There will come a day, such a day when all will be told more than they wish to know, what one hears may explain the past, it may explain the future, but it has never made a difference either way and it will change nothing. Some day.... But that is not this day, and I don't know when, I just don't know.

Awesome performance for $199 :thumbs-up:
If the 4850 performs this good, what will the 4870 be like? *drool*
I am anxious to see what the 4870 and mainly the x2 will do, looks like its fixing to be time to upgrade again....
I guess I have no excuse for not being as awesome as King... - iKillSteal
Seriously, big credit goes out to King for maintaining this list. He puts a lot of work into this thing and he deserves our thanks! - Verran

Will it be worth spending more cash on the Nvidia for the CUDA ability though?? Would be interesting to see the ATI points per day for folding

I'm wondering whether the reference PCB is the same as the HD3870. In that case the VF900-Cu could be used as a proper cooling solution, leaving the original heat sinks on the card.
