Remember how we all swooned over Diamond's ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT in June of last year? At the time, that was pretty much your only shot at seeing 1GB of memory on a single graphics card. Fast forward to now, and we've got what's widely believe to be this planet's very first 2GB card. The PowerColor PCS HD4850, which is based on the RV770 core, comes with 800 stream processors and two whole gigabytes of GDDR3 memory. And just think, next summer you'll be sticking your nose up to find GPUs emerging with "only" this much memory. So fickle, we are.
