    After claiming the single card performance crown, the 4870 X2 is proving immensely popular amongst high end enthusiasts. We take a look at Sapphire's version of this graphics monster, and try our hand at overclocking it - oven mitts on standby!


    The wait is finally over - Nvidia's new graphics cards based around the Fermi architecture are here! We take a look at the flagship card, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 480 1,536MB. Read on to find out if it's able to wrestle the single-GPU gaming performance crown from ATI's Radeon HD 5870.



    I think AMD/Ati has every reason to gloat.
    3DMark06 Canyon Flight test, 1,280 x 1,024 and Crysis DX10 at 1680x1050 aren't exactly a fair comparison imo.

    True, 2 years ago ATI had the most power hungry card, but then it was running 2 GPU's
