That's because only the HD 5870 is out, the lower end stuff will come out at a later time.

I looked at some benches on guru3D, and I'm kinda disappointed. It only beat the 295 it like 2 or 3 things, and most of the time it was just marginally outperforming the gtx 285. I don't know how guru thinks you are getting twice the performance for your dollar than you used to. I mean, I'm sure with some driver updates it'll get a little better but still.

Fry's employees are pretty much a joke. I've probably met 2 or 3 that actually know what they are talking about when it comes to hardware. I even asked one guy about the difference between two of their monitors and all he did was look at the description of each and tell me what was different... thanks captain obvious... lol

LOL...well if the 5870s arent all that great maybe i'll look into a GTX 285/295. Im sure the price on them will drop a little bit, especially with the 300 series coming out soon

I think its an excellent card, with pre-mature drivers it already smokes the GTX 285, and its close to the GTX 295, and with real drivers it could get even better.

Is the new HD 5870 better, much better or not as good as the HD 4850 X2?

Better definitely, it tops the HD 4870X2 already and is slightly slower than the GTX 295.
