No, but they're leaving the possibility open for vendors to create a 4850X2 and that would use GDDR3. They aren't making a reference board for it, though. A 4850X2 would make sense because if the 4870X2 can actually compete with the GTX280, they do kind of need a product in between the 4870 and the X2 price-wise.

Would be nice if this is true. If ATI can come out with a better performaing card for less $$, I forsee drastic price drops from Nvidia and, either way you go, you'll get a great card for the $$. I am planning on waiting for a few months after release to see what becomes of all this.

yes it should, take the 8800gt, it was the best performance in it's price range, not everyone can afford to buy the top end cards, so price does matter in more ways

Thats not the point. The point is that it is possible for a cheaper video card to outperform a more expensive one.

Agreed. I think the other poster took it the wrong way. (I assume he meant that the most expensive isn't always the best)
