    Default Sapphire Radeon 4870 Revisited

    Today weíll be examining the Sapphire 4870, albeit in a slightly narrowed capacity since it's not a full retail sample. We do understand that the Radeon 4870 has been out for a while now, but since we've just updated our benchmark suite, now including Mirror's Edge, Left 4 Dead, and Call of Duty: World at War, as well as a few other stalwarts, we figured it was a perfect time to revisit the 4870 on hand and see what it could do.

    Nice review. It feels nice to read a brand new review on a card model you actually own!
