AMD strikes again with the Radeon HD 4870

The VGA market's never looked so fine

| Video Cards News | Posted: Jun 25, 2008 11:47 am

We saw the beginning of AMD's next-gen HD 4800 Series graphics cards last week with the launch of the 4850. As many of you would have seen, we tested it quite heavily in a multitude of setups to determine where it sits on the market at its respective price point. To reflect quickly back on our findings, it's an absolute corker of a card and should already have NVIDIA trembling a bit.

 

 

Now we shift focus onto the model we've all been dying to get our hands on. Sitting higher up the chain, the 4870 has arrived today. If the 4850 is anything to go by, this card is going to put immense pressure on NVIDIA to, at the very least, lower pricing on its new models; albeit it does have the 9800GTX+ up its sleeve.

 

In any case, now that the NDA is lifted you can be your own judge and look at all the coverage floating about around the web (which we'll continue to update in here over the next 12 hrs or so) :-

We'll have more articles go online soon; these including a trip to IBP once again to give the cards plenty of freedom in a 4GHz powerhouse as well as pairing them up for some more Crossfire (and CrossfireX) runs, too. So stick around folks, it's going to be another VGA-happy day.
