Yep - got mine this morning - cheapest I've seen.

very hot deal. Does this mean the 4890 is going to fall in price?
Can someone please help me. I am considering this and the 1GB version. I plan on playing all my games at 1920x1200 res. Would this 512mb card handle that high resolution or is it better going for the extra ram in the 1GB version.
My current spec
Intel Quad Core Q6600 2.4ghz
4GB DDR2 677 Ram
520W Corsair Power Supply
Ati 512mb X1950 Graphics

Thanks

Hi Chris, the 4890 has already fallen in price quite a bit.
For an extra 35 quid (ish) You can get the 4890 from overclockers on this week special offer. It has much better frame rates at your resolution. It will also be a better investment as games graphics improve the 4870 wont keep up quite as well as a 4890, its really a better choice for the future.
And yes at your res the 1gb is very necessary, I think it improves frame rates by about 12% over a 512mb card.
Hope this helps

Im still waiting for this to drop down a few more pounds in a few weeks(hopefully). Ive already lent my mates 4870 to xfire with my own 4870:)

4890 prices will plummet when the 5000 series with directx 11 support come out later this year. No such thing as future proofing in graphics cards!

Is it possible to get tru hd and dts ma from this card through a suitable hdmi input av amp if I purchase a ati/hdmi adaptor for this card or would I need a soundcard that supports tru hd and dts master audio?

The 1GB 4870 is definitely worth it over the 512mb, but I'm not so sure the 4890 is worth the extra as most benchmarks show about a 10-15fps improvement. Personally I'd save the 35 quid for upgrading from the 4870.

i would wait until new cards from ati and nvidia come out will be cheaper to run power wise and lot better inc direct x 11 :thumbsup:

Anyone know if this is compatible with a Foxconn VIA PT890 Motherboard

Here are some details for the VIA PT890 chipset.

There is a section on that page that says "Optimized to work seamlessly with the latest PCI Express graphics cards, the VIA PT890 includes support for x16 PCI Express connectivity..."

So, the chipset supports PCI Express - I imagine that this should work fine with your motherboard.

Further to Biffo's post, also check the physical space available in the case & whether the PSU (power supply) is capable enough.

That sounds interesting. I'm baffled as to why alot of these cards continue to run high wattage even when on idle.

Still voted hot as its a very nice card:thumbsup:

That sounds interesting. I'm baffled as to why alot of these cards continue to run high wattage even when on idle.

The 4870 (and the 4890) run hot at idle because GDDR5 is very power hungry and they can't down-clock their memory. Because of the way GDDR5 works changing the memory clock results in the screen going blank for a fraction of a second, so ATI just locks the memory at one speed.

I don't think the DX11 cards will be any different as this is a side-effect of the memory controller having to run a whole bunch of tests every time GDDR5's clockspeed is changed. The only way around this would be for the graphics chip to have enough on-board memory to hold a copy of the screen, but that would need about 32MB of embedded ram so it's not likely to happen any time soon.

cheers biffo and crossbow
i might also need to get a new psu as my ones a mini 250w
can anyone recommend one to power this, 2 hard drives and a quad core psu? tbh i dont know how my 250w manages

Do you have the space in your case to fit a standard-sized PSU? Std size is 150 x 85 x 140 mm (W x H x D).

If yes, a 500-600W good quality one with 2x 6pin dedicated PCI-E connectors will do nicely.

tbh i dont know how my 250w manages
No problem if it's a quality one, & there's no power-hungry graphics card to run ;-)
