    I will be happy if ATI can just make 2 4870x2's scale well or just remove the micro-stuttering problem plaguing 4870x2

    I'll be happy when they move away from the RV7xx and give us this new hotness! I want them to really stick it to nV and not just make nV sweat a little when nV still has the card gamers really look for. GTX260 with bios voltmod ftw $175 MSI cards??? TOO GOOD

    Nothing new here :ohwell:

    We already know AMD is working on MCM, and knew for months that AMD has/had keen interest in Sapphire's VaporX technology. The rumour was quashed time and again, and resurfaced time and again.

    Oh, and once in an MCM, those two RV870 dice behave as one single GPU. Feel free to add four HD< next > X2 cards in a system. Again, the rumour of MCM usage itself has been quashed+resurfaced time and again.

    Doesn't sound impressive..

    It's just another card that runs at faster frequencies, with a marginal % of more shaders and is pretty much the same architecture we've seen from GPUs for a few years now(if not more).

    I bet it will still tank in intensive situations, but at least we can play Prey at 400fps!

    ;rolls eyes;

    whatever, i cant afford even a miserable 9600 gt here (the cheaper cost 170 dolars and a normal family gets like 250 per month and we have to eat :cry: )

    Sounds sweet. I won't buy one, Ill probably wait a generation since I like my 4870 and will probably just get another one to xfire with.
