Our local computer shop is selling them as well. $190 CDN, which is pretty much the price of the 4890. I'd love to get my hands on one. There was 4 in stock today, but I didn't have any money with me :(

hmm... HD5770 is listed for $159.9 on newegg.com which is almost the same as HD4870(1G). Toms, when are we going to have the compairson between these 2 cards?
More importantly will HD5770 pushs HD4870 and HD4850 even cheaper?
I will defintely love to see the price drop of HD4870 and HD4850!... :D

Looks like it will be on par with the 4870, except with several more display ports and probably improved power efficiencies here and there.

What will the 128-bit memory do to the performance?

By the way, base on the nature of the crossfire setup... I guess we will not be able to pair up HD4xxx with HD5xxx on crossfire...

Wondering if there is going to be a price drop of HD4870 and/or HD4850... will it be better to spend the money for a pair of HD4870/HD4850 or a single HD5870/HD5770?

I hope Toms is going to roll out a lot of reviews on these setups... :D

Even more pain for nvidia. So much for their too little too late gt220 "budget" cards.

It would make sense for the HD4870 and HD4850 to undergo a bit of a price drop, which would make the 4870 an absolute steal. AMD/ATI seems to be taking care of business at least on the graphics side of things.

[citation][nom]joeman42[/nom]Probably did this to embarrass Nvidia's "new" GT210/220s.[/citation]
You guys are aware Nvidia 300 series cards are going to smoke ATI's 5800 cards right? Nvidia has ALWAYS been the video card king. ATI has been making a good showing of late and that is good for all of us since it creates price wars which benefits us.

ATI's 5800 cards I have seen tested only slightly outperformed Nvidia's current line up (not talking about $$) and they should do just that but the margin was very small. Nvidia is in no rush to get their cards out...DX11 games aren't even around yet so why rush the product out?

Don't get me wrong I am a huge AMD fan and I am enjoy seeing them putting out some decent vid cards but I have always used Nvidia cards since they always have higher performance hands down. It is just odd to hear so many people say how ATI is "hurting" Nvidia because it released it's cards first. They are getting some of the premature DX11 market but they might be pissed when they see what Nvidia presents us with.

I could see them start to phase out the 4xxx series now... they really have all their bases covered now that the 5750s are out. Now the manufacturers just need to start pumping out the cards.

@edilee i agree, AMD are showing their cards way to soon.

I can see it as an attempt to crab the early market share, I bet nvidia is going to drop a bomb when they "quietly" (as amd does always did) slip in their next cards.

But as it stands, people are making judgments way to soon.

why are they so big! what ever happened to the flag ship cards being single slot and shot enough to actually fit in normal ATX cases! (like the 7800)

after the 8800 nvidia even said "this will be the last monster gfx card"
but they just keep getting bigger and bigger. they completely trampled on the ATX standard that mobo, case and psu makers had stood by for years by making the cards LONGER than the motherboards!

my current card is an 8800gt, single slot, normal length, just one power connector, not requiring its own psu! and I have no urge to upgrade until something of the same size comes out, or something truly revolutionary.

I'm currently looking to get both a graphic card and new PSU to run it...

I'm thinking that even if 4870 prices drop substantially--I might still save money going with the 5750--because I could get away with a much lower-power system. (rumors say 5770 at 108 watts load and 5750 at 86!)

I am really looking forward to Tom's benchmarks for these cards.

in regards to nvidia and their upcoming fermi card it is mainly focused on GPGPU tasks rather than gaming. as for amd they have all their bases covered across most of the price ranges so i dont see nvidia anytime soon gaining any foothold in the foreseeable future.

im not really pro in this but isnt it a bit expansive for a 128 bit?

am i the only one who likes to see ati on top?
maybe its because when nvidia's on top and dominating they always charge you shittacular prices. Like pink panther said 200 bucks for a 8600. Or getting a performance dominator like the 4870 for 150!!!!!!

Quick feet the new and improved Ati has.............

High to mid to low end in less than three weeks. Nvidia better be coming out with their super-processor type GPU already or before the Xmas break in order to nullify Ati's momentium. It looks like the holiday season is all ATi/AMD's!
