Review: Non-reference Vapor-X cooling and higher clocks


Testbed

Motherboard: MSI P45D3 Platinum ( Provided by: MSI );
Processor: Intel Core 2 QX9770 Extreme edition na 3.6GHz ( Provided by: Intel );
Memory: Corsair Dominator 12800 7-7-7-24 ( Provided by: Corsair);
HDD: WD VelociRaptor 300G 10,000RPM ( Provided by: SmoothCreation );


Vantage tests

Sapphire Toxic HD 4870’s GPU is clocked 4% higher than reference, and although Vantage tests confirm this by giving 4-5% better results compared to reference, it still isn’t enough to beat the GTX 260. It is however, enough to beat the HD 4870 1GB.

Gaming

Far Cry2

This game needs no introduction and you know it’s got a serious taste for frame buffer size. Toxic HD 4870 does very good at all resolutions when filters are off, but when high resolutions are coupled with filters we see that HD 4870 1GB or GTX 260 have a much better time coping. All the resolutions are playable, except for the highest one 2560x1600 with filters on.
