    Post Radeon HD 4850+ to fight GeForce 9800GTX+

    AMD is preparing an answer to Nvidia's recently released GeForce 9800GTX+ card. Overclocked Radeon 4850 cards are set for an introduction in the second week of July.

    Now we hear that ATI has removed all overclocking restrictions, giving add-in board (AIB) partners more room for new products. Our sources indicate that vendors are preparing a second wave of cards that will feature higher clocks for the GPU and the memory.

    Senior ATI officials told us that “4850 Overclocked” cards are likely to come with a core that is clocked about 50 MHz higher, while the GDDR3 memory will be clocked to get at least 5-6 GB/s of bandwidth. Cooling will also change. Pre-announcements indicate that overclocked cards are on their way from companies such as HIS, Sapphire and Diamond.

    Of course they would answer like that. ATI is not stupid and they have proven that with the design and release of the rv770.

    At 675 mhz the equivalent for the g92 core would be 729mhz. The thing that with better cooling solutions of the AIB partners, rv770 could go much higher while nvidia can't.

    it's is easier to use the + sign than type/say "overcloked version"

    LOL DAAMIT sure is on the upper hand

    It would be better if they just let user do the overclocking, release the software that let us save the setting into the card bios.

    4850 black edition, standard GPU cooler not included!! hahaha...

    They don't even have to release a + version. The 4850 is near enough the GTX+, the differences are just minimal. I reckon that the 4850+ will storm the GTX+.

    Within few driver releases, the 4850 will easily overtake the gtx+ anyways.

    So why do they need a new name for an overclocked card? how pathetic!
    The difference between intelligence and stupidity is that intelligence has
    its limits.

    What's with all the plus-es all of a sudden?

  12. #12
    Is this verified? The plus sign? Not that it is such a big deal but i guess ati will go to something like 4860 or something.

    Even if they do use the + sign, it will be completely ironic towards nvidia's face. Just to show them how rediculous they are for putting pluses and minuses on the cad names.

    The overclocked name is up to the ATI partners.
    Like XV/Palit's Sonic, Gainward's Golden Sample/GLH, ASUS's TOP, XFX XXX etc

    i7 4770 | 24GB | Z87 Mpower | 1070FE | 512GB/1TB/2TB | WiNDy FC500 | U2713hm | 2.0sII | 650 P2

    Yeah, that's quite ignorant. But he admitted after all that he is an nvidia fanboy so don't take him all too seriously.
    Nevertheless I think the card should hav been named something like the above post suggests.
