By using a very quiet and effective cooler in the form of the Zalman VF3000F, [Zotac] has added some extra performance by carrying out a mild overclock. The result is a quiet card that hammered through almost every game we threw at it. Overall, the Zotac is faster than a HD 5870.
Two big thumbs up to the design team, this product comes very much recommended and is granted our Top Pick award. What a nice release, I am genuinely impressed.
So, it’s job done then; the GTX470 is measurably better than AMD’s HD5870.
