Whats your pick? why? is there a (1GB?) 4850 in stream? About how much would it cost?
how can we possibly have a comparo of the two when one doesn't even exist yet?
some of it is "speculation" after all im trying to have a discussion.
I would all have to be speculation, but I would guess that 4850 would beat the 8800gt. Probably have new features like DX10.1 and less power consumption and greater overclockability due to the 55nm process.
how can you properly discuss something that does'nt exist?
this is like fanboi fodder
dont worry, ill get a mod to sort out the junk as it gets posted.
Or we could possible just close this thread untill the HD 48XX series is released?
*I was a little to hasty. If people can't behave themselves here, then the thead will be closed for a while. There are some benchmarks out there, but really it's only fair to do such a comparison after the product is released and drivers are finalized.
Speculatively the 4850 is supposed to be competing w/ the 9800gtx, so it should be faster than the 8800gt, a good deal faster. Supposed to be $199. Might as well wait and see though right, it would be a shame to buy a card so close to the new ones. Also I believe it's only coming in 1gb flavors at first, a lower version w/ 512mb later. All just chatter around the courtyard though......
and thats 199 for the 1 gb?
Actually the 512mb 4850 seems to be the card that will be launched first. I haven't heard anything about a 1gb version so far. I haven't even heard anything about how much memory the 4870's are going to launch with.
thus far from the rumors I've seen the 4850 will have 512mb mem (no news ona 1gb version) and the 4870 will come in both flavors of 512 and 1gb.
Im sure PALiT or ASUS will release one
Im about to see how good my hd3870 is .. i just got it. its for sale btw.
seems like this goes to the 4850 easily especially if both are the same price.
4850 by a LONG LONG LONG shot.
4850 is 5% faster, on average, than 8800GTX
(not shown above, but from elsewhere) 8800GTX is 10-15% faster, on average, than 8800GT
= 4850 is 15%-20% faster than 8800GT
2 are fially announced ....
Separate names with a comma.
