ATI R680: the Rage Fury MAXX 2?

Unreal Tournament 3

Radeon HD 3870 X2

Unreal Tournament 3 has been profiled by AMD’s developers and the situation is again favorable to the 3870 X2. The increase, in comparison with the 3870, is limited to 65% (UT3 being very dependent on memory performance), but it was enough to outperform the 8800 Ultra with a gap that varies between 13 to 22%. Time and again the 3870 X2 seems slightly more powerful than our homemade CrossFire.

  • i will reserve judgement on the ultra vs 3870x2 until the first driver release after the official release of the card - think how much performance the 2900 xt gained! (not that i would expect anything like that much, but the ultra has had a year for it's drivers to mature)

  • Anand's shows the card in a better light, something about newer drivers i hear? Beating the GTS in most games with a largish margin

  • Is the R700 really delayed until 2009? I thought that rumour was dismissed...
