AMD releases the 1st 1GHz GPU: ATI Radeon HD 4890
AMD today launched a factory-overclocked version of its ATI Radeon HD 4890 graphics chipset. The move takes the 850MHz core clock speed of the standard edition and boosts it to 1GHz.
This overclocked model is the first GPU to reach the 1 gigahertz milestone, which according to AMD will boost the peak computing power from 1.36 teraflops to 1.6 making it theoretically faster than NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 285.
Even though this card will be pulling more power AMD say the card will run fine on fan cooling.
The card should be available through regular 3rd parties such as ASUS, MSI and XFX.
No word on pricing but the card should be available immediately.
