Yeah, it performs the same as a black edition 9800GTX, but the 4850 is still the same performance wise, give or take 2 fps, yeah ok its better in crysis, but we all know thats nvidia bias anyway.

$30 for 2 fps? Dont think so Nvidia.
How about superior cooling? In my estimation 80+ C card pumping hot and not in as 4850 air out of your system is very well worth 30$ extra.

Look at the 8800GT when it was released. Same issue really. When a fan is running at 10-15%, what do you expect (although this is ATIs fault and they need to fix the fan speed issue, and fast).

Good to see, Two great options for existing sli and cf mobo owners without having to buy a new board. (cheap upgrade for many) Much and much in performance. That been said i would go the 4870 if i was purchasing a new system. Never been much of a ATI fan but you can not knock the value of the 4870. lets hope the price war continues, we the consumer win in the end either way.

Stock clocks are unimpressive

The overclocking is nice though

Wow, two great cards to choose from at such a low price. Unfortunately for ATI and nVidia, I'm happy with my 8800gt, and I'm probably not upgrading till Christmas, so this may not affect me too much.

ATI should come out with more cards like the 4850, cuz so far their choices are far too little. My only problem is that ATI has worked so hard to come out with only two products that can compete with Nvidia's high-end and give them a run for their money (besides some of the older ones like the 3870 X2). I"m not too sure I can fully trust ATI in the future if nVidia can make many cards and match them easily.

It's only now that prices can come down from teh competition, which is what we like

I guess then apart from superior cooling it's down to overclocking potential, of which the 9800GTX+ seems to have plenty. Either way it's nice that the prices are now as low as they are, and hopefully the 4870X2 can do something about the monstrously expensive GTX280.

if overclocking the card was as easy as the reviewers made it to be then the 9800GTX+ wins, because quite frankly i dont think a card running 90-100C load as much overclocking potential left it in, and an aftermarket cooler will break the mid range budget.

I'll have my 4870 and eat it too!

Well 9800GTX+ is 230$, 4850 you can find it as low as 150 so you have still room for aftermarket cooling. Actually 4850 runs a bit cooler then 8800GT so i don't see that bring a problem since everyone here as a 8800GT and are not complaining and getting high clocks also. The thin i like about 4850 is that its only 625Mhz vs 740Mhz which gives 4850 huge overclock room which means when both overclocked to max 4850 wins.
