Well guys, the review of this card is up and our time with it is just beginning. After having it for a little over 24 hours I hope you enjoy the review here:

http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/foru...radeon-hd4870-512mb-graphics-card-review.html

All overclocking will go in this thread since I only received the card last night and I haven't been able to achieve what I would call a good solid overclock yet.

We weren't missing THIS release. :thumb:

ENJOY!!! :thumb:

Did I just come at the right time and saw this review.. :thumb:

Thanks SKY, seems to be a solid performance card, especially beating the 9800GTX as you mentioned, which it was made to compete with. Also came really close to the GTX 280 is some benches/games.

Any idea when it is supposed to hit stores ? :biggrin:

Review looks good!

ATI really surprised me. I've got a 4850 ordered. Should be a decent upgrade from my 7900gs :)

I was at AMD yesterday and they quoted several times: "hard launch" but they were iffy about availability here in Canada. It all has to do with shipping, customs and a bevy of other crap the retailer here in Canada have to go through.

No worries, I'll keep an eye at stores. But thanks for the review, made my day. :thumb:

I do not mean to be an ass but...
With ATI catapulting this product into the void left in the $300 price point by Nvidia’s seemingly panicked move of reducing the price of their 9800 GTX to around $200, you would think they would want to get it would as soon as possible.
Umm.. Huh? "get it out as soon.." perhaps?

*Edit
No matter how impressive they look on paper, the one thing that stands out about the new cards is the HD4870’s inclusion of the new GDDR3 memory.
*Edit
Other than that ATI’s tradition of extremely PCB layouts continues unchecked.
Yes, their famous extremely PCB layouts. :p

/me thinks you were either very tired while typing or very eager to get it out.

Ok, I will stop.

Great review SKYMTL, I'm here at work and I have been refreshing hardwarecanucks and anandtech hoping to find some info on the hd4870. This really makes me want to ditch my 8800GTS 512. And the crossfire performance is so great it also gives me an excuse to ditch this 680i board and get something crossfire friendly. NCIX here I come...
