    A stock speed of 30MHz over the highest overclock bit have managed with a 4870 1GB looks good! I'd be interested to see how close this gets to the GTX285 speed and title as the fastest single GPU solution!

    Wouldn't be surprising if it's real, after all they haven't brought out a card in two weeks :rolleyes:

    probably going to rival GTX 285? just a cheaper option though... causing GTX 285 sales drops by summer?...

    If the rumors are true (probable), what do you think the chances are that AMD will retake the crown of fastest single gpu solution?

    It's debatable whether this will top the GTX 285, but what I will bet my bottom dollar on is it will be much cheaper, and with out a doubt much better value bang-for-buck wise.

    Clock speed increments or swapping shader speed for clock/mem speed is ****ing pathetic, just give us the best card you can manufacture you *******s /rant

    highly unlikely this will top fastest single GPU. that's why rumour-vile also have nVidia making GTX275 to compete (note: not gtx290, so slower than gtx280).

    still, impressive clocks, let's see what other manufacturers with third party coolers can do.

    Sounds like it will be the last of the 4800 series, and probably the best, although typically the top-end of a line has a pointed price premium :(
    So the 4870 may remain the best deal of ATi's lineup.

    But still, I reckon it could give the GTX280 a proper run for it's money now ;)

    4880 to be a single slot revision but running a lot cooler than a 4850 and with higher clock speeds? Now that would be good to see :)

    I was hoping that the 4890 would retail for around 200 of the Queen's finest, given that a 1GB 4870 can be had for £170. Hopefully that pre-order price is just a conservative guess:(

    It'll be nice when this helps push down prices of the GTX 280/285 etc. (My GPU might go to someone else & I'd like a small upgrade :D)
