Gigabyte Radeon HD 4890 Out of the Box

AMD has yet again stepped up excitement and anticipation surrounding a product-launch. This time, it's the company's fastest GPU: the RV790, whose single-GPU product, the Radeon HD 4890, is dressing up to go to office between April 6~8 worldwide. Taiwanese tech community website XFastest went found that volumes of the card by AMD partner Gigabyte have already reached a certain store.

The Gigabyte Radeon HD 4890 1 GB (model: GV-R489-1GH-B) is based on AMD's reference design, which has been pictured earlier, and whose early 3DMark performance figures have began surfacing. The card, features 1 GB of GDDR5 memory, which now seems to be the standard amount of memory on the reference design card. The unboxed card has been pictured from a good angle, which gives us a better indication of its length. It is longer than the HD 4870. Another scoop we can bring to you, is that from the first picture of the RV790 GPU that was published by DailyTech, it has been observed that the die is slightly larger than that of the RV770. What makes it larger is not known at this point in time.

With 3dfx you saw many strange things, they where into multigpu way before DX became used in games, and the only api's used where Opengl and Glide.

i meant something like that, just the 4gpu one, which wasnt alot smaller tbh.

3dfx developed SLI tech, for those who dont know, nvidia bought em, took sli tech, and threw away rest mostly.

Yeah,just like an overclocked 4870.:)
I don't know... 35% in 1920 is better than the increased clocks would foreshadow.

I dont have to worry about Card size due to my case.

I just wish they would get the clue to look at old Card Designs, like the Radeon 9700 Pro, i mean that is a ideal size for any top board.
