So in case you have heard the rumor, it's correct.
AMD decided to pretty much piss off any editor today by lifting the NDA for the Radeon HD 4850 which was supposed to launch next week. For yours truly this means havoc, AMD had a press-meeting on Tuesday which we flew into. We returned yesterday with a card and started benchmarking. Normally it takes us 4-5 days to finish up a reference review so you can imaging that the press is pretty surprised to see the NDA being lifted today, completely out of the blue.
Luckily I did start working on the article yesterday already and pretty much I am half way through writing the review. At the earliest maybe tonight I'll have the Radeon HD 4850 review ready for you, including Crossfire results.
Bare with me, I'm doing my best to get you guys a full review and not some half-baked quickie stuff. BTW forget all the numbers you have seen leaked, the new driver issued yesterday shows the real performance of this product.
Check in regular as again, I hope to be able to finish and publish this review today, if not tomorrow.
But let me just state that it is absolutely insane what has happed today.
