I was under the impression that Stormrise was a console game primarily that they ported to PC using only the DX10 API (aka, lazy and financially suicidal in the current market). Of course then they gave interviews and hyped it all up.
Your impression would be correct.

I am probably wrong but like the idea. If a heavily OC 4890 is able to compete with a 295, then the next hi end gen should be equivalent to a 295 but with only one chip. This would make an X2 offering the same as 2 295's, and X2 crossfired the same as 4 295's. ?

just a thought

An OC4890 compete with two 295's in SLI?! That 4890 would have to be cooled with solid hydrogen and placed on the dark side of Pluto to have a fighting chance.

Sorry, I did not make myself clear. A current Heavily OC 4890 can compete with the current 295. Single gpu vs dual. Not beat it, just compete with it. Then the next generation chips from ATI, 5800, should be the equal to or better than the current high end dual chips,4870X2,295. From there you can use the 1=2 extrapolation.

This would also apply to the new g300 chip, 1=2.

I just think it is exciting that we are looking at an incredible leap in GPU power. If I can buy a card that has one chip and is as fast or faster than any two chip card, it will effectively render this current generation obsolete.

This time around I am waiting for all of the cards to make it to market before buying. I am a little tired of looking at the number two spot all of the time and will stuff nvidia into my spider case if ati doesn't get it right.

You can only do crossfire with cards of the same series and core. So yes, 4890 and 4870 would be able to use Crossfire.

Would the 4890 have to sacrifice any of its clocks to match the 4870?
Would be better saving some more and getting a 4890 instead.
