GPUs, Graphics Cards, and Drivers
It's not new, so I post here:D
Although 5750 and 5770 are impressive in power consumption
but seems 4870 are somewhat better in price (HKD ~$950 vs ~$1260, approx. USD$ 121/$161)
So I get one:D
It's also come from Triplex as the post below...
Thought you guys might be interested.

Does anyone know the ETA of 5870-2gb & 5870x2-4gb ?
Well hello there!
In doing research for building my new rig, I've noticed that if you choose to go with ATI for my main cards, it's said that I can have an nvidia card for Physx. From what I've read, this option is available on Windows 7 only. My question is how does that work? For example,...
as you know, now I let my 9800GT as PPU in w7 with the PhysX mod patch from Liandri / THETA, 9800 GT did do PPU job in Batman 1.1, now I can get 90 avg fps in the benchmark (1680x1050 all max no AA PhysX normal), compared with 16 avg fps in the benchmark with only 4850 single card.
I was wondering if any one knew when the non reference 5870's will be released? Or if any one has previous data on older cards between OE release and non-reference release.
I'm looking for this information because I'm waiting for a quiet/cool card like sapphires the 4890 vapor-x solution.
I am buying one of these babies early november hopefully if stocks are somewhat better than now here in the cold frostbitten sweden :D
I have no idea which brand to pick, usually I don't care to be honest but this will be my reference card for my reference sytem when writing reviews (mainly CPUs...
So a while ago I replaced my dual 2900XTs with a single 4670 for silence, and everything has been hunky dory until now. Last night I fired up Counter Strike Source for the first time in ages and started by maxing out the resolution and detail. I did the video stress test and got 140fps - more than...
Hi any of you know if with 2x 5870s the powerplay efectivly disables 2º gpu or will this only hapend in soon to come 5870x2 ?
Thats right people, im probably late to the partly but the new opencl beta4 driver is able to run nvidia physx ect.... there for no need for any nvidia GPU as a dedicated part ect..
but there is still along way to go for optimiztion wich will come very soon.
i tested out vantage and one of...
I just got a XFX 4890 vanilla version as an upgrade to my 8800gt.
I figured it should do 19 - 20 thousand 3dmarks compared to 14,000 with my 8800gt.
So, I run it with the new card and only get 14,000 with the 4890:confused:
The games look much better, but I am stumped about the 3dmark score.
Hello there Guys, I am pretty sure that this question ask been asked so many time, but I just wanted to get your thoughts on this topic. Yes I am a nvidia FanBoy, but lately they are doing alot of crazy stuff. I current have nvidia 8800GT Graphic Card and I wanted to replace that before Call of...
I know that with my GTX280 I could run a program like EVGA Precision and get on screen FPS, temps, time and a few other nifty bits of info. Any program out there for the ATI available?
I put together an i5 system a while back, but for some reason on the ati control panel I can't adjust fan speed manually there is no option.. I remember having the option on my previous Phenom II setup..
Anyone know how I can enable fan speed adjustment?
I've got a HD 4870 1GB
I thought you guys might be interested. Fluid gameplay at 3 screens with today's hardware :up:
I've tried to use RBE 1.22 to unlock the limit of core and mem clock,but it didn't work.
After I flashed the moded bios , Win7 and XP both can't recoganize the card.
Is there somebody know how to unlock the limit clock of 5770 ??
This is msi 5770 Bios.
Is there anyone can help me unlock...
My top card will often reach 90*C under heavy gaming, and logging with GPU-z reveals the fan only goes up to a max of 50%. The card will tick up to about 92*C and the fan stays at 50%.
My bottom card will cruise along at 80 to 85*C just fine.
Should I be worried about that top card? I've...
Is there a driver for 5870 that is Futuremark approved.:confused:
i have a couple of gfxchilla coolers i removed from my last 4870's and i have 5870's coming. will these fit? are they worth it over the stock 5870 coolers. they were AWESOME on the 4870's i had.
I'm having a major issue with my pair in crossfire.
For some reason, the second card runs constantly at 99% load (even when the system is idling). I can't figure out why. I have loaded and unloaded drivers several times and it continues to persist.
Because its running in this fashion,...
I started to overclock my xfx radeon 4870, and right now it's at 830, 1100. When I run my games I think it works fine, but it fails on second 3dmark06 test (IDirect3DDevice9...). I'm not sure what to do at this point as I think that any lower...first of all I don't have a guarantee that it wouldn't...
I checked on google, all I could find is they recommend a minimum of 450W. Does anyone know the current required on the 12V rails?
I really want to used this with a 300W TFX PSU and it only has 21A on the 12V rails. I would be pairing it with a Q9550S (65W TDP).
hey i just got my new 4870 and after installing i noticed that in 2d the fonts are a little jagged like my 3450 was in xp.in xp i used auslogics boost speed and used the tweak manager to tune the fonts but this 4870 even after doing this still looks bad.i just installed vista and im seeing the same...
I got a sapphire 5870 that i flashed to the asus bios. i used RBE to up the max core to 1500 and also max mem to 1500.
Now the problem is that every time i go to 1ghz core it artifacts heavily then hangs. i did up the voltage as far as MSI afterburner would allow but it still did...
Using msi after burner + amd gpu clock tool
i was browsing web pages after playing tf2 and all of the sudden started to get artifacts, i quickly lowered voltages + clock speeds, then I check msi afterburner monitoring program.
Im assuming its my card, but would like to know is there some...
