Earlier this week with the release of the Catalyst 8.8 driver we were first to deliver Linux CrossFire benchmarks for the Radeon HD 4800 series along with the first OverDrive for Linux article. With our initial CrossFire for Linux article we had delivered benchmarks from the Radeon HD 4850 and Radeon HD 4870, now though we are delivering the first Radeon HD 4870 X2 benchmarks under Ubuntu Linux. In this article we have our hands on the VisionTek Radeon HD 4870 X2 2GB graphics card.

Features:

- Dual TeraScale RV770 Graphics Engines
- 1600 Stream Processors
- 230GB/sec Memory Bandwidth
- ATI CrossFireX Technology
- Unified Video Decoder 2, Avivo HD
- 2GB of GDDR5 Memory
- 7.1 Channel HDMI Audio
- OpenGL 2.1 Support
- PCI Express 2.0

The Radeon HD 4870 X2 arrived in a package that wasn't much larger than the graphics card itself. Protecting this dual-GPU graphics card though were two thick layers of foam on the top and bottom. Also included with the graphics card was an HDMI adapter (capable of transferring audio too), DVI adapter, one CrossFire interconnect bridge, and HDTV component adapter. The model shipping to consumers will also have a driver CD and manual, but our evaluation sample that arrived prior to the card's launch had not contained either item. On the VisionTek website only Windows XP and Vista are listed as supported operating systems, so we imagine that on the driver CD will not be any Linux software.
