Regardless of that though, its double the amount of shader units in the Radeon HD 4670s RV730 GPU and 25 percent fewer units than there are in the excellent RV770 chip, which featured 160 shader units or 800 stream processors.

There are a couple of retail cards in house already that'll be reviewed in traditional fashion and if there's time today, I'll pop down and see how well the reference card overclocks. I'll update in a blog post over the next day or so and add an addendum to the article. :)

Haven't bothered looking up more manufacturers.

As of right now it seems impossible to get a HD4770 with the "reference" cooler. None of the manufacturers I've checked (and I checked a few more since last) have any HD4770 resembling the one tested at bit-tech and elsewhere. I'm not really liking this, to be honest...
