COMMENT "We have saved the best until last with Crysis which is a very demanding modern game which will really stress Sapphire Radeon HD 3870. Crysis does indeed stress Sapphire Radeon HD 3870 but it's more than a match and delivered playable performance."

COMMENT "Sapphire Radeon HD 3870 performed very well with all of the games we used for testing. We did however feel that the system we used just wasn't powerful enough to show what Sapphire Radeon HD 3870 could deliver. We will be reviewing Sapphire Radeon HD 3870 again in the future with a much more powerful system and new more demanding games to benchmark!"
