    That HD4870 is just OC'ed, the SuperRV770 thingy is supposed to have 1 GB buffer. That new RV770Pro PCB is Sapphire's preparation to face a market where they could have to lower its price to even $130 if market-forces push it to.

    That 4870 has a special bios that alot of 4870 users would like to flash too! And yea I think the 4850 non-ref should be a little cheaper tho.

    Lol, the sticker on the 'HD 4870 Black Edition' looks a bit like the score background from old DooM games :roll:

    I wonder if the new HD4870X2 gets a unlocked bios, just like the Black Edition from Diamond :rolleyes:

    not really a hot deal on either of those considering the prices on the regular models...
