[TG Daily] Super RV7700

Mountain House (CA) – AMD’s Radeon 4850 and 4870 have been widely praised in the media and put the ATI team back on the map. But it appears that we have just seen a small portion of what the ATI guys have in space for users. The new boards are actually running at well below the clock speed they can support and there is every reason to believe that these cards will be challenging Nvidia’s very best.

The ATI Radeon 4870 ships with two six-pin power connectors, which support a maximum thermal design power (TDP) 225 watts (75 watts +75 watts and an additional 75 watts from the motherboard), while the board will never consume more than 160 – 170 watts at stock speed, we are told. That means that there is at least 55 watts of room for overclocking and enough space to find out what these GPUs are capable of.

AMD GPG (ex-ATI) is binning the parts to a lowest denominator required for good yields and a level of performance that reaches or sometimes overtakes Nvidia’s GTX 260. But this time around, the company developed an AIB/OEM-only product codenamed "Super RV770", which will be much more powerful.

The "Super RV770" will arrive with pre-installed water-cooling and features unlocked BIOS, which enables the GPU to be pushed all the way to 950 MHz, while the memory can be pushed to 4.8 GT/s (1.2 GHz QDR). According to our sources, you may be able to push the GPU even beyond 1 GHz, if you use TEC elements, and keep the temperature of GPU low.

At 4.8 GT/s, the "Super RV770" can achieve a bandwidth of 150 GB/s, taking the crown from the GeForce GTX 280. The RV770 chip has a 256-bit (32-byte) interface, which means we can calculate the bandwidth in the following way:

ATI RV770: 32-byte x 4.8 Billion Transfers/sec = 150 GB/s
Nvidia GT200: 64-byte x 2.2 Billion Transfers/sec = 138.37 GB/s

Not surprisingly, the first "Super RV770" product is already out. Diamond Multimedia teamed up with Danger Den and Smooth Creations to launch the "ATI Radeon HD 4870 XOC Black Edition".

Diamond clocked the core of its Super RV770 at 800 MHz and the memory at 4.4 GT/s (1100 MHz QDR). There is some room for overclocking left, as Diamond its own version of an unlocked BIOS and the board can be propelled up to 950 MHz for the GPU and 1200 MHz for the memory.

Mario Gastelum, director of product development & engineering stated that the “The Diamond Radeon HD 4870 XOC Black Edition was clocked to kick some ass. We wanted the fastest card that could kick the living daylights and bust some performance records".

Diamond's version of the Super RV770 is available in systems from Smoothcreations. Expect more announcements from other AMD/ATI partners, including Asus, Sapphire and GeCube.

Not sure if it was posted, couldn't find anything on it.

Sorry if its a repost!


Edit: I messed up the name Should be RV770

Not unlike what EVGA and the likes have been doing with the high-end Nvidia's. Higher binned, up the clocks, slap on a waterblock, and watch that MSRP soar. Cool find though.

I would really like this because I am looking to watercool my 4870 anyhow. However, I am not willing to pay well over $100 premium just for a binned chip and hunk of copper. =P

why not just water cool a 4870 and overclock it?

Yeah that's the way I would go but if you're going to go all-out and want to squeeze the card for every last drop you'll probably fare better with the higher binned hardware.

and these are better binned cards anyway, slightly higher clocks.

I'd like to see these put the GTX 280 in their place

IMO, that would be the biggest blow to the GTX series that AMD could deal. The GPU that they developed and targeted toward the mid-range market beating Nvidia's flagship. That is truly a most impressive feat, and if I'm not mistaken, it's one of the definitions for "ownage".

LOL

well im going to see what i can get on water with one of these cards very shortly. i'll posts some benchies when i get everything together.

that would be sweet getting 280GTX performance

I would considering a good fullcover block is almost $100 alone.
