    Another graphics card finds its way out of the ATI labs, but this time with a half-height PCB

    The fastest graphics card in the world - but is it worth £600?

    It might be the world's first DirectX 11 graphics card. But as Jeremy Laird discovered, AMD's latest pixel pounder is also an old school bruiser.

    AMD's latest pixel pounding beast is more of a mild overhaul of an existing GPU than an all new architecture. AMD says the chip itself is new, but functionally it's identical to the existing Radeon HD 4870.

    We're not big fans of multi-GPU graphics technology here on ye olde TechRadar. Whether you're talking SLI from NVIDIA or AMD's Crossfire, multi-GPU graphics solutions promise much but typically conspire to disappoint. Can the 4870 X2 change things?

    Just how much are you willing to pay to have the fastest graphics card? That's always been a tricky question for PC gaming enthusiasts. But with the release of ATI's latest performance graphics chipset, the Radeon HD 4870, it's become a real conundrum. That's because AMD's graphics subsidiary has given up chasing the outright 3D performance crown. It is no longer even trying to create the fastest single GPU on the planet. Instead it has shifted its focus towards efficiency and value for money. As we discovered last week with our first look at the entry level member of the Radeon HD 4800 series, the 4850, ATI has done a stunning job. The 4850 is yours for a piffling £125 but delivers more performance than the fastest single-GPU graphics card available just a few months ago. Say hello to the 4870

    What DX10 cards lack in performance, they make up for in stunning DX9 credentials, at least at the high-end. The midrange is another story - after a thorough examination of the other cards on offer at its price point, I'm not impressed

    Unless you're an avid gamer, you've probably missed the fact that Nvidia currently finds itself in something of a unique position. Its G80 family is the only one to offer support for Microsoft's DirectX 10.

    Wherever Nvidia treads, ATI must surely follow. Or is it the other way round? With their latest 3D chipset launches, Nvidia and AMD's PC graphics subsidiary have once again mirrored each other extremely closely

    At first glance, ATI's tiring flagship board looks like a spent force. Not only does it take a vicious, vaguely embarrassing shoeing from NVIDIA's new killer, the GeForce 8800GTX, but it also loses out to the green team's previous flagship graphics card

    Need some extra speed? Just bung on a few more cores. That’s the prevailing philosophy guiding the development of PC processors these days.
