AMD 4890: The video card that broke the 1GHz stock barrier

In another sign of the upcoming final battle between parallel and sequential processing, AMD has released a Radeon 4890 video card which is core-clocked (at stock) to an amazing 1GHz. That’s not so much past the 850 and 900MHz cards that are already out there, but it’s a nice symbolic measure you can point at.

I’m sure we’ll be hearing more about this monster of a card very soon.
