    Looks exactly like my X1950 Pro, with the exception of a better cooler. Perhaps when I find out the pricing I'll splash out and hopefully manage to get 125fps steady on Call of Duty 4.

    125FPS? wows.
    I normally stick with the same as my monitor's refresh rate!

    Back on topic, It'll be nice if ATI can finally give nVidia a run for their money - good competition drives innovation.

    you know CoD4 doesnt run on Q3 engine like the other CoD games, why do you need 125fps :p

    the heat sink has been revised the fan has more blades "duh, i know" , the copper fins are wider and are flayed outwards towards the end of the card.

    4850 pricing

    Well, about prices - as far as I know, it will be a very interesting battle. For example, I have a 4850 in stock(I work in a computershop) - of course, we can't start selling them until the 25th - and it's price will be about 175 eur, compared to GTX 280 that we received also(alas, only 5 pieces which sold out in the first day), and it's price is about 510eur. So, if the rumors are true(don't have the possibility of testing them myself) that 4850 in crossfire beats a GTX 280, then nvidia just might be in trouble with their GT200 series.
