    [quote]Hardware-Infos on Geforce GTX 275 vs. Radeon HD 4890[/quote]

    My strong felling what RV790 is going to be:

    850MHz GPU
    1150MHz GDDR5 (Latest available is rated at 1250MHz GDDR5, ATI is testing now)
    192 *5D = 960 Stream Processors
    48 TMU’s
    12 SIMD
    First sample of the board: 1024MB RAM at first, later date at 2048MB.

    At first announcement MSRP between $279 – $299; later date price $249

    At this specs it should compete with GTX280, and very close to GTX285. Edit: -OR- in some situation it will beat GTX285.

      With this specs Radeon HD 4890 OC edition should dethrone GTX285, if it will be clocked 950MHz GPU / 1250MHz GDDR5.

    Wednesday general item IV: Dumb. Dumb. Dumb.

    If Nvidia upclocks the GTX260 Core216 and renames it, it should be a GTX 270, not a 275. If they want to make a downclocked dual GT200, THAT should be the GTX275. They kind of screwed it up with the GTX285. That should be the GTX290.

    Someone at Nvidia’s PR dept. should be fired, and there should be a ‘Consistent product naming’ position created. It’s not that hard, and it would make your customers much happier.

    AOL is still around? LOL.

    Their trial CDs had infested the entire country. Not a problem tho, they provided me with nine months of free internet access. Thanks.

      9 months of slow dial up crap? lol

        That slow Dial-up crap may be someone’s only means of getting on the internet. My aunt lives about 10 minutes from Lake Placid in Florida, and high speed is not an option for her.
