This isn't true. They are delaying the launch of the 4870 slightly (until July) so that it will launch only with GDDR5. There is no HD4870 with GDDR3. The only GDDR3 card announced for the 4800 series is the HD4850.
I'm pretty sure those screenshots are all fake. According the GPU-Z screen, the memory is running at 1.05GHz and has a 256-bit bus. This would only give it 2.1 * (256/8) = 67.2 GB/s of bandwidth even though it states 86.4. The other problem is shader clocks are separate now, and yet the shader box is greyed out. Not only that but the memory is running at the exact same speed as the rumored shader clock. Pretty suspicious IMO, seems like someone faked the numbers in the wrong block.
Regardless of whether the graphs/screens are fake, they aren't present in the Fudzilla article that claims the 4850 scored 5000, so they shouldn't all be treated as if they're from the same source. Just because the graphs and screenshots are faked, doesn't necessarily mean that the score from Fudzilla is fake, although it is still coming from Fudzilla so it should be taken with a grain of salt.Edited by darkcloud89 - 6/3/08 at 4:00pm
