I guess it's save to say that once you lure in staff members from the Inquirer I guess that infects the entire staff, Tom's hardware slowly seems to have joined the bandwagon of trash journalism by releasing photo's and information regarding ATI's upcoming Radeon 4000 series. The photo's and information are on the loose everywhere, I guess there's no point then to keep the info covered for us either then.
These are the Radeon HD 4850 and 4870. Apparently these two series 4000 series cards will be powered by the RV770 chip which is built using the 55nm process and offers 480 Stream Processors. Both cards will feature a 256-bit memory interface PCI-Express 2.0 support, CrossFireX, Unified Video Decoder (UVD) 2 and DirectX 10.1.
The Radeon HD 4850 will be equipped with 512MB of GDDR3 memory and is reported to cost you merely $229 to $249 (not bad).
Above you can see the Radeon HD 4870 the new product reaching the high-end segment, this card will utilize one RV770 chip paired up with a pretty fun number of framebuffer, 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory. The HD 4870's price tag is proclaimed to be around the $329 to $349 margin. Both Radeon HD 4800 cards are said to be ready for a mid-June release. I guess the closer we get to Computex, the more info we'll find on these cards.
