Default 4890 Spotted

At PCV online $340 bucks.


Gigabyte GV-R4890-1GH-B Radeon 4890 1G DDR5 PCI-E Video Card

Release price is always high I guess.

The price makes sense if the rumors of performance are correct.

Which rumor are you were referring too? Theres a 30% rumor. Not sure I buy that.
Performance doesnt necessarily follow clocks but I'm guessing 750 GPU to 850 GPU is almost 15% increase. Although there was also a rumor of OC to 1GHZ.
While discussing rumors, any idea when a review might apear?

Any review will appear when it appears. As it stands, I am still setting up our new GPU test rig so I can't really comment on performance even if I wanted to.

Hehehe looks like the product page disappeared (saw it there yesterday though)

After seeing F@H EUEs and temps hitting 92 degrees C on my Radeon 4850, the first thing I'll check on the 4890 is if they have improved the reference cooler. Hopefully they closed the gap between the aftermarket coolers a little, so 85 degrees C won't be the standard load temp...
