    The Taiwanese website version of Tom's Hardware is hosting a brand new first look at ATI's Radeon HD 4800 series cards. Unfortunately, if you want to read something more than the posted pictures and the "Redefine HD Gaming" marketing charts, you'll need someone or Google to translate from Taiwanese for you, as you might have already guessed. What's interesting are the pictures below, that show the upcoming cards in all their glory. They also confirm our previous story about the cooling solutions that will be used on both cards. The first card pictured is ATI Radeon HD 4870, the second one is Radeon HD 4850.

    Are those dual 6 pin connectors on the 4870?

    Fricken bloody monster the 4870 is. It needs 2 gd 6-pin connectors. I don't even want to imagine what the X2 needs. It nice to see that the 4850 is still comfortably the same design.

    I think it's dual 6 pin connectors: that's 1 power hungry card ... and it's not even the x2 one ...

    EDIT

    Megasty was quicker ...

    $329 for the 4870? ONLY???

    And $229 for 4850? ONLY???

    Quoted text was google translated, obviously ...

    If this is so, and the rumored nVidia prices are correct, then ATI has already won ...
     
    Rebo&Zooty, X-TeNDeR and Azazel say thanks.

    Darn it! 2 x 6 pins means I have to swap my other PSU back in my rig. There's no way I'm buying just one of these.:D

    I'm still shocked by these twin connectors... Perhaps these cards suck more juice than what has been "reported/leaked."

    Maybe I'll make a real spider for my next rig. I think I'll have to break out my 1600W UX3 for that :p

    Doesn't look nearly as cool as two 4870's. I'm a very feeble man... Plus, I don't want to wait the extra month. I want to max everything out on AOC now!

    Wow, the 4850 looks sweet. From what I heard, its supposed to be 125% faster than the 8800gt?

    The 4870 is a beast of a card though. I can't imagine the power requirements for a 4870 X2. :laugh:
