    Dual Screens - 2x1920x1080 sceeens, can a Sapphire 4670 handle them?

    The title says it all. Is it possible? it has 1 DVI port, 1 HDMI and one of those ancient blue ones.

    EDIT: 786MB Memory

    It's ranked 121 on the list, with a G3D score of 764.

    Conclusion: Sorry, no.

    It is possible to run these 2 screens.
    Gaming on these at full resolution won't.

    Windows desktop totally fine on 2 monitors, you can use HDMI->DVI adapter cable for the second monitor. Gaming on single monitor is doable if you turn settings low, but it wont be fun and it will lag badly. Radeon 4670 was already low end gaming card when it came out 3 years ago.

    Trolling should be.

    Running that second monitor won't kill your FPS as long as it's not used for gaming. Displaying a desktop is peanuts compared to the actual work it has to do to render games. I'd say if the game runs on one monitor, adding the second one to display the desktop won't really affect FPS.

    What list? Link?

    Have to agree with what has been said so far, gaming one one screen will work with other stuff on the second monitor (msn, vent, browser, ...)
    Gaming on both screens.... doubt it.
    An Apple fanboy called me a retard.
    In the real world that makes me a genius.

    Was about to ask the same thing. I am quite curious as well.

    If that's really it I'm going to start shaking my head already...
    That site has the Nvidia GTX570 & 580 above the AMD HD6990 when it's beating both in SLI. It also has the HD6850 above my 5850 while mine's still better.

    Passmark *shudder*

    I was driving 2x1680x1050 screens off a 4670. Desktop was fine but even WoW was a stretch for one screen. The 4670 was made for 1280x1024/1440x900 resolution. Keep games in a smaller window and you should be okay.
