    Taiwan-based English tech website OC Heaven has disclosed some performance figures of the upcoming ATI Radeon HD 4890 1 GB graphics accelerator. The tests run are two of the most popular synthetic benchmarks: 3DMark Vantage and 3DMark06. Also disclosed, rather verified, are the card's clock speeds as read by ATI Catalyst Control Center and GPU-Z. The test bed, from what the 3DMark06 window shows, consists of an Intel Core i7 920 CPU running at 2.66 GHz, coupled with 3 GB of system memory. In 3DMark06, the HD 4890 accelerator secured a score of 16,096 points, with SM 2.0 score of 6155, HDR/SM 3.0 score of 7521, and CPU score of 4836. In 3DMark Vantage, it secured a score of P10996. Catalyst Control Center reveals the card's memory bandwidth to be 124.8 GB/s, up from the 111 GB/s on its predecessor, the HD 4870. The early driver in use makes provides "RV790" as the device string to GPU-Z.

    Update (03/19):Ukrainian website Overclockers.com.ua has come up with a more comprehensive 3DMark shootout between cards in this segment. Radeon HD 4890 and HD 4890 CrossFireX are part of the comparison. The testers used an Intel Q6600 CPU running on an X48 motherboard with 4 GB of memory. The article can be read (Google-translated to English) here.

    That seems a little low. My GTX 260 beats that. :confused:

    I get a GPU score of about 10,800 which isnt affected by Physx, I thought the 4870 was capable of more than these results show. The 4890 should be even further ahead.

    dont always go by 3DM, as games dont tell lies.

    And 8800's score comparable with a 4850, but what do you think does better outside a synthetic benchmark? Don't know about anyone else here, but I play games, I like to benchmark, but end of the day I'd rather play games better.

    I suppose, we need to wait until some gaming benchmarks come out then.

    At clock speeds of 576 MHz core/999 MHz memory ?

    For reference, this the P score GTX 260-192 manages at stock speeds:
    [​IMG]

    Your GTX 260 at 756/1269 can't be used for a making the statement "My GTX 260 beats that.", "my overclocked GTX 260 beats that" sounds legit.

    Again, I'm not taking into account the differences in the test-beds, drivers, etc. between you and Guru3D :)

    Actually we need to wait till ATI provides official drivers for this card, as it is not fully supported yet so obviously the scores are a little low. Give it a couple of months and the drivers will improve substantially, and so will the scores.

    Vantage score stinks as long as Physx is calculated into the CPU score and total score.
    The 3dmark06 though is promising.... If this card matches the GTX 285, consider them sunk.

    You are also clocked to 3.6, that chip is at stock.

    Here's my GTX 280 stock clocks. Only GPU scores on both

    3DMark06: SM2.0: 6446 SM3.0: 7175
    Vantage: GPU: 10924

    HD4890 wins on 3DMark06 SM3.0 score but loses on rest. GTX 275 should match it nicely.

    edit: HD 4890 scores:
    SM 2.0 score of 6155, HDR/SM 3.0 score of 7521
    Vantage: GPU 9801

    Ah, something is not adding up with the 3Dmark06 results. I overclocked my 4870 to 850/975, using a E8400 at 3.60Ghz and this is my results:
    [​IMG]






    They used a 920 @2.67Ghz in which we all should know by now that 3D06 is cpu bound. The results should have been much higher.

    drivers is the same as 4870, with tweaks if theyve altered the core to make it more efficient, everyone knows its based on an better 55NM process, is that all, hope not :p

    All I meant by my card, was that I was comparing a heavily OC'd GTX 260, to effectively a heavily OC'd 4870, so thought they would be closer matched than these results.

    You are on XP, results are not comparable (XP scores higher).

    WarEagleAU: EastCoasthandle got 16155 3DMarks SM2:6907 SM3:8525 CPU:3364 on XP

    I hate that my work blocks pictures of yalls results. Looks to be a nice little improvement, but ATI needs to get on the Physx deal.
