ATI Radeon HD 5870 Review

Yeah… The wait is finally over. Here come the new 3D display card from AMD ~ ATI Radeon HD 5870. There are lot of ATI Radeon HD 5870 Review in the Internet now. I read through some of the reviews. The performance is really good ~ almost same as ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2. It is a good deal for new computer setup. However, I am not going to buy this ATI Radeon HD 5870 soon. But might get another Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 4870 512MB to enable CrossFireX when price go down. Nvidia GT300 will be released on Q1 2010. The price will be even lower then. ;)

Really can’t wait to get my hand on another Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 4870 512MB. Want to play games on 1920×1200 with my latest LCD monitor ~ Dell UltraSharp U2410. It should be able to run smoothly at 60 fps on most of the games. :D

Far Cry 2 Benchmark Tool

Far Cry 2 Benchmark Tool. I found Far Cry 2 Benchmark Tool finally. I wanted to benchmark all the 3D games that I have starting with Far Cry 2. Normally, games will have benchmark function after pull down the development console. However, Far Cry 2 skips all the hard ways. Far Cry 2 has its own benchmark tool. It is called FC2BenchmarkTool.exe and located at C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\Far Cry 2\bin.
