     SuperRV770: ATI the mono GPU leader?

    While the Radeon HD 4800’s performance/price ratio seems to have gained almost unanimous approval since their release, the GeForce GTX 280 has still enabled Nvidia to keep first place. However, in addition to the Radeon HD 4870 X2, it appears ATI is also working on with the collaboration of several of its partners a solution called the "SuperRV770". It should empower a mono GPU card to threaten models equipped with the GT200.

    In actuality, it will consist of a Radeon HD 4870 with a pre-installed watercooling system and an unblocked bios allowing to push the GPU up to 950 MHz and the GDDR5 up to 2400 MHz versus the current 750/1800 MHz. This will represent respective gains of 27% and 33%. Given relatively small difference which currently exists with the GTX 280, it is indeed likely that such cards will take the prize away from Nvidia’s latest creation.

    The first card of this type (some uncertainty subsists in terms of its bios), the Diamond Radeon HD 4870 XOC Black Edition, has moreover already been announced with default frequencies of 800/2200 MHz and availability that should theoretically start today at an exclusive partner. ASUSTeK, Sapphire and GeCube amongst others have already expressed interest in this type of product.

     AMD launches 3 new Phenom X4s

    AMD has just announced the release of 3 new Phenoms:

    - The AMD Phenom X4 9950 Black Edition ­ 2.6GHz @ 140W; $235
    - Energy-efficient AMD Phenom X4 9350e ­ 2.0GHz @ 65W; $195
    - Energy-efficient AMD Phenom X4 9150e ­ 1.8GHz @ 65W; $175

    The first thing to notice is that AMD is launching a new model set 100 MHz higher for the same price as the previous 9850 at 2.5 GHz. The small boost in frequency should enable this CPU to be equivalent to Intel’s Q6600. Unfortunately, this is to the detriment of power consumption and the TDP gains 15W compared to the previous model for a total of 140W. Therefore, even with its Q6600 Intel holds a clear advantage in terms of power consumption all the while being slightly less expensive (officially $224).

    After the Phenom X4 9100e in march, two new models with a TDP of 65W will make an appearance based on B3 stepping. AMD will take advantage of the occasion to attain 2 GHz on the 9350e while the 9100e and 9150e will both be at 1.8 GHz. The TDP will be reached thanks to a nominal voltage of 1.15v versus, for example, 1.3v for a 9950.
