Quad 3870 X2 scores 100FPS+ at COD4 2650x1600 4X FSAA

Call of Duty 4 in action


We had a chance to spend some time with two Radeon 3870 X2 cards and we had access to the 3870 X2 Crossfire X driver. We were told that Call of Duty 4, probably the best first person shooter ever (at least to yours truly) can run at over 100FPS at 2650x1600 4X FSAA, but you would need two Radeon 3870 X2s to achieve it. Of course, we played on a 30-inch Dell display, what else?

We sat behind the machine, set the resolution and settings and we started playing. We were shocked to see that the FPS count on this Beta driver goes between 65, the lowest we’ve seen in a single scene, all the way to 140FPS.

We are, of course, talking about 2650x1600 4X FSAA settings, and on average you end up with about 80FPS. Remember, this is not the final driver and we were told that the final CrossfireX driver will resurface in March.

Two of these cards will cost about €650, which is not that bad as it will offer you an incredibly great gaming experience; and last year you had to spend about twice as much to get the same thing.

Here are a few pictures of this magnificent experience.
