Put it this way: if rumors are correct and the R700 is basically made up of TWO HD4870 cores (which are more powerful than the one on the HD4850), that card would be bottlenecked by a PCI-E 2.0 16x interface. I think not.

'Nuff said.
Now if i wanna upgrade my ""Yellow"" rig to a 4850 does it worth it???

i mean does my 2.8Ghz opty will bottleneck thevideo card, or i should upgrade to a new platform (intel or am2+)????
