What's with GPU-Z reporting the memory clock speed at 900MHz there? It just seems inexplicible when the HD 4850 has the memory clocked to ~1000MHz. I wonder if it's actually genuine?

how can that be a 4870? 56.7gb/s memory bandwidth. 900mhz (effective) memory.. compared to 2.0ghz (effective) or whatever the 4870 is going to have. Im guessing it's an engineering sample with some ddr3 strapped to it. Or its just a plain 4850.

3dmark is worthless as a benchmark.

Well, that confirms what I'd been wondering. But it's rather annoding that they'd insist on calling it "GDDR5," when it clearly would be QDR, not DDR. I'm pretty sure the marketting geniuses would have NO problem selling the superiority of it without requiring it be one number higher than GDDR4.

I'm not entirely sure I'd trust that though. I would wait until the actual reviews come out before making any judgments.
