Ati h3870x2


#1

Hello my personal exprerience , & also in the hardware reviews websites reveals that the new HD3870X2 is fater than not only from the Geforce 8800 Ultra but also from the 9 series cards. This new GPU has a two working 3870 cards in one card. Yesterday the new 8.3 version of Catalyst drivers have support for Quad 3870X2 working two in 2.0 PCI & others in PCI X16. The price is also lower than Geforce GTX (34k of HD3870X2)

how much it costs ?

babar_asghar, its costs 34000 rs for two 17000Rs HD3870s from galaxy.com.pk.

they are charging 17000 for a single card, in the global market the REAL price is somewhere b/w 11500-13000 Rs for a 3870. so you can see the difference how much extra they charge the customers.

I think the card he was talking about is the new single card with a dual gpu built in it. That retails for 34,000 at galaxy and yes it is better than an ultra.

Galaxy has good prices in almost everything but the GPU's are a killer! I wanted a 8800 GTS 512, I could get a factory OC'd version from the US for 17,000 and these guys are selling a stock 8800 GTS for 25,000!

Btw two 9600 GT will outperform the 3870x2 by a good margin for 5,000 less and two 8800 GT's will kill a 3870x2 for the same price!

Am waiting for the 9800 GX2 though, I prefer a single card solution to SLI or Crossfire.
