[NH] Radeon HD 4807X2 in mid-Q2, costs less than GTX280

Radeon HD 4870X2 is the next high-end card from ATI (although we might regret saying that when you see the performance of Radeon HD 4870 alone). Like the high-end of the preceding family, ATI has bridged two chips on one PCB. The card is highly dependent on the drivers as it uses ATI's multi-GPU solution CrossFireX for linking the performance of the two GPUs, and the drivers is suppose to be one of the bigger reasons AMD is holding off the launch until mid-Q2. The other reason is that AMD wants to make sure that it can pump out enough regular Radeon HD 4870 cards first without the GDDR5 supply becoming an issue. AMD believes that 4870 and 4850 are the cards that will hurt NVIDIA the most.

If the supply of GDDR5 chips is solid, or at least sufficient, and the drivers are adequate, AMD will present its new flagship in August at a price which is below that of NVIDIA's flagship product GeForce GTX 280. Stories are going around that it could be anywhere between $450-550. Even though it uses two chips, it is suppose to be a Cool N' Quiet card. We say that knowing that the cooler isn't even finished yet, but we also know that AMD has no intention of launching a card that runs hot and makes a lot of noise, and that the previous generation cooler was a rather good one.

We're also hearing that the GPU clock difference between Radeon HD 4870 and 4850 might be larger than we earlier reported. AMD wants the two cards to be further apart than they were with the previous generation. This is to clearly denote that one is high-end, and one is more of the mid-range kind.

More food for overclockers, then.

I'm interested in both the 70 and the 70 X2.. Bring 'em on!

God that hurts...
Wait until August till new X2
Or get the 4870 within the next two months.

(or i can get the 4870, buy a CF mobo and pair it up with an X2 for trifire! 8D)

I can dream, cant it? XD
*stares at power supply*
I think im gona work on that first..

price/performance the 48xx is gona be awesome

Nice Info, Also fix your title, its "4807X2" its need to be "4870X2"

Cool N' Quiet card...

Is Cool N Quiet capable of shutting down one of the cores if a game doesn't take advantage of CF(or just multi-gpus in general)?

That's a lot of ifs... And stories floating around that it could be $450-$550 isn't all that reassuring either. Even if this speculation turns out to be completely untrue it is potentially beneficial to AMD(ATI) or at least detrimental to Nvidia. GTX280 sales might not be that hot if people take this speculation to heart and wait for the 4870X2 to launch since it may cost less and perform better... All in all a smart move if AMD floated these stories of what could be.

lol, earthworm jim, you crack me up.

I'm definitaly going ATI next round, possibly even AMD too if my opty can hold out until whatever comes next and I can skip the entire Core architecture phase.

Judging by nVidia's prices in the future, those numbers are highly likely to be accurate in my opinion. Even if the GT200 isn't as fast as a 4870x2 i don't see nVidia pricing it any lower because of that at first.

I still want my 4 TFLOPS.
Quad me.



I just can't let it go.
post #10 of 24
i know there is very little info on the 4870x2, but does it have 2 cores on one die? or 2 seperate dies with one core on each die and CF built-in? plus i think they are just holding it off to see how the 4870/4850 does in the market with GDDR5, and gaining some profit, while still testing the 4870x2 until then.
