That is what they accomplished. At the time of the series launch, ATI laid out its new strategy: The Sapphire HD X2 is by the fastest graphics card we have ever reviewed and this performance is truly astounding. Ok everything seems good even on the latest drivers and the 3D clock reset did the trick for the second GPU. Jack1n Jan 16, OCC Gold While testing the Sapphire HD X2, I found that it performed best at the higher resolutions, when the other cards would slow down – usually at x and higher.

Best Drivers for a 4870X2??

One hell of a card which produces performance that is unmatched bsst any single PCIe slot based solution. Ok some how i got it working. The only thing more inane than the X2 is plugging two of them into one system.

Endnotes Radeon HD ATI has been working hard on their multi-GPU scaling and compatibility, with nice improvements in both areas delivered in drivers earlier this year. 4870d2 you are thinking about a multi GPU solution involving the latest hardware you are going to want something upwards of 1KW. Bezt Futuremark gives approval to Nvidia drivers that include PhysX optimizations and until more games ship with hardware PhysX support, this is the best means of producing apples-to-apples comparisons.

As a TOP model, the card comes overclocked, but bes can take significantly more tweaking before showing instability—it has the largest overclocking potential in the test group with a maximum of MHz GPU and MHz memory.


Appaling to see that this driver a whql fgs! Anyway so I got it all done took like 4hrs and I put it into my work station PC to test it out, so far so good but im having issues with drivers.

Wrong i still have my x2 laying around and it did show up as crossfire in catalyst and in GPU-Z. But if you want 487×02 take the card to its limits, you can get quite a bit more out of the TOP model.

Most of these feature tests scale incredibly well from one GPU to two. Yep I changed it to full screen mode from not windows mode but the other option they give you.

As long as you run the card with only Catalyst 8. Welcome to the kilowatt era. The X2 removes that RAM limitation and doubles up the graphics horsepower to great effect.

Melvis Jan 22, In actual game play power draw is much higher as the CPU, memory, and hard drive 4870×22 come under load at the same time.

PowerColor HD X2 – graphics card – Radeon HD X2 – 2 GB Overview – CNET

Hi guys, I have two old X2’s and 1 of them started to have artifacting issues a good 14months ago or so and I have finally got around to refurbishing it completely. Hi HD x2 it would not have a crossfireX enable tab[if it is a single vga card] only dual card configurations have this] Do both GPU’s show in device manager?

The X2 is an incredible power hog.
