Radeon HD 4870 Sapphire Vapor-X 1GB Edition compatibility review

Overall, the AMD Radeon HD 4870 Sapphire Vapor-X 1GB Edition has decent performance. This is perfectly acceptable for a mid-range dedicated graphics card. This graphics card is now over 12 years old, which means it is extremely out of date and is based on very aged technologies. The driver support for the AMD Radeon HD 4870 Sapphire Vapor-X 1GB Edition is now fairly poor, so don't count on any new game optimizations. You may also encounter more and more graphical oddities as newer games are released.

With an effective SPU count of 420, the AMD Radeon HD 4870 Sapphire Vapor-X 1GB Edition processes shading and special graphical effects very well. The GPU is quite power-hungry at 150 Watts, however.
