Well the numbers do look to be to good to be true. Well maybe the 9900 GTX will perform this good. Though I hope ATI comes on top and stays on top for at least 6 months.

I did a little checking into posts around the net with this and I think those benchmarks look a little funny .. Time will tell it won't be that long and these cards will be out for reviews and some real benchies will be seen.. I don't usually go for stuff like this till the actual cards are in reviewers then customer hands.. funny benchmarks are leaked out but no pics of the actual cards that I could find..

'Nuff said about pre-release info.

anyone know when the 4870 is supposed to be out?
i keep hearing its going to be before the end of Q2 2008 so june 30th or earlier....
anyone have proof like ATI giving a press release or is that also rumors?
and also do review samples get given out before the product hits the market?
im going to be building myself a pc this summer and i want to know how long i should wait lol

ATI nor Nvidia sends out press releases until the actual release date.

This one is easy. YES. Sometimes weeks before...sometimes DAYS before.
