This solution will have immediate appeal to performance users with only a single PCI-Express slot available. On a suitable PCI Express Gen 2.0 CrossFireX mainboard it is also possible to use two SAPPHIRE HD 4870 X2 cards in CrossFireX mode to provide even higher levels of performance.

The SAPPHIRE HD 4870 X2 incorporates the latest ATI Avivo™ HD Technology for enhanced Video display and features a second generation built in UVD (Unified Video decoder) for the hardware accelerated decoding of Blu-ray™ and HD DVD content for both VC-1 and H.264 codecs, as well as mpeg files, reducing CPU loading to a minimum.

Question  yes, but the question was... by Stu

Answer by robinm on Monday, March 30, 2009
usually 6pin pci-e power connectors and you will get one in the box

how many does this card require? Since it is an x2 card does it need 2 x 6 pin connectors or just one? Any chance of more pictures of the card showing the power connector(s)?

Answer by robinm on Thursday, April 2, 2009
Just checked with the warehouse and its got the necessary power adapters included. 1x6pin and 1x8pin which will connect to your molex 4pin connectors on your PSU

Question  Power connectors by Stu

Hi Aria - can you tell me how many and what kind of power connectors this card needs? Are there any converters (from molex to...) in the box?

Question  Compatiblity and performance by Pete

Hi ARIA. Is this Ati card will work properly on nvdia chipsets nforce 750i Sli or 780i Sli? Thanks

Answer by robinm on Tuesday, December 30, 2008
Yes it should be fine on its own.

Question  32bit compatibility by Kayotika

Does this card run ok with vista premium 32bit?

Question  PSU with this card? by RandomOfAmber

Hi there - I'm building a system with (I think) a Gigabyte EP45-DS3P, 4GB PC-9600 DDR2, and one of these 4870x2s, and I was wondering what sort of PSU should I be considering for the build?

(If it helps at all, I'm probably going to build the system in the Antec Twelve Hundred case...)
