Default Radeon HD 4870 X2

How good is this card going to be? When does it come out? And will it fit on my maximus formula?

It might come out at the end of this month or probably at the beginning of next quarter at the latest

HD 4850 GDDR3 is coming the end of this month

HD 4850/4870 GDDR5 is expected to come out june/july.

Expect the HD 4870x2 to come out near the end of this year.

Most people have hopes that the HD 4870 will perform like a HD 3870x2, if thats the case then the 4870x2 performance would be like 4 3870's.

I highly doubt we're going to see gddr5 products a month from now.

If anything gddr4, the reason being is that gdd4 has never even come close to becoming mainstream and has only been featured in a couple cards to date.

Making the jump to 5 would not make any sense.

I don't think you've seen all the articles lately about how AMD are skipping gDDR4 and going straight to gDDR5....

I found this last night looking for some 9800gx2 benchmarks. I have no idea how reliable this is, I'm not a good judge for that so I'll let everyone else here decide.
