The ATI Radeon 4890 graphics card is ATI's new single core flagship graphics card. Based on the 4870 architecture this card features a new GPU and much faster GDDR5 memory. Clocking in at 850MHz core speed and 3900MHz out of the box this card is anywhere between 10-15% faster than the previous 4870 graphics card. In our own testing we found these cards to perform extremely well but things start to get really exciting when you use the supplied ATI Overdrive utility within the catalyst drivers. Early rumous have seen cards reaching insane speeds as high as 1000MHz core and 4800MHz memory. In our own testing we found the cards remained stable upto 990MHz core and 4600MHz memory which results in nearly 30% performance improvement over the 4870 cards and performance was incredibly close and sometimes matching GTX 285 performance levels. There is no guarantee that these cards will overclock the same for everyone but it seems safe to say cards should happily run at 950MHz core area and 4400MHz memory. Needless to say ATI have a winner on their hands with the 4890 graphics cards.

Great price though I have heard that it can be dodgy ordering things that aren't in stock at scan, as they can never get updated and you never get anything. Anyone care to add in on this?
I'd personally just go for the Novatech one to be safe, with the 3% quidco it probably works out about the same.

can any experts tell me whe the ati 5 series is out? i really need to upgrade, my pc keeps shutting down.

Rumours have suggested that they are officially released tomorrow, but will actually hit the shop a fair bit later in the year. Very difficult to say though, Ati are very cagey about it. They don't even have anything about it on their own website.

I thought the rumor was they are out tomorrow with limited stock available at launch.
