Been hearing about the 4890 for a couple weeks now, its supposed to be ATI answer to gtx295 or something like that.  Have you guys at AVA heard or seen anymore stuff about this card?

Both ATI and NVidia are on a 6-month dev cycle.  The 4870 has been out for past 9 months, so ATI is somewhat late to the party coming out with new tech.
Have not heard anything about the 4890 just yet, but it seems to me like it is just a higher-clocked GPU than the 4870.  Time will tell if it is a die shrink as well.  This seems to be just what NVidia did with GTX 280 to GTX 285 (55nm from 65nm and 10% higher clock speeds).
