    Thanks for the news, W1z. Hopefully this will put an end to some of the speculation that has so plagued this launch. :toast:

    wow!

    if the 4850 CF almost beat gtx280 i think 4870 CF will destroy it and a single card will be a match to 260

    nice from AMD-ATI so they'll survive and we'll have competition at least in gpu market...


    this is a good move from AMD they killing Nvidia launch

    drivers can also mature by time, the 4850 sells for around 1440 nok here in norway
    komplett.com got it in some of their etail store's, in norway, sweden and danmark
    http://www.komplett.com/

    i think AMD did the right thing, and the 4850 looks great, as you can see the price is around the level of 3850 when it was first released

    ATI is :nutkick: NVIDIA

    Are you doing a preview? Right now TUL seems to be the only partner selling these cards.

    Great now I'll selll my 8800GT and jump back on the ATi band wagon.
    Actually on my X1950pro right now, since another one has died on me and getting a RMA.
    Thats three in total.
    Loved the performance but the longevity is a bit short for my liking.

    Do you predict the supplies to be healthy? Since you tell there's chaos?
