It's just ATI's price-to-performance scaling. Lower performance, lower price.
k thanks guys and well i got a 4850 1gb right now and im thinkin in upgrading in some time so which one would be better the 4890 or 5770? as i believe both of them have the same core clock at 850mhz
4890 is significantly faster than 5770. In fact a 5770 is equivalent or slightly less powerful than 4870.
The 4890 till beat out the 5770 everytime. The memory bus on a 5770 is only 128bit compared to the 4890 at 256bit. However, the 5770 is DX11 and the 4890 is DX10.1. So it is your call. I'd honestly take the 4890 for the better performance.
It runs hotter, louder and uses alot more power, doesnt have DX11 and has no new driver updates regarding improvements. jay, have you seen the cat betas for december? [H] used them on 1 game, 20% improvement
