    Default Radeon HD 4870 Open-Source Support

    Phoronix: Radeon HD 4870 Open-Source Support

    Now that we have delivered OpenGL benchmarks of the ATI Radeon HD 4850 on Linux, we are turning our focus to the flagship Radeon 4870. For this testing we have dual Radeon HD 4870 graphics cards from Sapphire Technology. We'll be publishing these initial results in the coming days, but for now, we are just letting everyone know that this RV770 GPU also is working with xf86-video-ati after writing a trivial patch for this display driver. Our patch is enclosed.

    What I find most interesting about this article is that you have two 4870's pictured, is that a hint of a review with a new fglrx driver including crossfire?

    By the end of summer ( Or sooner if AMD lets me publish the benchmarks early. )
