Palit seems to have a hard time producing their products though...I waited for months for their 1gb 4870 card to hit the retailers but gave up after Xmas and went with another brand, I still haven't seen it anywhere yet(at least here in the U.S.) and it's almost March.

With GTX280's at NewEgg for under $300bucks now it's just not worth getting these cards unless you miss out on the GTX280.

This should be the first card capable of playing Crysis on max settings...at least, in SLI.  Available frame buffer was the limit before, with Crysis at 25x16 using something like 1.5 GB graphics buffer...and no card on the market available to do such a thing.  Call me back with benchmarks, and a comparison of a 4870 2GB, though.

Looks like a 4850X2 with that fan design. I could only imagine three of those in tri-SLI. Crysis killers? Who knows? LOL.

How about because its a negligible difference in performance for the extra money at this point.  I regularly use up more than 1GB of VRAM in my heavily modded Oblivion - this isn't a waste on a GPU of this power.

why don't they ever upgrade to GDDR5?

Nvidia has heard our cries and with the next generation of Nvidia graphics cards they'll start using GDDR5 also with a super wide bandwidth unlike ATI's 256Bit.

It cost more and they make them as cheap as they can.
