Radeon HD 4870 is a high-end GPU based on the 55nm, third unified shader architecture, R700.
It's based on the RV770 PRO Core and offers 800 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 16 ROPs a 256-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 750MHz and the memory clock runs at up to 900MHz.
Compared to Radeon HD 4890, it offers slightly less bandwidth (thanks to the higher operating memory clock), the central unit is lower clocked and features twice as less video memory. However, it only consumes up to 150W (40W less). The performance difference between is not very significant and so Radeon HD 4870 might be the best choice, over 4890 since it can be easily overclocked.
Most of today's modern games should run fluently at high settings but with modest resolutions. DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
Using this card right now. It runs most of 2011 just fine. Anything with Dx11 or higher will be bummer tho. Cant complain since i got this from garbage shelter. Good card ocs to 780-800 with stock volts.
I really wonder why is this the minimum for GTA V. It's really different with 9800GT
why is this card better than mine with 41/%, it had to be only 11/%
is my gpu better?
i got this card it works good for DX9-10 games but with all of todays games using DX11 you might as well just get a card with DX11 but if your just looking for a nice card then here you go but srsly danm it microsoft making gaming harder :(
which is better hd 4870 or hd 6570…….???
My friend just got this graphics card, we used this driver link, but it shows "Latest AMD Catalyst™ Drivers for Radeon™ HD 7000, HD 6000 and HD 5000 Series". Does this mean the Catalyst driver does not support the HD 4000 series anymore?
HD4870 has higher bit, higher memory bandwidth, shader process and so on
Is my card really better than it ?
i use an dvi to vga adapter i loss performance because i use an adapter
there is cheap secondhand powercolor 4870 and vapor-x,i need advice from som1 that have this card cause i heard this series has problems with cooling ,blue screens,restarts after 1 hour of gameplay.
