Hmm. That core choice is odd...I would have called it a 7930. :lol:

Cool card!

PowerColor. :sick:

Heard many many compaint about their build quality..

 

Otherwise, if I ignore the mane of manufacturer, it is a good product.

Great review as always, ccokeman!! :)

^^ Rumors? again? I'm pretty much tired of them. Once a rumor is published in one website, it always gets amplified everywhere else.. And the worst part? In most of the cases, when the original product comes out, it is not as good as the 'rumored' product. :-/

The rumored HD8850 is nothing more than a rebadged 7950 w/boost.

You're right Dan, these old eyes of mine misread the rebadge article. :)

It's something that no eyes should have to endure! Just like the HD5450 should be let to rest peacefully!

The AMD blog that I posted in my thread shows that we will be getting Sea Island and the mobile variations this year though, Kavari too! The reason for the rebadging baffles me though, they could've just made it a routine revision.
