ATI has traditionally been the VGA card that has had better graphics and slower performance than NVIDIA based cards and this has been the tradeoff between the two companies when comparing them in a gaming environment. Now the tables have turned and ATI is kicking major ass in both those areas and that is a good thing for the hard-core enthusiast gamer who wants the best of both worlds. The Radeon 4870 X2 is next generation stuff as far as performance goes and it just rips through any game currently in existence and plays them at resolutions of 1920X1200-Widescreen with all the bells and whistles turned to maximum without taking any type if performance hit from a users viewpoint.

Crysis once the great crippler of the modern VGA card has now just become another game as both NVIDIA and ATI have cards that chew it up and spit the pixels out. The 4870 X2 is not daunted in any way by any game that you can play, and the way the PC gaming industry has slowed down due to profit loss it may be awhile before we see another game so system taxing. IF you are going to buy this card however I recommend at least a decent Dual-Core CPU and some fast memory, as this card will become CPU bound before it slows down itself. Playing on this card is a joy on a good system, itís just really cool to have the card set to its maximum potential and not notice a performance hit whilst doing so. Palitís 4870 X2 had Solid as a rock performance in gaming, and awesome graphics reproduction as well.
