Once all the reference designs are out, how do graphics card manufacturers compete for enthusiasts' dollars? How about a factory overclock with a custom cooling solution like that being offered on the Sapphire Radeon HD 5850 Toxic OC Edition - http://www.overclock...e_hd5850_toxic/

Wow, overclocked it out performs a stock clocked 5870, that is impressive.
Good review.

I am the reason we can't have nice things.

Hello all!
I've buyed this card, and i've read your great review... i need some answers:
1) The default clock of the memories it's 1125MHz QDR (4500MHz) and not 1050Mhz... it's a different sample on the review?
2) What's the max clock frequency for the ram (hynix?) chips?
