Futuremark tests


Just like the rest of the HD 4870 pack in 3DMark 06, XFX HD 4870 isn’t having the greatest time competing versus the GTX 260.

Vantage tests report XFX’s more noticeable advantage over the reference card, but the GTX 260 once again swoops in and takes the throne with higher than 10% advantage over all the RV770 cards.

World in Conflict

Far Cry 2

Far Cry 2 proves that 1GB of memory on XFX HD 4870 XXX card is a wise investment. Compared to the HD 4870 512MB, XFX scored more than 75% better results at the highest resolution with filters on. As far as Far Cry 2 goes, XFX HD 4870 runs neck and neck with the GTX 260.

Left 4 Dead


Left 4 Dead is a walk in the park for the HD 4870, and we see that XFX dominates this test all the way to the highest resolution, where the GTX 260 manages to snatch the lead. Still, XFX managed to defeat the GTX 260 a couple of times by margins higher than 10%.
