And they pull it off once again


It's just a tad too expensive for my likings but the price will drop.

There are no architectural changes that would change any of the numerical specifications other than clock speed.

They are using a more mature version of the 55nm process which allows for the higher clock speeds. That is really it.

That begs the question, Buy another 4870 when the prices drop, or op for a better 4890(if they keep that name)?

Yeah i have seen that but seeing as they said this:

the new board will have two power connectors, one 6-pin and one 8-pin, but this doesn’t come as surprise as 4870 has two.

And every 4870 i have seen including my own has 2x6 pin connectors,no 8 pins in sight. i dunno if i should be believing this.

I thought they did that but added a higher voltage. Now you can push the card father....?

/agree

Let's see...it's a completely different chip but it's still being reported as a faster clocked 4870.....will the world finally just say...maybe it's a different card one day.

4870 = ATI's version of g92

So so far its just a 14% core speed and 9% memory speed increase.

Thats not enough to challenge GTX 285.

i dont see what the big deal is, i run my x2 at those clocks??

But remember, it's not the RV770 chip. It's a completely different chip so we don't know the improvement clock for clock. My guess is that there's at least 20% improvement clock for clock against the RV770 and if that's the case, this should easily be competing against the GTX 285.

Perhaps I am just remembering wrong, but I thought R770 = 4870 and RV770 = 4870X2. Is this true? If so, why are people referring to the 4890 as RV790 when it does not appear to have 2 GPUs on the board? If it is not correct, then what are the 4870 and 4890 designations?

Looks like I WILL be waiting on this card, just not the 1GB version for $299
$199 for the 512MB and it's mine!

there are no architecture changes. the 48 part of 4800 determines

4 - generation

8 - architecture

3/5/7 - series

0 - sounds cool. an ati four eight seven, or a forty-eight seventy ? also allows for a 5 like on the phenom's if they add some kind of support. dx11 mehbe ?

if it was new archtecture, it'd be 49XX.
