By running four HD 4850 in CrossfireX you can experience Crysis at one quarter the speed as with a single card.  While that may not sound like what should be true, it is in fact the reality.  TweakTown did these tests after the hotfix was created by AMD, but it looks like there is still some serious work to be done at the driver level.

Legit Reviews has had the time, and not just a bit of luck, getting the 9800 GTX+ running and compared to the HD 4850.  The 4850's MSRP of $199 makes it a bit cheaper than the $229 the GTX+ is expected to sell at, but the performance gap is a little wider than that.  Take a look at the full review to see the difference.

Flash! AMD Radoeon HD 4850s show up en masse!

NVIDIA Dumps on the Parade

Just because we hate our readers we have YET ANOTHER short graphics card review for your perusal. This time we have tossed the newly announced, but not yet available, GeForce 9800 GTX+ on the test bench and compared it to the announced, and maybe available, AMD Radeon HD 4850.

Yes, Virginia, this really is a 55nm NVIDIA GPU

We've been getting some feedback from readers about our GeForce 9800 GTX+ news and revelation that it is indeed a 55nm part - not simply an overclocked version of G92.  Here are some various forms of proof:

AMD screwed up; the HD 4850 went on sale in Europe before it should have, so everyone now knows what it is.  They had no choice but to inflict a sleepless night on hardware reviewers, who had their NDA suddenly yanked out from under them.  nVIDIA decided that they just had to try to piss on AMD's parade by moving up the release of the die shrunken 9800 GTX+.  Guess what nVIDIA?  No one has had time to review it, not even Ryan ... though he did get some information up.

Get the message about knee jerk release date changes yet?

"The AMD Radeon HD 4850 512MB card is a good performing card that is able to match both the GeForce 8800 GT and the 9800 GTX card in our initial preview of just a couple of major gaming titles. NVIDIA has some more tricks up their sleeve though with a little part called the GeForce 9800 GTX+ meant solely to rain on AMD's launch day parade. Whether or not that will pan out has yet to be seen."
