Gone, eh. I can confirm it was up and in stock when this was first posted. Oh well, I already bought a 4850 anyway.

AHHH....fell for it a 3rd time...oh wait...this is legit :na: 

I stopped by Best Buy tonight in the hopes that they put some out accidently. No store in my state has them in stock FYI and they don't go on sale there until what looks like the 30th. Funny though, they are going for $299 at BB. The 4850 is going for $199. Strangely they had a GT260 sitting out that I don't see on newegg....for anyone interested.

Yeah, you can see the card in the snapshot, but, its not there. Either way at the very least it does confirm that the card will be released any time now....

Hopefully by the end of today or early, early tomorrow morning (EST)

Oh yeah P.S. No 4870s were in transit either to any store in this state. Seeing that they did have 4850 in stock, this might be a bad sign that the 4870s will be in short supply and $500 on ebay.

P.S.S. Did the GT260 even launch yet? It was $400 something and one was sitting on their shelves all by it's onesies. Should I pick it up tomorrow morning and sell it on ebay?

I saw the 4870 on New Egg too. It said it was a deactivated item when I tried to add it to my cart though.

Funny thing is, I stopped by Best Buy tonight too. They had 3 4850s on the shelf. It sounds like the guy you talked to knew a lot more than the one I talked to. I don't think he even knew what a 4870 was. He couldn't give me an eta and started googling it while I was standing there.

I think the launch for the GT260 is tomorrow too.
June 25, 2008 2:16:24 AM

WOW. According to the expressview review the 4870 is only 10% slower on average than the GTX 280 and dominates the 260 for $100 less. Let the price wars's a good day to be a consumer. Go ATI! Compete!
June 25, 2008 2:34:42 AM

If you do a simple google product search you'll see there's a handful of sites listing the 4870 (since last week) at $330-340. Though they say "call" for availability of course.
June 25, 2008 3:28:01 AM was up they must have taken it down :[

Sorry no punk or anything like that it was on Newegg...

They say tomorrow is when all the reviews and everything come out....Newegg had it up for $309
June 25, 2008 3:30:10 AM

I'm so going to so buy one when it comes out, that's impressive man. it has to beat on my 8800gts 512, at least 30+ more frames on COD4. That's the game that I have so I go by that :kaola: 
June 25, 2008 4:47:38 AM

God, wouldn't that be money if the offered a rebate like they did with the 4850? Bring that price down to $275-$285 or something like that. That'd be so boss!

Did the page show anything about power requirements?

The information floating about all seems to say that the 4870 calls for 160 watts. In other words, while it DOES require two six-pin PCI-express power connectors, it barely uses the second one. (10 of ~75 watts maximum +12v capacity)
June 25, 2008 3:29:58 PM

I'm still more concerned about crossfire. I have a PCP&C 610 Silencer hoping to be able to crossfire. 49A on 12volt rail so I think it has enough amps. The review from a site I saw pegged their whole system in crossfire at around 400watts I think so I might be ok.
June 25, 2008 6:32:47 PM

I ordered mine on the Egg before it went out of stock.

Successfully charged and everything... can no longer cancel order.
