When XFX announced plans to offer AMD graphics cards alongside its Nvidia lineup last year, the firm promised Radeons all the way up to the 4870 X2 model. When XFX Radeons subsequently came out, however, the fastest model was a plain-old 4870 1GB (albeit with higher-than-normal clocks).
Well, XFX has finally pulled the curtain on its Radeon HD 4870 X2. This card looks to have a regular cooler and specs with by-the-book clock settings. In other words, it packs two 750MHz GPUs each with 800 stream processors, a 256-bit memory interface, and 1GB of "3.6GHz" GDDR5 memory riding shotgun.
What makes the XFX Radeon HD 4870 X2 special is the double-lifetime warranty coverage, which—as far as we can tell—entitles owners of both new and second-hand cards to lifetime coverage, provided they register within 30 days. That's how it goes for XFX's GeForce cards, at least. The company hasn't updated its warranty pages to mention Radeons yet, although the 4870 X2 spec sheet mentions double-lifetime coverage, and so does Newegg for cheaper XFX Radeons.
