It is appeared a new official AMD-Document (26 May). It informs about new prices, the launch date and the memory size. HD 4870 1 GB will revalead two weeks after HD 4870 512 MB and HD 4850 512 MB


4850 512 is $229
4870 512 is $329
4870 1024 will be out two weeks later.
No 1 gig GDDR3 products can be made until GDDR5 are available.

If you go to vrzone, you will fine the original article in german, and it states that

4870 x2 will be 30% faster than GX2 and
4870 will be 40% faster than 9800/G92 GTS

Lookin solid.
Too bad Qimonda couldn't keep up with GDDR5 production or we would be having 4870 right with the 4850!

Go ATi!

well, we have the sweet time of waiting for nvidia to release theirs and the performance on those cards, if the price is actually worth it. mayb its like geforce 7 to 8 transition all over again and the 800 dollar investment would be worth for many ppl, of course there is the gt200b series... nvidia is making it tough on people

well seeing the new nvidia cards are 450+, i personally wouldn't spend over 300 dollars on a graphics card, if i max out the 300 dollars then i simply wait for the next gen cuz really theres not that much of a performance increase.

But even then, i would wait for minor price drops, mabye a mail in rebate to sweeten the deal. HIS always made some awesome coolers TurboQ coolers or w/e for ATI cards that are like the reference cooler, they have that dual slot cooler that blows hot air of the case. Hopefully HIS can release those at a sensible price.

Well thats how cheap i am

4870X2 = 30% better than GX2: that's sweet... . Maybe that's what the chart from Guru3d that floated around a while back was meaning to say...

GO ATi!!!

Either way I think I might skip these next series of videocards, with what I have, I would be better off getting an E8500, or someone in chat brought up the E8600 with a x10 multi, that would tide me over for awhile since I can still play everything out there except crysis at max settings.
