It wasn't less than 3 weeks ago that XFX announced that it would become an AIB Partner for ATi, and now they are already preparing to release their first Radeon HD 4000 series cards.

well, the 4850 and 4830 uses the same chip as 4870 so why not? Maybe they'll use narrower bus so the pcb becames smaller and thus easier and cheaper to manufacture.
Interesting idea at least if nothing more...

the reason why the 4850 doesn't run GDDR5 is because that is the incentive that ATI wants to only be on the 4870. if the 4850 ran GDDR5, people would swarm over that like there's no tomorrow, even more so than they do now.

Looks like GDDR5 is a no go. :(  Check the original post.
