    I, even as a fanboi didnt expect this.

    I guess ever since I went from my 2900XT 1GB to my 4850 512MBs I disregarded that a simple memory increase could give performance.

    We need a W1z review up in here!

    It goes to show the power of GDDR5! 1gb on a 256bit bus with those numbers is still amazing. I wonder how Nvidia's new cards will fare with GDDR5 and a 512bit bus! I wonder if the 512bit bus will really be needed?
