Firing Squad: ATI Radeon HD 4830 Performance Preview

Firing Squad writes: "Since successfully launching their RV770 family of Radeon 4850/4870 cards earlier this summer, ATI has been slowly filling in gaps in their overall product lineup. At the ultra high-end of the GPU market ATI has their flagship Radeon 4870 X2, a graphics card which is universally acknowledged to be the fastest in the world. As its name implies, the 4870 X2 fuses two Radeon 4870 1GB GPUs together onto one card and is priced in the $500+ range.
