With the holidays rapidly approaching, more and more games with breathtaking graphics are being released to the gaming market. For most gamers, this could be heaven or hell depending on what video card they’re currently running. That’s because games such as Crysis, Hellgate: London, Need For Speed: Pro Street, and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare demand so much from the video card that they can crumble a card that isn’t up to par. I’m going to be taking a look at the newest ATi based graphics card – the Sapphire HD 3870 video card. This card boasts 512MB of GDDR4 onboard memory, HDMI support, DirectX 10 support, Crossfire X support, and HD support. All of these technologies are very recent and will be around for years to come. But will having these technologies be enough to handle the most recent games? Is the Sapphire HD 3870 a must-have? How will its results stack up to high performance cards? Join me as I thoroughly examine every aspect of the Sapphire HD 3870 video card.
The Sapphire HD 3870 comes packaged in a box that has an extremely attractive female displayed on the front. You’ll also find many of the features and technologies of the card listed on the front of the box. The back of the box has a captivating paragraph explaining the card and its benefits. There is also a list in multiple languages that tells you what is inside the box.
