The Road to EvergreenThe ATI Radeon HD 4000 series made its debut with the Radeon HD 4870 and HD 4850 in June last year. Little did we know that these were the cards that heralded the comeback ...
The new Radeon HD 5870 continued to do well in 3DMark Vantage, completely obliterating the Radeon HD 4890 and even the fearsome GeForce GTX 285. Its scores were about 20% greater than those of the GeForce GTX 285.
The Radeon HD 5870 didn't do too badly against the GeForce GTX 295 either. In most cases, it was only slightly behind and definitely gave the twin-GPU monster something to think about.
