AMD has announced that it is the first GPU maker to deliver a GPU running at 1GHz. AMD's HD 4890 is the video card that the GPU is part of and to reach the high speeds the GPU is factory overclocked and air-cooled.

The new card uses GDDR5 RAM and can deliver 1.6 TereaFLOPS of processing power thanks to the high clock speed. AMD claims that is 50% more than NVIDIAS single GPU solution can deliver.
The card also supports DirectX 10.1, and Havok physics processing. Perhaps the best news is that while the card is already hitting 1 GHz from the factory, card partners like XFX point out that the GPU has overclocking headroom to spare so versions with even more performance will be seen.
