Following on the tail of the announcement of the ATI Radeon HD 4850, it gets a bigger brother in the form of the ATI Radeon HD 4870, just announced today.
The HD 4870 is a dual slot card, PCIE 2.0, with 512MB of DDR5 memory and a clock speed of 725 MHz. The memory speed is 900 MHz, designed with 800 stream processors.
The games just keep getting prettier, and the graphics cards just keep getting tougher. The good thing is that the Radeon HD 4870 will only set you back about US$230, so we’ll be looking towards it as an affordable way to get your Crysis fix.
