Barefeats has released another benchmark comparison, this time examining the recently announced ATI Radeon HD 3870 Mac & PC Edition. The tests provide a review of the card's performance versus other Mac Pro video options for Core Image Applications, 3D Games, and PC Games via Boot Camp.
Though the GeForce 8800 GT is faster (in most cases) than the Radeon HD 3870 for 3D gaming, the Radeon is much faster than the base Radeon HD 2600 XT. And don't forget the Radeon HD 3870 beats the GeForce 8800 GT in Core Image performance needed for Apple's Pro Apps. That's why we recommend the Radeon HD 3870 Mac & PC Edition as the best overall graphics card. Check out all the statistics at the links below.
Barefeats: ATI Radeon HD 3870 - Core Image Apps
Many hard core gamers with Mac Pros run PC games under Windows XP or Vista in their Boot Camp partition. Notice the Radeon HD 38700 is called "Mac & PC Edition." That means it not only works nicely under Windows XP or Vista, but there is driver support for Crossfire mode. We tested this capability using two Radeon HD 3870s. Not only does it work but the Control Center app has an Overdrive features that lets you automatically test your Radeon HD 3870 to see how much it can be overclocked before overheating
