AMD has announced the “worlds fastest graphics card,” the ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2. The graphics card delivers 2.4 teraFLOPs of processing power, and 2GB of memory designed to handle your games at a frame rate and quality greater than other graphics cards on the market.

Brent Justice at HardOCP said, “Our gameplay experiences with the ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 were phenomenal, especially once we raised the antialiasing setting to high levels... Who would have thought we’d ever be seeing Oblivion at 2560x1600 with 24X AA? This means you can load up old games and set crazy high AA settings. AMD deserves huge kudos for really kicking AA up a notch,” and PC Perspective said the new card "is able to run away from NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 280 1GB card handily. Our various game tests proved this - Crysis, Call of Duty 4 and GRID showed big gains for AMD's new card at resolutions 2,048 x 1,536 and 2,560 x 1,600,"

The ATI Radeon HD 4850 will be available in September for an MSRP of $399.
