Radeon HD 4870 huh? 800MHz core clock and 3400mhz on the memory? Seems slower than what we have been hearing as 850MHz/3870MHz was rumored last week.

Thanks for the links!

Hardware-Infos says the "Radeon HD 4870" will feature have 480 stream processors, an 850MHz core speed, 1GB of 1935MHz GDDR5 RAM (that's a 3870MHz "effective" speed), and a 256-bit memory interface. Supposedly, this card will launch in May at $349 alongside a $269 Radeon HD 4850. The Radeon HD 4850 will share its high-end cousin's stream processor count, memory type, and memory interface width, Hardware-Infos claims, but it will have lower core and memory speeds of 650MHz/1728MHz and only 512MB of RAM.

Wow, I'm liking the look of this.

Be very interesting to see where the 4850 falls in performance wise, both the prices look to be good for where they sit on the market.

Dag, I really can't wait to see the full results and reviews of this card. If these are correct, I'm gonna love getting one of those puppies.

With results like these, you can bet that Nvidia is on the ball with something better. Wouldn't surprise me one bit. Now would be a good time for them to announce their new architecture, (G94) or whatever they've been working on.

I'm taking these with a grain of salt.

However, I am expecting good things from ATI's next gen cards, and I think it's quite possible that ATI could end up having the best cards in terms of price/performance this summer.

I am taking this with a grain of salt too. Anyway, if HD 4870 performs that good it will shake up the graphics market. We might be seeing the same scenario that happened with the CPUs with the arrival of Core2. :axe: 9900GTX and HD 4850 for $200 sounds like a good start of a price war :D

I'm speechless... An HD 4870's single GPU outperforming both GPUs from the 9800 GX2 on Crysis by 25% at the high settings?? 21,000+ 3dMark06 score a single 4870 GPU alone?

This is unbelievably incredible. I still don't believe that source. Imagine then how would a 4870 X2 perform... The techs for the 4870 don't reveal for me how could possibly this card provide such an ultra performance.

If this is true, then I feel so sorry for both of my 8800 GTS G92's... damn

Keep on Rockin' AMD/ATI. This makes me very happy as a long time supporter of AMD and ATI products.

:partyman:

Hope this is true, and that this will get this great company back in the game for awhile.

Live long AMD/ATI, we need you !

I've always had probs with nVidia cards and drivers personally, even though I am sure they have improved since my bad experiences way back when, I'll stll always go with AMD/ATI, cause they need us as well!

Man oh man I hope this is true. I have been with ATI and AMD ever since my ATI 7200 and my slot A AMD 750Mhz CPU with 512 megs of ram. MY only betrayal is my gaming rig with my E6600 with a 8800 GTS 320 later replaced with a E8400 and a 8800 GTS 512.

Viva AMD

The cards and drivers are long away from being done. A few people have working R700 cards, but the number isn't that great. These cards might been seen at Computex in AIB partner systems and trust me the drivers from today and then will be night and day. They still have a month of driver development left. Even if these benchmark numbers are real (and I don't think so) they will be different than what we will see later in June/July. If ATI can keep these cards down around the $299 the Radeon HD 3870 launched at they should put some serious pressure on NVIDIA. Fear not though as NVIDIA has the GeForce 9900 series in the works. Looks like i'll be busy coming up here soon. It's actually good though because I'll update the test bench to 64-bit Vista with SP1 as I wasn't running SP1 before. I'm making unattended slipstream Vista 64-bit w/ SP1 bootable DVD's this second actually and am trying to track down the no-cd/dvd cracks for all my games so I don't have to stand there and switch discs 100 times a day. Wish the VelociRaptor drives were out... That might speed things up too.

Right now I have 9 games and 3 synthetic benchmarks that we will be using. These will be some massive reviews. Still planning on using one setting and then testing them at 1280x1024 and again at 1920x1200. 2560x1600 is nice, but the number of people that use that resolution are far and few. 1920x1200 on the other hand is the sweet spot for gamers due to the new uber low price points on those monitors.

Back on topic... Only 2GB of memory on Crysis... That hurts performance significantly as Crysis loves 4GB. DDR3 memory at 1333MHz with 9-9-9 timings? Yuk, they got CL5 memory for 1333MHz. If by chance these numbers are real, they will only get better as that test system is the suck.

Not quite these numbers but these 48XX series are kicking some a$$, viva AMD.
