I wouldn't say their crap, AMD just sacrificed temperature for noise level. The coolers are capable of the cooling the card much better with a higher fan speed.

any place or anyone showing the temps at 35% or 100% fan spped .

for comparison my current palit card remains at 40 C with 35% fan speed at default, thats with all the cable clutter in the case .

Yes, I believe TPU shows them at that speed. That would not be a fair comparison anyway, you don't own a R770.

Does anyone know if the HD 4850 or HD 4870 will support CrossFire with a HD 3870? CrossFireX is supposed to allow CrossFire between GPUs outside of the same family but that wasn't seen much according to the chart on AMD GAME. If they can CrossFire, then I am sold for one + a X48 motherboard. If not, I'll have to see how the 9800 GTX+ performs.

Cheers,

well if my CPU wasn't such a bottleneck id consider it, i think after i get my 3870 running good for me next step is CPU but can't decide to go x2 6000 or Core2, the 6000 is cheaper to go to of course for me as ECS gurantee's 125w support and so does the local shop that sold me this Nforce4 AM2 board

@Candle - how are you finding the 3870, thought you only had eyes for nVIDIA?

Crossfire between family's is supported. You can run a 48xx alongside your 3870.

I was wondering the same. What made you get a 3870 after hating them so much?

That's exactly why people buy ATI products...everything is priced right, prices fall when market doesn't receive them well.

To be honest i am getting massively confused with all the names and such, i think it was about time both companies started a new naming scheme; someone on here (can't remember who) posted in what rank nVidia cards went and i took one look at it and passed out.

So what do these cards match in the nVidia camp? on price and performance? or is this a question that quite simply cannot be answered?

A company does not name its products to retaliate to a competing company. Everything becomes 'current generation' once it hits the market. The HD4000 is not a series of products out to compete with NVidia's offerings on a particular generation's basis but more of on a price domination. Currently there's no product from NVidia under $400 that can beat the $199 HD4850.

I'm excited to see what Nvidia is gonna put out to compete with the HD4870, it's gonna wreck at only $299:nutkick:

Overclocked 8800 GTS and 9800 GTX and by a substantial margin. HD4850 doesn't overclock as well as those too, so in the end they would be around the same performance, despite the Radeon being a bit faster and cheaper.

And to be fair, it's worth mentioning they are going to go down in price and get an incredible boost with 177.35.
Also 8800 GT is marginally slower and price is a lot lower, you can have two 9600GT/HD3870 for around the same price which performa lot better, etc...

I'm not talking about what a board-partner has to offer, I'm talking about what NVidia has to offer. HD4850's OC is limited arguably by the fact that it shares the same core as a HD4870, and OC is supposed to be limited, add to that, the core runs hot and the reference cooler just about keeps it operational. When HIS jumps in with their blue-PCB and IceQ cooler, things will change (see, how I'm talking about what a board-parter has to offer, using your logic?). Remember how the initial BIOS of HD3850 restricted you from taking the core beyond ~730MHz ?

I'm thinking it will overclock fairly well, 90+ degrees temperatures might be what is holding it back.

I've said this quite of a bit of late, but if ATi release a 4850 in AGP (highly doubtful) I won't know if I should laugh or cry.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I had the impression the guy was asking with the intent of buying a card soon. To that purpose my post is helpful, your's is missleading IMO at the least.
