Do you plan to test both cards with 11.4 or just 6950? I'm confident 6950 will see improvements but I'm unsure if HD4000 cards see any improvements anymore with new drivers.

The 9800's were a total sidegrade to the 8800's and only really the midrange 9 series cards had superiority over the last generation midrange. So you're essentially back to a 2 generation gap from a performance standpoint.

Just the 6950. I'm pretty much done with the 4890 until I receive it back from the RMA.

Maybe you'll get a new one that overclocks better?

Possibly but I'll probably just turn around and sell it. Don't really have a use for it anymore.

the overclockable 4890's were a hella bang for your buck back then and i bet people bought em up.. especially the xfx XOC edition. i wish like hell i had those ... theyre core clocks are at like what was it.. 975? at stock. mine are maxed out when you hit 850 core.
I really need a upgrade... but i bet i just dont sell my GPU's and just keep em anyway. i got charged me 350 for just one of these . . just last year. EEK... I bet i wouldnt get half my money back anyways

Saw a 2fps gain in the crysis warhead benchmark when going from 11.2 to 11.4. I'm hoping the newer games will benefit the most but I'll take a 2fps increase from a driver.

Had this 6950 at 1000 / 1450 @ 1.25v, it worked flawlessy but got a little warm for my taste, 85c. backed it back down to 950 / 1400 @ 1.17 and this is where it will probably stay. Now it tops out at 70c and I only see about a 1-2 fps difference from the 1000 core.

I have mine running at 970/1100mhz. But that's just one. I never bothered to really push it when I had two. They both ran 900mhz core clocks from the factory though.

Good to see how they perform compared to a 6950. Not all that much reason for me to upgrade yet though, regardless of running a single card for the time being.

Well its interesting with you guys RMA'ing the 4890's after almost being a 2 year old card, are they saying they will replace with another 4890 or will they replace with an equivalent 5000 or 6000 card?
