We last talked about AMD's upcoming HD 4850 X2 SKU, last month and a launch timeframe of September, was being touted at that time.

HD 4870 X2 sibling awaiting NVIDIA's next move?


The anticipated appearance of the HD 4850 X2, married with GDDR3 memory and, endowed with a claimed price tag of $399, is somewhat of a mystery at this time, states this article from Fudzilla.

It is believed that with its behemoth brethren, the HD 4870 X2, selling well and not experiencing any shortages, the delay in launching the HD 4850 X2 is a tactical one on the part of Sunnyvale, CA based AMD.

We surmise that with NVIDIA's 55nm GTX 280 + offering in the works, AMD may use the price to performance ratio of its HD 4850 X2 part, to put a spoke in NVIDIA's wheels - Yet again.
