12 - HD 3870: Conclusion

The Radeon 3870 offers really good performances in Direct3D and OpenGL. The stock cooler does its job but is a litlle bit noisy in comparison to NVIDIA ones. Like NVIDIA flagship products (8800 GTX and Ultra), the radeon 3870 offers two connectors for Crossfire that will allow to build a kind of triple-crossfire (CrossfireX). In the OpenGL side, we can notice a new extension in the Catalyst 7.11: GL_AMD_performance_monitor. Sounds this extension provides some performance counters. Wait and see. The good new is that the Cat 7.11 drivers bring the OpenGL 2.1 support like NVIDIA does. But vertex texture fetching is still not supported. I thought with unified architecture VTF would be supported but it seems not! Anyway, once AMD/ATI will have fixed the Catalyst 7.11 bug in OpenGL (GLSL shaders that deal with two or more dynamics lights do not work) this graphics card will be a good choice for a new graphics card with modern features.
