    A 4850 review at XS

    http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...d.php?t=191096

    This card seems pretty sick for 200$ 1900 x 1200 no aa high settings card stock on crysis gets about 30 fps.

    I think I'm going to have to go with a 4870 x2 2 gb model whenever they come out.

    Scores look very impressive for $200, will be a nice bang for buck card.

    I'm with you guys. I'm going for a 4870X2 for sure. It will be a nice upgrade from my 2900XT.

    At that price point it needs to be an 8800GTS killer, granted that's no much more than the 8800GT, but yea it's looking nice.

    Not really at the same price level with the 8800GT going for around $130, you need to compare the HD4850 to the say 8800GTS 512 at least, even the GTS prices hover around $180 these days after rebates

    What really drives me nuts is knowing that as more and more ATI cards come out the X1900XT(X) cards are going to sell for like $50 a pop really soon... I have one in my gf's machine (that I used to use) and it hurts to know it's going to be almost worthless compared to what's out there...

    I'm glad to see ATI pushing the pace... I love both companies and glad to see the competition going strong!!

    Well is the say 2x 3870's in Crossfire faster or about the same as a 3870X2?

    I'm really curious since I think the 4870 cores will be my first dual card system probably, just not sure which one to really go with. Dual 4870's or 4870X2... hmmmmm.

    4870x2 is not just 2 HD4870s thrown onto one PCB. Its actually a dual-core die. The R700 core vs. the R770 that the 4850/4870 uses. I'm not sure if that's gonna make it faster then 2x HD4870 in Crossfire, or slower? I'd be willing to bet faster
    The will to live will always outweigh the ability to die

    I'd think faster as well. Just curious is all if anything was spilled totally on the new dual core card yet since I haven't been following it 100%. Guess I gotta really look at other systems with dual cards, single dual core card, etc for cooling setups and all that and decide really from that maybe.

    I'm getting to the point of itchin for a new card yet at the same time its like, do I really need one. Then I remind myself, im an OCer

    New Toy FTW.

    I have been waiting for these cards, I need the X2 If the X2 is a dual core GPU, that will make it the most powerful GPU available, with 1600 SPs.

    Well not sure about being dual core die, that would have worse yields but it won't need a bridge chip for communicating between the two dice so scaling will be better.
