Early HD 4850 X2 Pictured
 
A few pictures of an early sample HD 4850 X2 from Sapphire have found their way onto the net.  Based on AMD's R700 core, this dual GPU card is looking to be the "budget" high-end king, supposedly outperforming Nvidia's GTX280 card by 8-34% at a lower price of $399.
 
The HD 4850 X2 will have clock speeds of 625Mhz and feature 2GB of GDDR3 memory.  The card was earlier reported to have a release time sometime September, which has obviously already passed.  Hopefully these pictures signal an imminent release.
 
 
 
Looking forward to this "budget" high-end beast?
