Default ATI Radeon HD 4900 Rumors

ATI Radeon HD 4900 Rumors

Hardware-Infos has some insider information regarding the next GPUs from ATI. March is apparently the month where well see RV740 and RV790 chips surface and their source says the RV790 will be the HD 4900. No specs yet unfortunately.

There is still silence about the amount of stream processors. But we can assure that there will be more than with the RV770, so that the RV790 will not just be a half-hearted frequency update.

why dont they just increase the speed/quality? of their sp's rather than just adding more.

i understand the heat issue, but cant they find a fix for this?

They have said the next line wont be till at least Q3.

So if this is true it makes more sense it will be the 4900...or maybe 4890?

They're doing that too (increasing clocks)

Well unless they can discover magic, they'll have to use the old fashioned way of using die shrinks, improving transistors, etc. And that takes time.
RV670 used fewer transistors, but a lot of that was because of going to a 256-bit bus. RV770 already uses a 256-bit bus, so they're not likely to be able to reduce transistor count much. As GPU's get faster, they will need more bandwidth, and they can't cripple the bus speed too much.
