We've known it was going to be 850 reference clock and 875-900 OC clocks for a few days now I said it would overclock to 1ghz.

The price point is very attractive. With a few price cuts over the next few months I'm sure these will be a very popular buy.

I'll have to see some comparisons vs. the 4870 before I go and buy one of these... vs. buying another 4870... but I like the price, if it is better...

Yeah...they're not revolutionary GPUs by any means, but the price will make them a very strong competitor.
