damn only time will tell
Thought I remembered seeing a short ago that GDDR5 wasn't seeing the expected speeds that the specifications allowed for. IIRC, the 4870 is known to see some improvement up to about 4000MHz mem, so the given memory clocks seem just a little weak. Of course, there are a few other features of GDDR5 that might make it perform better, clock-for-clock, so perhaps we'll be lucky enough to see a few of those?
