    Just think how fast the damn thing will be when OC'd. If the thing OC's great it'll be close to a 3 TF mastiff :wtf:
    It'll have to clock up to 938ish though...

    Obviously taken with a bag of salt :D

    woo hoo. Expect to see full review by Friday :p Just kidding.

    That review will be interesting. And more over the pricing should be perfect for AMD to come back and strike hard on NVidia.

    I guess I will hold off on my vc purchase. Save up money and then spend it later.

    Very eager to see your review W1z.

    That GPU-Z shot also says it does not have 800sp's. I don't think that's a glitch.

    see the problem is that if a single bench shows twice as fast, they can use it as a marketing scheme. take for instance the opengl fur bench. my 2900xt gets 2880 at stock, while a palit 512mb 9600gt gets 1546. in a real game, liek hl2episode2, the 2900 gets 43fps at 1650x1080 with 8xaa and 16xaf, the 9600gt gets 45fps under the same settings. it'ss all about the spin.

    now if they said a 4870 is twice as fast as the 9800gtx in crysis, or cod4, then that;d be something.

    Damn it. If its once again false statement, I might as well jump on the NVidia wagon.

    Ok, this is the 1st user results on the 4850 I've found to date. He has a QX9650 @ 4GHz with the 4850 at default (I believe). He scorced 15194 in 3D06.

    nice that's a score i cna believe my quad at 4GHZ paired with my 2900xt at 930core got 14800 so if this is true and if the card is at stock, the 4800 series will be a sweet setup.

    I've said this before, but if they release a 4850 in AGP I'd be pleased but pissed at the sametime. I've only just got my 3850. I've just released I have my 3850 at 730/980. Crazy!

    Sapphire 4870's 1gb versions if I can get them at launch, otherwise just two 512mb cards. I'm being foolish and paying for the expensive shipping too.:D

    I think there is a Newegg warehouse in Memphis. I think it's time you do some exploring, possibly some infiltrating, and get us some cards early!:D
