I've been hearing people say these cards have a 700MHz core ceiling without BIOS changes? Anything of the sort on your end? Or is that just for the 4850?

In car terms, I believe this is called "pegging the speedo"

790Mhz core
4400Mhz (DDR) memory

I need a new Rivatuner to take it further.

That sucks just as much as getting stuck on the highway at the 255Km/h limited, knowing you car is fully capable of 280+

What was the 3d mark vantage graphics score? I'm assuming the review contains just the overall score?

Yes it contains only the overall score. I will be posting the breakdown of the scores in later reviews but on this one I did not have the time for it unfortunately.

Do we have any idea when(if) a 1gb version of this card is going to release?

Great review Sky, truly the best 4870 review I have seen. I am always impressed by your reviews and again you did not disappoint. Keep up the great work.
