WE'VE JUST FOUND the specs for ATI's Radeon HD 4770, complete with the world's very first 40nm desktop chip, the RV740.
Flashing its best bits for all to see over on VR-Zone, AMD's new card seems aimed to kill its Nvidia 9800GT rival in performance dollar for dollar.
Just looking at the specs it would seem the HD 4770 is not just faster than the 9800GT, but itssuggested retail price of 99$ (probably as low as $90 E-tail) will have Nvidia panting after a frantic run for punters' money.
The 9800GT is currently priced between $119 and $139, but we bet the Green Goblin does a bit of price adjustment when the 4770 hits shelves.
Take a look at the slides culled from PC Pop and decide for yourselves. µ
But it's OK cos he thinks the battery life is crap
Callas to Cupertino
Cheers, trebles and big bonuses all round
