Hi all, good to be new.

A few people around the net are saying that the 4870 X2 will cost under $499 USD (don't know what currency you talk in here) Although, the 4-series naming scheme is very doubtful at the moment.

Yeah, I'm guessing around the price of the 3870X2. At double the speed or so that will be a good deal. (Assuming the rumours are true).

Once again, ATI tries to tell the gaming development community that we don't need TMUs. Once again, the performance will be sketchy and the Crossfire drivers won't come close to what Nvidia SLI can do.

The release is scheduled for June. A single GPU is suppose to be 40% faster than the HD3870, but they are going to need alot more if they want to compete with Nvidia's current lineup for games like Crysis and Call of Duty 4.

I wonder if the current AMD layoffs are going to affect the ATI section of the company.

If these cards come out at less than $400 USD each (the X2s I mean), I am totally prepared to get rid of my 8800GTXs and never go on SLIzone forums again!

Oh boy...looks like this little phase of mine will not end soon...

The official clocking of the HD4870 is 750MHz which is a far cry from the 1050MHz they have probably been demonstrating is closed door testing.

The 4870X2 is probably at the same clock speed as the HD4870, so this will be another disappointment for DAMMIT.

Radeon HD 4870/4850 official game performances charts - http-en.hardspell.com/doc/showcont.asp?news_id=3555 (can't make links - post count must be greater than 1..)

just found this "official" performance comparison: 4870 vs 9800GTX and 4850 vs 8800GT - looks like ATI's pulling ahead...
