To my surprise and chagrin, my first grope of an HD 4870 X2 was perilous. I came away from it a better person, maybe stronger, but scarred. I was uncertain about reencountering the double-edged machine, and rightfully so. It’s dangerous. An HD 4870 X2 consumes a commensurate amount of power and can withstand tremendous heat, but in the right, trained hands, it is absolutely a force. Forged of the blackest PCB, this VisionTek HD 4870 X2 is capable of bringing the fiercest games to reckoning.
