GS XXX vs 3870

It is pretty standard practice to test an 8800 GS against the 3850, after all they have many similar features and are within about £5/ $10 of each other in price and therefore that is the main bulk of our testing today. There is one issue though and that is the price of the XFX XXX model. At £129 it is actually only £5 ($10) cheaper than some 3870 models . For that reason we feel it makes interesting reading to include this page in our review today.

To ensure everyone reading has a complete picture of the £100-140 graphics market the above benchmarks show the performance of the Sapphire 3870 against the 8800 GS XXX. As the graphs show there is a clear lead for the 3870 in every one of the tests. Not once does the GS match the 3870 in performance. Also worth considering is that the Sapphire 3870 has the exact same bundle as their 3850 card and therefore adds more value to its product than the standard XFX bundle.
