 200USD. :shadedshu
There is people going to spend on DDR3, that cost alot, just for 1-5% inrease in performece, or they just love latest technology.

Video cards & memory are different. Right now the price of DDR3 is coming back to earth in light that DDR3 hardly outperforms DDR2. But when it comes to video cards, both mainstream companies are stuck in their 2 different architectures. Both work but one obviously costs more to put into practice than the other. There just migh be 0.025% of video card buffs out there that buys the best based on a company's best whether its a $600 or $1000. There are also ppl out there that don't use logic. They are called fanbois.

This thread is about the 2 4870x2s busting vantage's ass. Not how 3 GTX280s can too. No one on this forum is in the realm stupidity that allows them to think that spending $2000 instead of $1000 on the same performance is great. Bring it back down to earth with the GTX26o & 4870. They have relatively the same performance but the 4870 is $150 less. Only a nvidiot would think a GTX260 would be a better buy.
