I just checked on newegg.com and found the cards right there. I was like holy crap, ATI is fooling us on false information. I thought they were coming out on the 25, but I see this is a nice surprise.
I checked some reviews on it and it seems like a little beast of a card! Beats the 9800GTX slightly and its only $200!!!
The 9800GTX's are supposed to drop in price, but only EVGA has one at the price of $200.
I can't wait for the 4870, I will finally have a piece of hardware that can run Crysis on high without getting 5-15 FPS.
What your take on this card, for me the 280 GTX's are way too overpriced when a 2 card crossfire of these 4850's almost beats it.
PS: Why does Intel create Crossfire chipsets and amd create Nvidia chipsets?
Who's going to think about getting it or one of its family members?
