Forming the new hardware

In: General

13 Jul 2008


In the últimas weeks toqué bottom when connecting my laptop to the monitor of the PC thanks to the fact that I sold my video card to a friend. It in fact only looked for a pretext to raise the equipment and I occurred to the task (once mÃs) to read reseñas in Anandtech and Guru3D about the new series of video cards of ATI.

So I have never been clogged to invest in a card of high rank (USD $400-$600) since my needs of edicià ³ n grÃfica (2D and 3D) requires as soon as a cost of mÃximo USD $300 and asà dejé the rest to destine it to the ram. eleccià ³ n was a Sapphire Radeon HD 4870 and 4GB of ram Patriot.

Después of pequeños problems with envÃo and dÃa complete of configuracià ³ n where I had to leave 2GB of memory outside since it sent pantallazo blue of the death (by mutual incompatibility in the voltage) decidà to me to operate it with the única thing able to devour the equipment: Crysis. For this I did upgrade to Vista x64 (cortesÃa of the office) since edicià ³ n of 32bit only detects 3.25GB (little mÃs of half); configuré everything to high detail (without AA) and I had the huge amount of 40-45 fps in average during the first 3 scenes of the game (the value mÃs under has been of 37fps).


Another pair of games that probé were Gears of War and Unreal Tournament 3 which has been optimized in such a way that desempeño ray between 80 and 90pfs in the levels mÃs high. The only problem aquà is the time of load of the Unreal ED (the cause of the cost of hardware) that takes until the Mayan triple of time of 8,5 PLE or the double that Sandbox2.

Outside that desempeño of both is impressive since it allows me to test in real time with the level of detail to mÃximo (along with open Photoshop and Zbrush) without sufir slowing down. inversià ³ n fué of $500 USD and now the único that remains to me hardly is to invest in a good system of cooling :P
