Radeon HD 4870 compatibility review

Overall, the AMD Radeon HD 4870 has decent performance. This is perfectly acceptable for a mid-range dedicated graphics card. This graphics card is now over 9 years old, which means it is extremely out of date and is based on very aged technologies. This graphics card will be dwarfed in performance by its modern counterparts, and will likely have very little driver support from AMD.

With an effective SPU count of 390, the AMD Radeon HD 4870 processes shading and special graphical effects competently. The GPU is quite power-hungry at 150 Watts, however.
