The guys over at PConline.com.cn have managed again to be the first to post a full review of a graphics card that should be available later next month, the ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2 1GB (R680). First thing you'll notice is that the card beats NVIDIA's GeForce 8800 Ultra in every Futuremark benchmark and almost every game by quite a margin. Have a good time reading the full story here.

It's hard to load the pages, but from the only one I saw so far, the 8800 Ultra beats the hell out of it in Lost Planet.

wow! Very surprising. I wasn't expecting the performance to be as much as that. Well done ATI/AMD.

However, I worried about the price - I think they should sell it at < £250/€350 which would be the top end of most peoples (enthusiasts) budget. > £300/€400 (which it looks like it is) & your budgeting for the rich only & a niche market.

Also the HD3870 is new, while the Ultra has been around a while. A month or two and the 3870x2 beats the Ultra in Crysis.

All I see is a brand new high-end dual-GPU video card that barely cracks 40 FPS at a low resolution with NO AA.

Weak. lol

Until you realize that the drivers aren't anywhere near mature, and it's still faster then the nVidia offering in the same price range.

I wouldn't be suprised if there is a 20 - 40% gain with a patch and/or new drivers. Give it a little time, the card isn't even in retail yet!

I won't argue about the drivers.

A brand new, high-end, dual-GPU video card, even if only $50, getting just 1 frame more than an old, single-GPU card is still weak. Excellent price/performance ratio, but I was truly expecting more as far as pure performance, even with launch drivers.

When a card beats out another card in everything else... it's drivers. I'm sure they are working on it.

I'd love a card that just works. It looks like with this one if the title doesn't traditionally do well with Crossfire you are going to be left with slightly worse than a single HD 3870 result. See; WiC, Crysis, and Lost Planet. I bet it blows in DiRT too. It will probably do fine in Crysis on the DX9 path. I know my 3850s do.

I am going to hold onto my money for now. Hopefully someone will deliver a single GPU that can beat my GTX well soon. It's 661|2040 with a 1600 shader clock.

lets see how it goes. It seems fast in DX9 and weak in DX10.

Like everything else! We literally haven't seen a real high-end DX10 card from either side. I think this card has the greatest potential out of all of them though.

Could someone possibly give a quick run down of the results as the website does not load at all here at work.

I am seriously interested in one of these as something new to play with.

Benchmarks don't show how the card is really is goin to proform in really world gaming, this is ATI high end card, when nvidia 9800GTX is not far off, like the saying goes 2 is better than 1, i would guess this would beat the 8800Ultra because it has 2 GPU working on one thing with more memory, would be a good card if not priced to high, but i will fall behind Nvidia's 9800GX2 in muti GPU cards. my 8800GTS 512MB comes like 100Points off the Ultra in 3DMark 06 but sure does not proform like a Ultra lol.

actually on the more memory thing... doesnt crossfire (and SLI) only share GPU power? wouldnt this really be a 512MB card for most purposes?

Im not sure i think that is only when you uses 2 card not a single card with 2 GPU's, because think it work like 2 GPU's running off the same memory thats 1GB, does any one know if windows it picks the card up as one or two card, and do you have to turn crossfire/SLI on in the video cards control panel?
