Palit Revolution 700 Deluxe 4870X2 First Look & Test
We slapped the monstrous card into the ASUS Rampage II Extreme board and you can see how much space it takes up. However, you can add still in another card to run Quad Crossfire setup. We got hold of a Core i7 920 (2.66GHz) processor which i believe most end users will be getting this due to its decent price and overclocked it to a level where most people can achieve; the 4GHz mark using the ASUS Triton 81 LGA1366 cooler. The max multiplier for Core i920 is 20X but with Turbo Boost enabled, the multiplier can now be automatically set at 21X. We employed a base clock clock of 190MHz for best stability.
We installed the latest Hotfix which improves performance for Far Cry 2.
The PWM heatsinks do get real hot but the good thing is that the cooler for the GPUs is separate from the PWM and memory heatsinks.
