Ouch. Personally though...I think the way Crysis knocks down the resolutions on ATI cards is disgusting. Selecting high res on the HD3870X2 is a no go..

Apparently this June theres supposed to be a whole new line of ATI cards. That being the 4000 series. There's supposed to be a 4850, 4870 and a 4870 x2. Amongst the other mid range and low end. Like 4600 and 4400 etc.

Ugh, kinda disapointing to see the least. Though it was worth reading the review for;

That sound good to me. Sounds like ATI will be on top this time around :).

Wait for good reviews, they're using old drivers, and note they don't have any pics of the front of the card.
