R wasn’t fast enough, while RV offered a great balance of features and performance per watt, but it was never going to win any performance medals at the high-end. This combination is made possible by the CrossFireX drivers, that enable 4 cores simultaneously. Page 1 of 2. I really don’t like that much heat being tapped in the case, even with good airflow. We have a look at the fastest of the two cards being released – the ATI Radeon HD – to find out if makes up for lost ground with the HD series. Nvidia denies planned MCP exit.

Then when the PCIe v2. Read on to out how it gets on! Due to different cooler design, Asus turned their power connectors upwards, so connecting the power is easier than ever. Benchmarking, Conclusion All Pages.
Sunday, March 18th This combination is made possible by the CrossFireX drivers, that enable 4 cores simultaneously. I believe it is still one pcb. This feature alone makes the ASUS EAH X2 quite an attractive option for consumers intent on setting up a PC with quad monitors – say to watch the stock market crash, or play a flight sim.
Press Release by Jimmy Mar 18th, We see that the front of the card houses two fans, so each RV core has its own cooling system 2x up of one fan and a heatsink with a heatpipe. Both companies have continually out-performed one another at different times, and the constant asuss has lead to different philosophies in graphics chip manufacturing and even videocard design. The eight pin is a requirement for overclocking the card beyond ASUS’ included overclocking, and it’s really recommended that you run a card like this on a W power supply or greater.
We put the Radeon HD X2 through its paces in six of today’s hottest games to find out if AMD is once again competitive at the high end. Sapphire Radeon HD We did run into an issue with the fans not ramping up sah speed under high GPU load – this behaviour can be customized using a special tweak in the Catalyst software, which PCSTATS covers in more depth later in this article.
In addition to the power it draws from the PCI-Express slot, the card requires two non-optional two PCI-Express power connectors, one a six pin and the other an eight pin.
However, if the fan fails to ramp up to full speed the heatsink will get really hot, the black aluminum frame actually reached a temperature of C degrees! Three years parts and labour Nvidia has been pretty dominant at the top of the graphics card eaah ever since the GeForce GTX launched back in November and it’s fair to say that AMD has struggled a little in recent times.
If your power supply lacks an 8-pin VGA power connector, it will run with two 6-pin connectors though ALL overclocking functionality will be lost in Catalyst Control Center.
All that without any change in the design Nvidia denies planned MCP exit. The standard Asus x2 fan blows the air across the card, and releases the hot air via the back of the card thru the grill.
R wasn’t fast enough, while RV offered a great balance of features and performance per watt, but it was never going to win any performance medals at the high-end. It’s an expansion pack to the original Company of Heroes, Opposing Fronts and ashs a bit of fun to play. The dual-fan cooling solution exhausts hot air back into the case, which can be troublesome in chassis that have poor in-out airflow.

I think these cards still have a lot more potential than we’ve seen so far. After dropping a few hundred dollars on a videocard, it’s nice to get a good game included to test your newer, shinier graphics. HD X2 Still Competitive?
