  • What's all this talk of Crysis looking crap?!? It really doesn't. It may run crap, but no way in hell does it look crap in Very High DX10.

  • It might as well look like a unicorn turd because I'll never see it on my crappy ass computer

  • I mean Crysis doesnt have so good graphics as everyone says and in my opinion its not realistic looking graphs expect when u get to "snow" map then it looks more realistic

  • Who in the world would run 4870X2 with normal coolers Il get something else for em than stock.

    And one 4870X2 isnt just a bit faster than one GTX280 its a lot faster ^^

    Not in 1280X1024 resolution but check this review

    just example^^

  • I would generally agree Crysis doesn't look realistic, but it is still the most technically advanced game on the market.

    As for artistic style along with the technical side, my favorite goes to Uncharted.

  • That looks ok^^ But meh i cant wait for Far Cry 2! -.- that game looks a lot more realistic than crysis and i think it looks a lot better

  • Oh yes, Far Cry 2 looks good also! I was picking from games already on the market though. Uncharted is my favorite.

    I also think Rage from Id Software is looking great.

  • Well far cry comes this month 24th i think so its almost out ^^

  • What's all this talk of Crysis looking crap?!? It really doesn't. It may run crap, but no way in hell does it look crap in Very High DX10.

    I don't think it looks like anything special to be honest... I think COD4 looks better than Crysis.

    LOL! Go deadeye

    Who in the world would run 4870X2 with normal coolers Il get something else for em than stock.

    Most people. In fact, unless you are going water cooling, then the stock fans are way better than any aftermarket crap you buy. Not to mention it voids any warranty you have on your card if you change it.

    That "review" is a load of shit. Sorry.

    Try something that uses no biased hardware reviewers testing it on more than just one game that happens to prefer ATI graphics cards in general.

    No offense but I sell PC hardware for a living and have done so for the last 15 years... I would like to think I have some idea what I'm talking about when it comes to what's what, and what's bullshit.

  • Well i had other review thats a lot better but its in Finnish... and that was the quickest I could find and aftermarket coolers are good Ive used 1 in my X1950Pro it was a hell lot more silent and like 50times as better in cooling well it was 700g of aluminium+120mm fan... So don't call aftermarket stuff bad even some of them are. Here's another example my CPU now has Noctua 12 cooling system its a big metal thing where you just put fan It cost me 50bucks but with it i can easily overclock my cpu from 1.8ghz to 3.25ghz or even higher and still my cpu stays under 55c all the time.

    EDIT here's link for the Finnish review and thats the site I usually use

    http://plaza.fi/muropaketti/artikkelit/ ... -x2-r700,1

  • AND IT DOESNT TEST ONLY 1 GAME theres like 6 games in that review I put up just check the diff pages!!! omg u nub -.-

  • And that PhysX thing is bullshit you cant compare it and use as it changes the DLLs of 3dmark!!! So its kinda cheat and it affects CPU score! Compare GPU scores only when comparing diff videocards!!!

  • Sagal, I don't want to get into a bitch fight about this... but I fail to see how you think PhysX is cheating, when the majority of games support it and from now on, nearly all new games will boast PhysX support. If I am getting nearly the same frame rate with a single GTX280 as your super mega dual GPU 4870x2... then that's that mate. End of story really. Mind you, I have 2x GTX280's so I don't care either way...

    Have fun with your 3 bar power sucking heater brick.

    ~Sol

    P.S. I'm not saying that the 4870x2 is a crap card... I'm just saying there are much more viable options out there for the price... oh and, you are trying to compare a dual GPU card to a single GPU card... if the GTX280 was dual GPU (in comparison) it would whoop the living poop out of the 4870x2, IE my current SLI setup (but it's a bit pricey).

    I find it funny that you referred me back to that review, because I just looked at all the other results pages, and there is like roughly a 10% difference in performance, even on their tests. It's quite well known that Guru 3D prefer ATI products, and will fanboy themselves into the darkest of corners... but even their ratings on the other tests show there is little difference between the cards.

    Personally, paying 30% more for a card that is around 10% faster... and 5x times hotter... is kind of silly. I have bought nothing but ATI for that last 6-8 years, but this time nvidia won clearly. I also find it funny how they exclude PhysX from the Vantage tests... even though PhysX is a perfectly viable way of improving game performance. It's like being in a drag race and one guy has nitrous oxide but isn't allowed to use it because the other cry baby says it's cheating.

    The funniest part is the results from COD4 though.... my PC doesn't have DDR3 ram like their test rig, and has a lower core speed (even though it's a quad core instead of dual core) and COD4 runs faster than what they are claiming they got... and yes, I had SLI turned off when I checked it.

    At the end of the day, you pick whatever makes you feel more like a man... I'd personally prefer to wake up in the morning and find my PC still in one piece instead of melted into a solid lump on the floor because my video card(s) caught on fire.

    *EDIT*

    If you still think that PhysX is bullshit... and that it can't be compared... then let's compare the GTX280 with a single GPU 4870 instead of the x2... because it can't be compared

    In closing, the 4870x2 is freakin awesome if you can run 2560x1600... becuase at those super high resolutions they really shine (because of the twin GPU)... but if you are using a 22" monitor or smaller than it's a waste of time.

    ~Sol

  • Well you are true about the melting x2s but the PhysX is cheating in 3dmark im not saying its not in games but in 3dmark il say it is when it overwrites dlls and as i said i usually check muropaketti for news etc and reviews and im not really gettin those im gonna buy 4870 as its best price-performance card theres out... And im using 1280X1024 reso as i have 19'' monitor-.-

    And we really should stop this its so offtopic and it really doesnt matter -.-

    And I know that X2 is dual gpu and 280 is single but in future i think that almost all videocards will be dual or quadro or more gpus as its cheaper and easier to make multiple and connect em. As you can see from the prices and I would use nvidia too if they would have lower prices. When 280 came out it cost like 700 dollars? and when X2 came out it cost 400 dollars and after that nvidia lowered the 280 to 500 or something? so theres a hell lot air in the prices. the end.

    PS. When u must be so rich when u got good pc send me one 280 :p
