    Your're great. That totally makes sense now that I have some sense.... I guess that makes 6 senses nice a new record.

    Are there any reviews for 4580 with 1 GB in crossfire? I've tried searching but didn't come up with anything.

    Sight, Smell, Hearing, Taste, Touch, and the ability to know you meant to type card instead of CHIP. That makes 6.

    Get over yourself. Telling me I have no respect. I simply stated that the 9800Gx2 has 2 cores contradictory what you posted (even though it was an accident that you posted it) saying that it was a single chip. Are you going to give up or should I continue to traverse the forum pointing out all the incorrect stuff you post intentionally. Don't try to pin rank on me.

    Sorry I can't hear you over the sound of how awesome I am. :pimp:

    $399 is the preliminary sale set. It's been stated a while ago.. We'll have to wait and see.

    I couldnt wait anymore. I really think this card is going to be a winner but I got a pair of 4850s' instead.

    I have a 4870, currently. I was going to 4870X2 + 4870 in CF, but it seems that I might wait for the 4850X2 benchies. If they perform awesomely, I will do a 4850X2 + 4870 CF.

    Yep but 2 x HD4850's are cheaper and supposed to be faster than the GTX280 although I appreciate you need an Intel chipset board for the Xfire jobbie.

    I hope you have a 1Gb 4870 otherwise you're wasting 1/2 the memory of any x2 you try and run with it... unless they release a 1Gb x2 version.

    From a news article from October 16th it states that it's in the final stages with it's AIB partners. I'm thinking early next month.
    Zehnsucht says thanks.

    hmm, i've been waiting for a non-reference 4870X2 but it sounds more like i should just wait for one of these...

    A 4850x2 paired with a 4870x2 would run exactly like a pair of 4850x2s It would kinda waste the extra power of the 4870x2 but would still be faster than necessary :D

    If I can find buyers for my 4850 ICEQ4 Turbos I'll get a 4850x2.
