Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 FleX Edition Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
Techware Labs have posted a review of the Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 FleX Edition graphics card, which features an enhanced Eyefinity port configuration.
Here's what they had to say:
"With prices on monitors coming down and the power of mid range cards increasing, running 3 monitors for gaming is becoming a more viable option. With the extra DVI port on the FleX edition cards, you dont need to buy a brand new monitor with DisplayPort. You can instead opt for something older and cheaper.
The 7870 is on the high end of the mid range card market. At time of writing it is being priced around $300. You save about $100 compared to the next step up, which is the 7950. You get a lot of value for that price. With the money saved, you can put it towards getting another monitor or even picking up a second 7870 for CrossfireX."
This is a good card for those who need a multi-monitor setup for productivity reasons and are satisfied with gaming on a single monitor. Though it's not really powerful enough to provide great FPS across multiple monitors in modern games, at least not at high quality settings.
