ATI EAH 4870 DRIVER DOWNLOAD
The cooling solution includes two fans and a heavy duty heatsink, which cool not only the graphics chip — but the memory modules as well. Pros Quiet operation, low temperatures under full tests, simple design, improved overclocking capability. The fan shroud forms part of ASUS’ hybrid cooler thermal solution, which is perhaps the biggest upgrade feature of the card. Out of the box, the card offers a core clock speed of MHz and an overclocked memory speed of MHz — both 20MHZ over and above their factory-standard counterparts. Would you buy this? This item doesn’t belong on this page. Unfortunately, the software won’t yield huge performance benefits — we actually received lower benchmark results in Crysis in our tests — so you may be better off with the factory-set clock speeds.

The software provides you with the card’s status, current clock speeds and temperature settings. Because the graphics card has a relatively large cooler, it does take up two PCI slots and also requires two separate 6-pin power connectors.

If anything, the graphics card provides silent performance and better cooling using its combined dual fan and heatsink design, but don’t expect an overhaul of the ATI Radeon HD performance standard.
The difference is definitely noticeable, and one that should be appreciated by any user who prefers their graphics card fast but not loud. Enthusiasts familiar with ATI’s products will be aware that the graphics cards can be overclocked using ATI’s overdrive utility.

Extreme Gaming Performance with Enthusiastic 4 Heat Pipe – Dark Knight
A good fit for those stuck with Dell BTX machines E Got it because this card would fit in my Dimension E and was one of the more powerful cards, and could handle older games and some new ones better than the Radeon according to TomsHardware and Anandtech. The reviews on NewEgg weren’t lying this is a loud fan because it afi to pull as ean heat as it can away from the card into the case, but unlike the HIS version has a variable fan that could be slowed but why would you want to do that with this card.

48870 In our test, under full load, we saw the temperature rise to a maximum of 56 degrees Celsius — a far cry from the degree Celsius temperature we saw when putting the reference card to the same test. In multicultural Australia, the opportunity for home cooks to expand their culinary horizons is too tempting to resist.
In real world gaming tests, the results were even closer.
Futuremark’s benchmark revealed this slight — but noticeable difference in performance — with the EAH MATRIX managed an overall score of in 3DMark 06, in contrast to the score of we managed on the Sapphire Radeon HDwhich has the same specifications as the reference board.
I researched recommendations for several of the Graphics cards and picked this one and it was an excellent selection.

This item doesn’t belong on this page. For those who don’t know what a BTX case is, for some Dell machines it’s an ATX mobo except with the expansion slots upside down so that only cards that have a single slot backplate the plate on the back with the DVI ports wi ll fit so it was either this card, a single slotthe rare Galaxy’s Geforce also single slot but expensive and probably too long to fitor the Powercolor single slot also expensive, but more powerful than the You may also like.
It is disappointing to see ASUS retain the MB standard, especially as the reference card has been in the market for some time. With a dual fan setup and an additional overclocking utility, the card doesn’t greatly improve on Radeon HD ‘s standard performance, but it still brings a refreshing update this established graphics processor. Unfortunately, the software won’t yield atii performance benefits — we actually received lower benchmark results in Crysis in our tests — so you may be better off with the factory-set clock speeds.
The Republic of Gamers series is a subset of ASUS’ branding usually reserved for the company’s high-end graphics cards and motherboards. The Software listed a few recommendations for a Graphics card and this was atl or near the top of the list.
Fan speed is usually determined by the card itself at a hardware level, but the included iTracker software offers further control and better automation. Got it because this card would fit in my Dimension E and was one of the more powerful cards, and could handle older games and some new ones better than the Radeon according to TomsHardware and Anandtech.
I would highly recommend this card to anybody in the same situation as me because even though this card is a power hog it just works, and that’s what matters to me even without DX11 support or HTPC features that make DVDs look better lacks Dynamic Range and other options reserved for newer cards under the video tab in Catalyst.
Would you buy this? Both cards performed on par in the Crysis benchmark an unfortunately unplayable 24fps and Lost Planet’s Direct X 9 performance test 81fps. In addition to keeping the graphics card cool, the hybrid cooler also works to keep the card relatively quiet. The cooling solution includes two fans and a heavy duty heatsink, which cool not only the graphics chip — but the memory modules as eau.
