There’s good news for Mac Pro owners: the latest Mac OS X 10.5.7 update offers support for ATI's Radeon HD 4870 card. The Radeon HD 4870 graphics card has been an option for new Mac Pro buyers since the Mac Pro was refreshed in March. Around the same time, Apple began offering a Radeon HD 4870 kit for Mac Pros manufactured since 2008. Since the card was announced, however, customers who pre-ordered the card have been waiting. Some recipients received the Radeon HD 4870 card earlier than expected, but were advised by Apple to wait to install the card until a driver update was made available. Tuesday’s... Read more...

AMD’s board partners, however, don’t usually take the same approach. When AMD launches a new ATI Radeon, the first batch of cards to hit typically follow the reference design to the letter, and custom, factory overclocked... Read more...

The Radeon HD 4800 series cards, however, were still excellent cards and they were offered at extremely competitive prices, which put significant pressure on NVIDA. At the time of their launch, the Radeon HD 4850 and Radeon HD 4870 were both less expensive and more powerful than the GeForce 9800 GTX and GeForce GTX 260, respectively. Since then, NVIDIA has reacted with a quick round of price cuts.While enthusiasts... Read more...
