Hope these haven't already been posted. For the estimated price these things should be beasts, can't wait for some more legit benchies but hopefully this will do.

these benchies have been posted somewhere... but I can't recall so its good to have benchies (real or fake) up again

I like benchies

These benchies look way more realistic than the previous 4870 being up to 50% faster than the 9800gx2. So I guess it is safe to assume that the 4870 used in previous benchies had to be an X2. Although I am still questioning the legitimacy of these benchmarks as any "idiot" can post up some fake benchies made on exel (or whatever ppl use) from their mom's computer claiming that they are what they are.

My little rant.

They aren't benchmarks. He just made a diagram showing how they would perform against eachother, as per the rumors. At least, that's how I read into it.

That's how I see it.

I want to make up some benchies *POUT*

Sorry. I did not intend to target these benchmarks specifially, but all the pre-benchmarks in general. It's just that the anticipation is brutally killing me inside. Waiting kills.

First THIS ISN'T A BENCHMARK it's a GRAPH OF A GUESSTIMATION !! :pfff:

Really? I mean REALLY? :heink:  (ala Seth Meyers on SNL)

C'mon, it's not a benchmark even, it's a fabrication based on the "It is said that they are respectively 20% more than X and Y...." can I just point out a few things which make me laugh about the scientific-ness of the originating thread at OCW, this passage in particular;

In 3DMARK06, Radeon HD 4870 will be 32% faster than 8800GT, 22% faster than 9800GTX and 12% faster than 4850.

AS for 4850, it will be 20% faster than 8800GT and 10% faster than the 9800GTX.


That first line ignores the whole damn premise and then F's up the interpretation of his own graph. [:thegreatgrapeape:5]
The graph is base on the HD4870 being 20% faster than the GF9800GTX, not 22% (132/110x100 = 120% ie 20% faster) and is not 12% it's 10% faster than the HD4850 by his own made up numbers, at least he gets the first one right.
As for the last line yes once again the baseline is 20% faster than the GF8800GT restating the obvious, but actually getting it right this time, but once again according to his numbers the HD4850 is not 10% faster than the GF9800GTX, but 9.0909repeating % faster.

For someone so poor at math, I wouldn't bother with these made up numbers, even the author of the graph obviously doesn't know WTF it means.

So once again.... REALLY !?! [:mousemonkey:1]

Seriously people stop posting stuff you'd be embarassed being associated with because it makes you look almost as stupid as Blootooth.

If' they're selling the 4850 for $200, then it'll really rock

If you read bluetooth's comments down th page it sorta blows his opnion out the water.

My only question is this based on the 4870 512MB or 4870 1GB? Thats the reason I hate most benchmarks for the HD2900. They never show the 1GB whcih does add a bit of performance in high quality texture games.
