HD4870 X2 listed early
 
For those of you eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Radeon HD4870 X2, the wait is almost over. While the card was rumoured to arrive on the 28th July it now appears more likely that mid to late August will see retailers having them on their shelves. However some retailers are jumping the gun and listing the card already:
 
We found Sapphire's HD4870 X2 2GB GDDR5 listed for €433 on two sites. No surprise price-wise, and as expected the GDDR5 flavored version comes first. The card runs at 2x 750MHz and 2x 900MHz for the core and memory. It has a 2x 256-bit memory interface, 2x 800 stream processors and 2x 40 texture units...Nvidia's 55nm GT200 is expected in September.

The DDR3 version of the HD4870 X2 is expected to arrive a little later and around the same price as the NVIDIA GTX280.
 
Would you pay €433 for the Radeon HD4870 X2?
