I wonder how the 4890 will stack against the GTX 280 which is now at $290?

lol sorry for the bad spelling i had just got back from work and was really tired and i could not help myself, i mean really 8800gt beeting a 4870x2 because of "bad" ATI drivers?

LOL

Oh and i have had many ATI cards and never had a driver problem,but with my nvidia cards......

The only issue I've ever had with AMD/ATI and display drivers is in the realm of Linux, but in the past year they've made leaps and bounds when it comes to Linux support. Winderz support however, has always been top notch IMO

ATI drivers are fine. These cards are fine. I have the sapphire Toxic 4870 1GB version (stock oc'd to 780/2000 respectfully) and it puts a whoopin on both my 3870's in crosfire. I must say though, I have never had problems with ATI cards or their drivers in quite a while.

I am glad though these are coming out as it will drop the price of the 4870's. Now I can afford to buy another for some crossfire lovin!! I think I will pass on these cards till the next generation comes out as these are just a minor bump in clock speeds and will be a nary of performance difference.

I agree killer...Pyrophorics you should really not post anything like that in the future because you're embarassing yourself. You really don't know what you're talking about.

Eh, great cards but the worst driver support on this planet.

They couldn't code to save their lives. 

 

My 8800GT is on par with my 4870X2 and it's all because of drivers. Extremely poor ATI drivers, extremely good nVidia drivers (lately).

Really well you must not of been used a ATi card in many years coz there drivers are and have been fine for a long time,i have much worse problems with Nvidia drivers crashing under vista.

And saying that your 8800GT is on pair with a 4870x2 just shows what a uneducated idiot you realy are 

and you should just not post untill you actuly do some homework.

By being loose with your grammer you make yourself look immature. I mean of all things using the word "coz"? There is only one L in until. I know it is easy to get emotional and just blast out on the keyboard, but take a deep breath and format what you are trying to say properly.

You can have your recession. I'm not participating.
